    I'm interested to see how much everyone is grossing per hour. I am new to the business and I have zero employees at this time.

    I have been scheduling my customers (all residential) for Tuesdays & Wednesdays. I have a decent route set up for Tuesdays for one man...9 residential lawns.

    I ran my Tuesday route and grossed $47 per hour. This includes drive time. This figure is mis-leading because I did two weed control/fertilization apps that day also. Backing out the two weed control stops, I grossed about $39-$41 per hour.

    I'm interested to see how much others are grossing per hour. If you don't mind disclosing this information, please post your gross $$ per hour and the number of people in your crew (including yourself).

    By the way, does anyone charge extra for swingsets? I'm finding them to be a real drag on my gross $$ per hour.

    Thanks,
    DFW, TX
