Crew size productivity versus sole operator we determine by manhours. We price a place then after about a month of one person doing the lot (can be 2 to 4 times) you get your man hour rate. Jump up to 2 guys and do the same thing (1 month of lawns). After a month, average out your 2 man crew times and multiply it by 2 (because you doubled the men working) and see how close your 2 man crew time equated into a single operator figure compares to your true sole operator man hour figure. That will be able to tell you if and how much your jumping up to 2 operators is saving you (if any). As far as pricing your lawns to cost we have broken down (roughly, but close enough to make the government happy and still put some coin in the pocket) the cost per minute. 15 years ago cost was $1/min, (Readers Digest version follows) breaking it down into sections of taxes, insurance, repairs, fuel, etc. If you are coming up short in any of those areas then you need to increase your cost. Roughly $2 per lawn after taxes etc was one example I figured for a 25 minute lawn priced at $25. Hope this helps.
