    Right now I'm good for what I have for lawns. I mow about 10 on tuesday,26 wednesday, 36 thrusday and 28 friday. Mondays & Tuesday are usually for other services such as weeding, trimming & landscaping and I was busy last year doing that those days. I can add 8-10 more Wednesdays and maybe 2-5 Thrusdays but don't really want anymore for Friday unless there next to existing. My route is tight on Wednesdays & Thrusdays. Has anyone ever put another crew out for limited days. My thinking is to add another crew for Wednesday, Thrusday & Friday. I've gotten several calls within last week plus gonna be doing some flyers. Have always picked up alot from word of mouth & drive bys. I have the equipment to add another crew but don't know if I should. My days mowing usually end by 4-5pm. Should I just work longer and if I get overwelmed add another crew.
