Typically, I start production at the end of March (weather permitting) with round 1 of our lawn apps. I do this solo before I bring anyone back. I then bring my main laborer back an work side-by-side till we get too busy for me to be in the field and manage the business. At this point an additional laborer is hired and works through the end of the seaon, typically the end of November. I am thinking of staying in the field as a way to keep labor costs down but I am unsure if this is a wise decision. It certainly frees up my time with paperwork and invoicing; however, there are also times when I have nothing to do so it leaves me pondering the thought!! I am sure this is a common issue within growing businesses so I figured I can get some good feedback.
