    Gross doesn't mean anything to me. I have grossed $1905 in one day(record for me I guess) I ended up netting 1400 or so.

    Yea, I've netted over $1000 already in 1 day but it was doing hardscapes and tree removals. No where close to that doing mowing.

    I've done 800-900 on a long day. It's easy to do 1k with a helper.

    When I was solo my monday was a 9-10hr. day which grossed $950 in mowing. Tight route and small commercial on the high end. The rest of the week was usually 5-600 a day. This was 10 years ago when a guy could make a good living by himself. Kinda makes we wish I was solo sometimes, but it sure is hard. My hats off to all you solo guys.
