OK, radical thoughts. I know this may be a locality thing, so bear with me here. Most of the guys i know around here that mow do commercial properties too. Some only do commercial. They have told me what they make and it rather surprises me. I know one contract for a leading grocery store in our area (very high end as far as grocery stores go) gets like 1200 a month. It takes a three person crew like 4-7 hours per week there. It has alot of bushes and beds. So, you gotta do the numbers and wonder "why". I make as much and/or more doing just residentials. And i get a whole LOT less hassles. I know not EVERY commercial is like that. But 75% around here are. Strip malls, main mall, all store fronts on main streets. The only half way decent payers are the big factories. (oil and aluminum) And even they are getting cheap. I have a couple easy commercials that pay ok. Not great, but ok. Am i missing something guys?
