    I have concentrated on mowing for so long it makes up the largest part of my business. I did notice last year two or three mulch and trimming jobs that made me six or seven hundred bucks in about five or six hours. I just dont have enough of that work to scale back on my mowing. I'm going to keep trying though.

    My best margins per hour are on simple mulch installs.

    I do 95% maintenance but when I do get an install job, I know it means big profit and quick. Most I've made in installs is clearing about $3500 in a day and a half.
