    How many miles are you guys driving on an average week? How many lawns make you drive those miles? I driving 166 miles for 35-45 lawns.

    I used to have a nice tight route, 100 lawns in a 6 mile radius. Never put more then 11 miles a day on my truck. It was beautiful.

    2 crews with different routs mine is 4 towns where my partners is half of one town with a brief trip to chase down 2 commercial accounts one town over. Now we have about 190 lawns atm and 150+ of them are in the home town. We have clocked this before and the numbers were surprising on his crew that does about 110 lawns his average drive was like .7 miles per account. On mine it was higher 1.8 miles per account but my average lawn price is 5 dollars per lawn more than his.
