about 200 weekly lawn accounts. about 250-300 weed control customers. a lot of odd jobs (landscape, cleanups, etc.) per week. have 5 really big commercial accounts. I have 4 guys that make a bout $500/week. keep in mind though I've been at this for 15 years. and wasn't until the last few years that it's been running perfect and efficiently. I almost wrecked my marriage by trying to do everything myself and let the business run me.
I had projected making $200k this year after expenses (before taxes) but another dry year has me about $18,000 up from last year when had projected $25,000. But hey I also added on my brother in law on salary to run the crew and I haven't hardly have to go out and break my back this year at all so I'll take it.
