I haven't turned down a job in three years. If I don't want it, then I price it high. If I get it, it is worth the overtime. If you get ovewhelmed, sell it or call the client with a number to another company.

It is not how many do I need, it is how much time do I want to spend selling myself to others.

It doesn't really matter how many lawns you have.
What really matters is how much money you make.
Good luck

Really vague, how big will the yards be? What do you use for equipment. How much overhead will you have? Do you do add on services? Travel time between jobs.

Your question is one of the reasons that this forum is here but you do have to do some homework to get some answers.

Even with all those answers, it is hard to know how many yards.

Mow Ed pretty much dialed this question in a bit, for helpful info. Also, What color are your mowers?
