    I never thought it was possible but I just broke 2k gross deposit a week, solo.
    Grass-cutting, mulch, you name it, yes, even some leaves ARRRGGG!

    I don't expect much repeat of this, but it's nice to know it can be done.

    oh absolutely gross LOL!

    No seriously, it's gross... There are a few hundred in expenses, don't know exactly how much but I've just never had that big a deposit, not even once in all my short 4-some years. I know I've hit 1,800 before and really it's not that far off but 2000+ no matter how I look at it, it's just sweet and seems so much more even 1999.95 don't quite cut it lol

    I was just over $1900 gross for the week, expenses were just under $400. Mowing, plus jobs involving sod removal, aeration/overseeding, and bed cleanup. Started at about 8:30, home by 5:00 every day. Took Wednesday off to take my wife and 5 daughters to Chicago to see a play, so I worked a half day Saturday with a helper. Pretty good week.

    Actually I don't know the net or the gross receipts, it's the deposit comes to 2370 tomorrow and I make my deposits every monday which is how I usually figure things. Actual work load averages 12-15k / week (300-400 / day) but it's been really busy lately... Couple of days in the 200's but other than that...
    I suppose you can figure it many different ways but I didn't cheat to make this deposit bigger...
    Only thing I hope is next week's is at least 1200 heheh...

    Still, feels good to see other guys all in about the same ballpark, means that not only the year is turning out strong but that the prices are up there and I feel on target, at least some.

    I am not trying to be a smartass or start an arguement, but how many of you guys can actually stand up and tell me you know precisely what all your expenses are? Few and far between I am gonna bet.
