    Some states where lawns are to small,grass is moist most of the time, types of grasses are to gentle for Any mowers over 400 pounds, lawns are bagged edged , trimmed if not for full property maintenance how can big companies do it? 3- 4 employees present at all times all for about 80-100$

    Every Employee should know what they are supposed to be doing so when you have 3-4 the job gets done super quick and you have no wasted time then on to the next. As far as the know what they are supposed to be doing part, thats the managers responsibility. When you run efficient you have a leg up on your competition. Many companies don't even measure lawns. They probably don't even know what their production rate is.

    im solo, and my prices vary on the size of the property and what i have to do everytime i cut, im not gonna charge someone 160.00 a month to do an 160 by 20 lot once a week, theyll just tell me to kiss their ass. you might find a duck every once in a while, but now days people are too damn cheap.
