    Hey guys I'm just wondering how much net profit you make a week?

    With expenses taken out and misc unknown variables..

    I gross about $900+ on my lawn mowing business.

    My top soil business makes me about $750+.

    but what does it matter, if you are solo or have 10 crews, its apples to oranges. Solo, you have very little expenses, if you have employess or crews, there are a lot more expenses as comm ins, liability ins, etc. You could gross 5 million dollars, and bring home 20% or solo, gross $50,000, and net 50%, just my 2 cents...as long as your happy, thats all that matters...

    Actually, I would expect a 3 man crew to pretty much double that in a 40 hour week. A solo operator could make $2500 during the week. I am not counting billing and maintenance and such though - just mowing.
