One more comment. You sound like me. Trying to justify this account with not enough saved up capital or equipment. I took on 20 houses weekly for a property management company right when I started. No trailer, one home depot lawn mower, one homelight 25 mph blower broke on 6 lawn, and a self feeder homelight weed eater. I worked twice as hard because I refused to buy new equipment because I didnt think it would help that much, 6 months later I got a toro, another 6 months a walk behind and another 6 months a rider. I could do all the accounts in 7 hours with a helper maybe a long day with out a helper. All the houses where pretty close to one another. Listen I am telling you these guys up north do 1000000 more leaves then we do. If there where not leaves on the ground you wouldnt be asking so listen to them. GET A LEAF LOADER you can make one. Also you cant do that many lawns in one day with 10 guys. No way.
