    Maybe someone mentioned this, but all square feet are not created equal. Machine size, some people bag and haul off, others may be just property preservation and just cut, discharge and run to the next, no trimming. Good question to ask, but hard to compare.

    $1,986 from 2 two man lawn crews those are the only numbers that really count. The 4 of us do about 50-70 lawns a day but on that day I think we did a few more than that.
