Looking for advice from all the solo acts out there. How do you make a living doing just weekly lawn maintenance by yourself? How many accounts can you handle a week? Seems like if your lucky enough to get 50-60 accounts a week you'd be able to make some decent $$$ but your working your a$$ off. And what happens if you get alot of rain for several days each week, do you cut in the rain and spread disease and ruin lawns or do you try to do 100-120 lawns the following week which is impossible and gets to the point I'm trying to make! How do you make $$$ as a solo act????????????? If youre in the Northeast as I am, how many weeks are you cutting on average per year? I'm going into my second year in the Lawn care biz and have only 30 or so accounts and I stay pretty busy except when it rains, call me stupid but I don't cut when it rains, the ground was mush last year with all the rain we had and even several days after the rain had stopped I found alot of the lawns were still mush and I left some nasty tire tracks on those lawns. How do you continue to work in the rain and not mess up the lawns? And if you do hold off when it rains, how do you get to those customers if you have 50-60 a week and it just rained 3 days in a row??? I'd love to know the secret. Realistically 40 lawns a week seems like a good average for a solo act, right? So if you get on average $30 a lawn your talking $1200 a week, which sounds ok but how many weeks is it for, 24 or 25 in CT is the way I see it, and that is stretching it because mid summer it slows down to every other week, but lets still say 25 and that breaks down to $30k, and I know Im not including the spring and fall cleanups and snow removal because they vary and I dont see all my customers needing either nor myself being able to do all of them either. So how are some of you doing $60k and up each year? So what am I missing, whats the secret to making $$$ as a solo act?????
