    i'm around 40 right now. earlier this year i had more than last season but i've lost some lately that put my numbers a little down.

    one i fired because he hasn't paid all season and the other quit because she can't afford my services anymore.

    I have 20 accounts right now. I started with 23 but three wanted to go to every other week at the beginning of the season so I gave them up. One acount I take care of is a townhouse complex that takes me 1 day. Its not been a ideal season to say the least. We have set a record for the hottest summer and are reaching drought records also.

    currently 22 fulltime but I cant remember the last week that I mowed that many seems like every week some one needs a lawn mowed becuase they are on vacation, thier personal mower is broke down etc. I am happy to fullfill their request and usually charge more than a contracted cut, but not too much for I want to turn it in to a full time acct when they are no longer able to cut the lawn themselves. Properties that I cut range from less than 15 mins to mow trim and blow to over three hours to just mow. Fortunately this year less travel time between accounts has been helpfull depending upon more fulltime job whether I will try to take on more next year. This summer I tried to mow three days a week and landscape two days but at the busiest part of the year I was working 7 days a week for about a month.
