    I am not sure how much to tell you that you should make in a day. I think $1000-1500 a day is pretty dag gone good for two people. Especially if you can do that 4-6 days a week.

    But...

    What are your daily expenses? I can tell you this much, as long as you are making as much, or more, than you are spending in a day, you are on the right track.

    Good Luck.

    I'm a one man show and I make between 400 and 600 per day. I only mow for two/three days per week. Extra work before that.

    1,000 to 1,500 -- Wow!

  7. Wow, i must be seeing things or someone is pulling my leg. Two people cutting,pulling in 1,000 to 1,500 dollars in a day. Let me get some of that gravy train. Or is there something really funny about this.first of all 1500 divided by two is 750 and at ten hours that is seventy five bucks an hour, for lawn cutting.(per person) If you are truelly getting that your market must be great or there isnt another landscaper for a thousand miles......... Jammin

    Brandy, Jodi asked you very nice to fill in your profile where you live. I've asked many times for everyone to fill them in. I guess asking doesn't work, so now I'm telling you to fill it in. I'm tired of asking.
     
  10. Well then run along and stop your blatant trolls to this forum.
