profit on landscape installs, are you happy?
based on what 50$ or in general?
i just saw on tv last night that pamela andersons hairdresser gets 600 an hr.
jessica simpsons makeup artist gets something like 4k a day
If you are only making 50.00hr, then you might want to look at a different line of work.
My net profit is 125.00-150.00 per hour.
Thats the problem with our whole industry is that my guess would be that only 15% of the landscapers/lawn main. are smart enough to run a real business and charge the right price.
If the customer does'nt like it you have to have the balls to walk away.
all based on location. 50/ hr. in some places is good. In tampa , yes choose another line of work. My area you can do well at that rate tell many customers to take a hike you will be out of business. In your area you have your picking of whom to work for, then you can be very indepedent.d Location, Location, and Location
Net profit 125-150 when you are billing out for 7 guys!
i don't believe that for a minute....
to NET $125.00/ hr you would have to be grossing at least $150/hr.
i don't believe that you are actually billing over $6K/week per man.
if you are talking a TRUE profit, ater ALL overhead, and payroll.. sure why not...
this means that if you work a guy the normal 2K hrs/year you will make $100K profit just from one person's work......
I'll just hire 2 guys and make $200K/year by sitting on my butt doing nothing.....
I agree and call BS on this.
to each his own and more power to ya
