    50k fromm 200 jobs would average 250 bucks per job. To do this you would need to finish 7 jobs a day for 30 working days. That COULD be done by 2 crews. IF it never rained in the 6 weeks....

    LSDLS your about rite on it i'm averaging anywhere from 105 per hour per crew up to180 an hour per crew some jobs i have are on a flat rate .like for instance todayi did a 200 dollar job an it took 50 minutes.i have a 1300 dollar job 1 crew can do in 8 hours. those are flat rate jobs an then i have the hourly rate jobs.the system i have has worked great i've been on my own for 7 years an never have had a yellow page ad an advertise very little most is all word of mouth,the motto i have stuck by is "if you tell someone you will do something make sure it gets done " its that easy
