    Use to have 450 sold off a bunch this year 165 and hoping next year 120
    Went from 4 3 men cutting crews to 2 2 men cutting crews and 1 floater 4days of cutting
    Next year 4 guys to do 120 in 4 days is fine for me the money isn't there like it use to be for cutting

    First year in business other than doing my neighbors yard and I'm at 15-20 accounts with just word of mouth and Craigslist. I would have to look to see what the exact number is but for part time it's ahead of what I expected this year.

    50 to 55 lawn cuts per week in 30-ish hrs with 2 employees (they do all the mowing). Ten years so far.

    About 30yrs I guess, I cut back this year to around 50 properties a week. I take Mon and Fri off and I stopped working on the weekends. Me and my son. I even took a break from Lawnsite this season!
