    So I was looking at my quick books this morning while doing my billing and I am currently running 43% of my total sales in mowing.
    Thought it may be a good thread to see where everyone else stands.

    Well, I don't break out mowing separately, I lump it in with lawn and landscape maintenace which includes mowing, mulching, aeration, seeding, hedge trimming etc. I'm at 71% for that, 14.5% snow removal, 7% landscaping and 4% hauling and disposal, with the rest being materials and misc. That's since I started in 2002. The breakdown varies a bit year to year. In 2011 I was 25% snow removal. This year to date I'm at 73% maintenance, 15% landscaping and 6% snow removal.

    I'm probably around 73 percent mowing, 25 percent renovations and apps, and 2 percent snow. Don't really like doing snow, don't have the equipment to do a lot of it, won't buy the equipment since it would sit in the shop 3 winters out of ten, and only be used more then 3 times maybe 2 winters in ten.

    Thanks for the replies, i suspected we may be all over the place. The reason i ask is that as i was thinking about trying to put my eggs in different baskets in case one area falls apart.
    Keep em coming.
    Good luck to all.

    You do stripping in parking lots? Has that ever gotten you in trouble with the law? :laugh::laugh::laugh:
