25 accounts that were full service and grossed 2k each might be okay while 25 mowing only accounts that gross 1k prolly wont be enough. Concentrate on getting a FULL workload for yourself before you think about hiring help. That extra helper takes your expenses through the roof and until you get alot more accounts you can handle it solo.
