I'm just starting off on my own and feel very luck to have 31 full time mowing accounts and 6 every other week accounts. I'm finaly able to mow them all in three days now that its not raining every other day up here in the northeast. Now that my side job list is getting smaller I wonder how many more accounts I can take on with out getting to big for fall cleanups and not be able to service them without the calls "where are you". I ask this cuz a buddy of mine is getting out of the business and is willing to "give" me 10 accounts at the end of July, and potentialy 35 by the end of the year. I'm thinking I need to hire someone if I get 10 more. An average of 44 mowing will kill me if i'm alone. prices range from $50 to $125 a week for the new 10. I'm making good money now and own my mowers (exmark 60' lazer and 36" walkbehind. My only debt is insurace, taxes, fuel ($800 last month), and small payments on my F250. So my question is how many lawns per man is a good ratio.
