    I am trying to come up with a business plan.

    My question is, in your experience, on average how many lawns can a two-person crew cut in an eight hour day? Of course job proximity is important, but I would like to know what you've found in your experience overall?

    Thanks so much for your input. This site is great!

    A lot of varieables here, but if you keep a tight route and size down you should be able to do atleast 12-14 yds a day. Provided you have a good 32"mower and a worker that knows what he's doing.

    Thanks a ton Master of the Lawn.

    That's about the number I expected.

    I am curious if that's about what most of you have found out as well?

    Depending on size and how close together they are, we used to do between 15 and 25 for an 11 hour day.

    Hey Hoolie, 15-25 yds a day? About what size of yards are these? I'am guessing Postage stamp size or a littel bigger.
