    I am semi-retired and this is my first full-time year in providing a lawn care service. I know how much I will be receiving each week and was wondering if any of you "older" pros out there have a labor cost ratio to receipts figured in with your yearly forcast for net profits. What percentage of gross receipts should I be paying out for labor for a small grass cutting buisness? I am running an exmark 52"lc ztr and a 36" exmark w.b., 16' converted new stock trailer and 75% of my other equipment is Echo. All equipment is paid for except the ztr. I really enjoy reading your threads and look forward in participating in your forum.
