    I dont understand why nobody wants eow yards ive got 45 of them and i average $40 a vist thats $900 a week for me That pays my guys and the rest is for me. What's the big deal? Litlle miss cheapo has to get her grass cut to and she pays! Takes me maybe 30-40 mins a yard................

    is the $900 after you pay your guys?
    at 40 bucks per yard and you have 45 accounts, thats $1800.

    every other week, and i dont get it either. Makes tons more sence than the person saying every 10 days max. How could you possibly schedule that?

    I am glad you cleared that up, because I was like, "what the heck is EOW." I thought that I wasn't reading something correctly.

    I do ''E.O.W'' on select lawns, and charge cost plus half.
    Weekly = $20, bi-weekly or that is every two weeks = $30.

    every 10 days= Mon ,Thurs ,Mon, Thurs or Tues, Fri,Tues,Fri It alternates 10 days 11 days 10days 11days Not really that hard to schedule. It's not my preference but gives you one more cut per month than cutting every 2 weeks.
