My question is what is to big for one guy and how big is to big? I've been doing landscape matinence for seven years now and now this year decided its time to make my own money. I have 30 full time mowings plus 6 every other weekers. so i average 33 mowings a week plus some vacation cuts for my one time spring cleanups. I also get the side work at all of my accounts. I mow 3 day a week with a 60" exmark lazer and a 36" exmark metro walk behind. I think thats as big as I can get this year but I got a call from a new buddy in the business and he said he's getting out of the biz and will "GIVE" me 10 accounts aug 1st and 15 mor by the end of the year as he gets out slowly. I'm going to go and look at the 10 accounts and his equipment on sat. I'm thinking if it works out i need a employee at least 30 hours a week to support the extra work. Am I crazy for expanding or should I go for all of it and invest in more business?
