I have a dilema. About 90% of my lawns are 1/2 acre and up. The few small lawns we do are not profitable. (I'm talking 10,000 sq ft or less). It isn't my pricing or how long they take its unloading, loading and drive time. An example one lawn we do I get $30.00 for it takes 2 guys 10 minutes (Which for you seasoned pros is $90 per man hour) but if you factor in 10 minutes to and from this property and 5 minutes load and unload it becomes a break even account. Now the dilema: I know tighten the route get 4 lawns in a row and the profits will go up. But when I add a crew just for small lawns I will have to be able to do 75 $30 lawns a week to make a decent profit. So do I keep my pricing competitive and try and get 75 small lawns or do I jack up the price and take a lot longer to get to 75 lawns. Basically I would like to have a small lawn crew in place by the end of next season or the beginning of 2006. So for you guys who do small lawns any insights would be helpful. There are several good reasons why I want to do small lawns they would be in addition to my larger props not instead of. Thanks.
