    When you send a crew out for the day, what do you expect them to bring in that day. I am talking about a 2 man crew out mowing.

    i try to keep labor at 10% so multiply your labor x 10

    somewhere between $700-950...depending on the route, if there are any new accounts, other variables...etc. Typical day around $800'ish.

    For a two man crew in Houston - that's impressive for just mowing.

    I am a solo operator and I bring in between $350-$450 per day on a full days work before expenses. But you know how that is rain days and down time can kill it.

    On average a two man mowing crew in 8.5 hours $800-850. My labor % is more like 25-30%

    well, they avg 30 lawns a day. Some days in 9 hours, others 11 hours. It all really depends on the route.

    Where in Texas are you??
