    Depends on what kind of equipment you have.. Are they weekly or by-weekly cuts.. :confused:

    Mowing and all the trimmings, what do you think you can do in a day ?? 10-15 ?? times 5 or 6 days a week,,, 60 to 70 I guess..
    A 36" walk behind would save allot of time !! Allot depends on how fast you are, etc... As soon as I could get the cash I'd invest in something bigger...

    lets see figure probably about 25 to 30 mins for each lawn with a 21" to mow, trim, and blow debris and then driving time back and forth to the jobs and if you worked around 10 hours a day...

    I would say around 15 lawns in a day you could get in.
