A few years ago, when I was young and stupid, 2 of us did 32 lawns in a day...ranging from 8K to 18K sq/ft, all within 8 miles. That was when I did 120 weekly. Now I do 40 a week, make more money, and am alot happier.

two man crew capabilities

Well, that also depends on what my husband calls the daily bull, if your equipment is sound, your help is on time and doesn't have to be in early for some appointment, they can get 15-21 done in a day, provided there is also not a lot of travel time between accounts.

There are too many factors to give a solid estimate on how many 2 could get done. I would say account density would be the biggest factor. Travel time between lawns can kill you. If you have several on the same street, that will obviously take less time than the same amount spread about town. Good luck. Check out "Network with people from your area" part of this site. What areas do you primarily take care of?

well goodbeus I am glad that you have the will and stamina to work that many by yourself, but how many hours in your day? I guess I should have been more specific that our 2 man crew does that in 5-6 hrs per day with travel time. With bull, like specified of equipment breakdown, vehicle breakdown and human breakdown it can develop into longer hours.

5-6 hours a day is not a day...that's half a day or an early day...quiting time at 12:00 - 1:00 pm, starting at 7:00 am...but 15-21 in that time period still isn't bad

We do lawns in Fort Worth, Arlington, HEB, Southlake, Grapevine, Keller, Colleyville , Wautaga and parts of Roanoke. That's why I commented on the travel time. We certainly drive alot. Good luck.
