I would like to hear some feedback from those out there who have established lawn maintenance and landscaping companies. I havent been in the business long enough but I would like to know if you guys think it is hard for an established business owner with a college degree to make over $150K/yr in this business? I am not talking about the guy running a lawn mower gig out of his garage, but a fully licensed company that has been established for at least 5yrs. I am also referring to the northeast part of the country or any other parts that have a middle class in the $75k-$100k income range. I am looking not so much gross income of the business either. I dont want to hear comments from ppl saying they pay so much in expenses that they make nothing cause I obviously know thats a load to throw at young kids trying to get started. For those out there that make minimal money in this business Im sure it has to do with the direction of your business or your part of the country.
