    How many lawns are you mowing on average a day? This is for people who mow small/medium lawns.

    Also, do you have a helper? Does he/she make it that much quicker?

    Depends on the time of year. I'm a solo guy. Last wed grass was kind of burnt. I did 21 1/4-1 acre lawns by myself w/ great dane stander in 8.5 hrs. Can't say I did all the trimming and edging though. Thursday was about 14 lawns, mostly 1 acre+. In the springtime wednesday would have been 18 lawns almost fully serviced in 11 hrs

    It's not about how many, it's about how much (in sqf or in acres)

    I charge by the lawn not the sq ft. payup

    Funny thing all the people who are cutting 30+ lawns a day are too busy to be here researching stuff nor imo do they need the wonderful help that this site offers i for one hope that someday i am too busy to be able to come and research on this site. :p

    Like others have said, it's square footage or acreage. I have one day where I can cut about 32 in a day. (very tight route where I have 6-10 in a row) And another day where I can only cut 8. Solo.

    On the kind of lawns you described, my crew can do one of those every 16 minutes. This is a 3 man crew with 21" pushmowers. It takes a little while to get fast and to get the routine down.

    Oh yeah, that 16 minutes includes drive time and we average about 25 per day.

    I can average 8-10 a day solo. Some days more some less.
    With a helper I can get 15 done.

    My record for my 4-man crew is 51 lawns in one day. That's 51 quarter-acre sized (on average). We have a very tight route though....and my guys are workhorses. Quite honestly it was a long day but we could have cut more.

    My record for a 3 man crew is 47. May sound impossible but its true.
