    Hey guys! This question is for people who live in Canada. We have small yards compared to U.S. standards.
    Does anyone know how many lawns should be cut in a day (8 hour day) with a two man crew? Using a 21" inch. Thanks.

    Canadian lawn sizes are no different than US lawn sizes. They vary.

    I've lived in both places.

    There are lots of 1 acre, 2acre, 5 acre properties all over the GTA. In the bridle path there are lots of 1 acre properties as well.

    If you're talking about cookie cutter, tiny lawns, mow, trim, blow and go you're looking to cut about 15-30 a day if you really push and have a tight route. They are worth about $100 a month.

    If anything, the average lawn size in Canada is bigger than the US, we have way less people and more land.

    Thanks Mike. Yeah, I meant the cookie cutter homes. That's what I thought. I was estimating 16-18. I'm hiring 2 full time people plus myself. So, in reality three but won't be doing 3 people for next year. It will be two.

    I do 10-15 by myself per day. A fellow I know that has a 2 man crew does about 30.

    I would say about 10-15 cookie cutter lawns a day for me.

    Wow!! They must be fast. Do they use a few 21" inch mowers?

    Yes they use 21 inchers. Two guys cut and the third guy trims. They have a few blowers, so whoever can, blows. They are in and out pretty fast. I have been cutting near them and they are done when I am still in the back yard!

    We do a one day route in a retirement community that we bang 35 off in a day with a 2 man crew. It's a tight route some spots we have 5 yards where the truck never moves.
