    How many companies on this site gross over a million $ annually, and mostly
    do maintenance type work? Mowing, mulch, fertilizing etc.

    I know all the headaches believe me. I'm closing in on that in sales and was questioning whether it's worth continuing in this direction or not.

    LOL At that point, it is a whole different business. You go from a landscape management business owner to a full time babysitter. My best friend is there with 26 employees, and he has new stories to tell every time we talk.

    we are almost at that number now. Probably will not hit it this year, but for sure will next year.

    but we do pool service and landscape install as well...

    I'd Probably have a heart attack before I reached 1 million Dollars Gross in the Lawn/Landscape business. I really don't think this area would support it, unless someone was to buy on one of the heavy hitters.

    do you oversee everything yourself or do you have a couple main guys to delegate to. right now it's just me to oversee 10 employees/laborers mostly Brazilians and everything else to run a business. I also fertilize 350 accounts by myself. The point is I don't think I can continue to to do all this and grow my business.

    Depends on where you live. I don't live in a big city so I would doubt that I will ever hit a million especially doing just maintnance. I have employees and we do pretty much everything but I'm a small opporation and like it that way. I'm not looking to run a million dollar business, thats not my goal I just want to make a good living for my family and I do.
