Call me nosy! I'm just kind of curious to take a poll on how much ANNUAL (NET) income is typical for the average lawn service. Also maybe info about your house/payments if so inclined. Also maybe list how many employees you have, how much you pay, if you plan on staying in the lawn service indefinately, are you able to save money or do you live on the edge...etc... List anything that might shed light on your service/way of life. Here are my stats. * Annual net income -- Apprx $95,000 * I am able to comfortably pay my bills and raise family (3 kids). Wife does not work. House value: about $275,000...payment $2100/month (including taxes) * We save an average of about $1,000-$2000/month 9 months out of the year. Lose a portion of that during the winter months. * # employees (3) pay $10 hr each * I drive an old (paid for) scratched, dented up truck. * To look at me you'd think I probably made $15,000 per year but I probably make more than most of my clients. * mostly residential customers -- 40 per day average * Will I retire in the lawn service? Quite honestly I like my job but it's not particularly gratifying to me anymore, for I seem to be stuck financially. On the other hand I'd be hard-pressed to find anything else that pays this well.
