depends on the size of the residential. I have one day where i do 14 a day solo, and I have the high end day that I do 6 in, some may include garden service also. 42 in total every week and 2 commercial lots that take all day on Sat. or Sun.
Don't forget the side jobs,tree work, garden renos, fence/sod repair bush trimming blah blah blah!!!!!!

I have about 75 active customers but I maintain about 30 properties as far as mowing. The rest recurring customers for plowing, cleanups, hedges etc. Then there's the one timers which I may or may not ever hear from again. Then there's this one guy named Darryl that I've been maintaining 34 acres for and never gotten paid a dime in 10 years. Nice buy though

As many as I can handle before dragging my dead do tired butt home every night.

But as many as I can get, I always feel bad then next day when I have a spare hour. I feel like every hour spent at home is an hour spent not making any money.
