What percentage of the lawn/landscape sales become profit? What percentage of sales go to reimbersable cost? What percentage go to buying and maintaining equipment ? I know one of the rags ( I don't remember which one) give averages per state. I am just mistified at my costs of doing business. What should one do to keep cost down. I know about packing a sack lunch and making routes flow. but from a business stand what do all you grey beards do to make sure you are profitable?
