I cut a lot of lawns. Sir. That’s absolutely my customer base also. 8000-15000 sq/ft properties. I maxed at 147ish a week from mid July to 2nd week in September solo. Lay those bums off brother.My 4 man crew averages right at 150 lawns a week when we are in full part of the season largest is around half an acre, most in the quarter to third (not turf sq ft but whole lot footprint). We do areas where it may take a 30 min drive to get to area A, then we do a handful or two there, then maybe a 20 min drive to get to area B etc etc. 36 stander, 34 zero and a couple 21s when needed. Around 2/3s are every other week (roll eyes), the rest weekly.
I like what you’re saying. However volume is a critical factor. As you increase price on people tge bell curve starts its descent. Because; although you do great work cutting lawns let’s face it an idiot can cut lawns. So they will see that 160$ bill per month and someone struggling to pay bills comes in at 30$ /cut. You’re gone. So how do we make more money strictly cutting yards? Condensing runs is a big pay cut initially for those of you traveling. But eddm accomplishes new yards in a fairly quick fashion. Second part of this is trimming. So as we read mowers are good for 14mph. Truth of the matter is usually 8mph leaves a good cut. Judging from my sticks about 3/4s gap between steel and my sticks (652r). That means that the mower has constraints and a fixed production speed. Therefore trimming, trimming route, truck setup, and blow job haha are the money makers. I’m strictly talking mowing. Adding people coupled with workman’s comp insurance if you’re legit will show a greater gross but not the same man hour pay when looking at bottom line figures.I hate this old question. It’s not how many you can mow - it’s how much $ can you make per man hour. I’m always pushing to improve my hourly $ income - that’s the important # regardless of how many lawns.
