Average Hours of Lawn Care services.

What your working hours on a average day?

When im out riding around I see lawn care trucks out like around 6:30-7:00 cutting grass. I just thought you would want to start early and end early(8-4:00maybe),but then again maybe they have so many accounts,it takes them all day.

First part of the week is landscape and installs Hardscapes. ETC.
Middle part of the week and on is mowing from sun up to sun down.
Guys average any where from 35 to 49 hours a week.

We schedule 4-10 hr days. The crews may get 2-3 hrs OT if we have a lot of extras that week. My supervisor gets about 6-8 hrs OT because of pot watering mostly.

My general routine is as follows: Wake up at 7am. Out the door by 8am. Work till 6 or 7pm. Be home by 8pm. Unload, shower, and eat no later than 9pm. Do administrative tasks till 9:30pm. Unwind till midnight, and go to sleep. Off on Sundays only till December.

Depends entirely on demand and time of the year...
On the one extreme it's from sun-up until well past dark,
on the other its weeks on end of staying home,
then there's everything in between

Peace
