I know...everybody hates these questions. My company does almost all landscaping jobs...no maintenance. I went full-time the end of last year, and was working 55 hour weeks, and had no employees. It really sucked. When I was doing estimates, nobody was working, when I forgot a plant nobody was working. It seems to me its almost a necessity for a landscaper to have at least one guy helping him. I did have friends helping out when they could on nights and weekends. This year I am going to hire one full-time person, maybe another if work demands it. So I was thinking, what size do I want my company...how big do I want it? I was thinking one crew 3 guys, and me helping whenever I am not running around doing business. Maybe a half day work. What kind of numbers can I expect from 3 guys working with me there only half a day? Does anyone have a company similiar to this? Would I be more profitable with only 2 guys and me half a day? I am by no means out to make a huge company, I just want to be big enough to where I can be out there when I want, and I could be doing paper work when I want. And I want to net around 50,000. Is this attainable, will I have to go bigger to net 50,000?
