    I was wondering What's the average Lawns per Week does a Solo Operater do per week, I was just wondering I do about 75 (during the growing season)and i was wondering If that's about average?:blob3:

    the size of your lawns have alot to do with the number you can do. If you have 1/4 acres lawns, you can do substantially more than if you do 1+ acres.

    I am in the 25-40 category, but most of my lawns are aroung 1/2 acre in size, and none are smaller than this.

    the bigger the mower the more lawns you can do.i use my 60 inch z on almost all my lawns big and small.the customers i have don`t care they just want there grass cut.i do close to 20 lawns a day most of them are right next to eachother which is a big plus
    but i would get a ztr and customers that are on the same street.thats the best way to get u in the 60+ range

    Most of the guys I ask around here say 40 properties for a solo operator. Some of the variables would include, how big are they, how close are they to each other, what kind of equipment do you have, what kind of extras do you do and how motivated are you.

    75 yards a week by your self seems to be alot.Are you working on sunday and mowing very small lawns"less than 1/4 acre".Thats the only way i can see one man mowing,trimming, edging ,and blowing everything off at 75 yards per week. Just seems a little unreal to me!I can tell you that the guys maintaining the 40 propertys are working alot less hours than you and probably making alot more money. I am just saying all those 75 must be side by side and VERY TINY LAWNS. :rolleyes:
