im only looking to make 500 a week or 2000 a month is my lawn business i am retired from the police force on disabilty. my pension has great benefits but i need a good 400 to 500 a week to stay afloat. how many lawns would i need if i wasnt to work part time. and if i wanted to sub out jobs like mulch and hardscape how does that process work. i have a good truck and 6x12 enclosed trailer and know what equipment to by. what do you guys do in the fall for clean ups as far as pricing goes. i can price lawns pretty good i assume an acre an hour is accurate so im saying 45 dollars? 40 and hr for pruning and like 50 dollars to edge curbs and walks once a month with stick edger?
