A little background: I have a small landscape design / installation biz. It's small time, just a solo biz with occasional part time help as needed. Not making a fortune by any means, but I do ok for what I need. I have never cut lawns. Outside of design and install, I also maintain landscape beds, do hedge trimming and pruning, put down mulch, etc, but have never touched the lawn (other than my own of course). I have decided to add mowing to my biz (I already do alot of edging and trimming work during my installs.) Reason being is that I've had so many request from my existing customers that at this point, it's nuts not too, and I like the idea of maintaining the entire landscape for a customer, so the whole thing is done my way. I will have around 15 - 20 weekly accounts already lined up and that's about all I'm interesting in mowing, at least at this point. Finally the question: What is the best type of mower for a guy looking to mow around 20 lawns a week max figuring the vast majority of lawns being these .25 acre cookie cutter lawns that are close enough together to spit. A few more at 1/2 acre maybe. Alot of these lawns have small areas. Would I be served best to have a say, 44" W/B and a 21 trim mower? or maybe a 36" W/B mower for these small lots? I'm quite sure a riding ztr would be overkill. Keep in mind I'm in Florida and most these lawns are flat as flat gets, but some are kinda soft and mushy during the rainy season. I expect to ask alot of ignorant mowing questions in the future, so bear with me. Thanks.
