Due to family issues, I'm evaluating turning my Virginia operation over to my operations manager and starting a much smaller business with an emphasis landscaping design & some residential mowing. Does anyone have any information on the market in Nashville and Franklin area? I just want to develop enough business to keep myself busy and support my SS retirement, etc. In Virginia a typical residential 1/4 acre lot is @ $50 a mow. We figure all of our work on 50-55 dollars an hour for labor and $70 a yard installed for mulch. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
