    That's a load for 2 crews. How many days does it take to complete each week?

    I'm glad to see I'm not the only one with a significant percentage of biweeklys. I hate them but they tend not to be picky and do pay.

    im right at 21 residential accounts now, and I opened in april of 2011. I have about 6 bi weeklys and 15 every weeks. had I decided to lower my price to what most other landscapers are charging I would have had another 4 maybe 5 weekly accounts, but I chose not to in the spring. next spring im thinking i might get in check with the other guys pricing for lawns, so at least ill have 3-4 days of work.
