From what seems the average lawn ($35) you guys seem to make a killing.

    Getmow...
    The 4th man on the maint switches back and fourth between cutting gr***, and construction. This year was a tough year in the Norhteast....it has rained almost everyother day making the lawns tall and thick. As soon as the weather breaks I put as many people out there as I can...even if its just an extra guy to run back and fouth with barrels.
    Under normal conditions, Id have only 3 men on a maint crew...and 1 with me for constrution. Basically between the two crews operating in a tight geographical area...one backs the other. After all is said and done, at the end of the day we probably average around 1400 per day

    MLI, It was just a suggestion. I did the 3 and 4 man thing early on. Mostly for the "big jobs". Now we run strictly 2 man crews, the big jobs are scheduled for 2 crews. BTW all of our business is within a 15 mile radius but the traffic is a nightmare.

    You guys are scareing me with all these numbers. I've been mowing for twenty years in south Florida. If me and a helper make 400.00 in a day, thats good. Now hang on to your mouse. I'm no scrub. I make more on my lawns than most in my area. And provide quality. Its got a lot to do with where you live. This forum has taught me that. Helpers have been my biggest challenge.

    Right now I am flying solo and making around $325 a day. I plan on hiring a worker and doing much more next year.Lawn care biz I used to work for only made around 445 a day with a 2 man crew after reading some of these posts i guess that isn't much.
