    For all you guys out there that work by yourself, how many possible mowings do you think you can get done in a week? Including trimming and blowing off of clippings. I know having a tight route helps of course as does smaller lawns, but on average.
    15 a day might be my limit.

    15 per week?

    I have 90 accounts weekly. Nice tight routes. A lot of multiples at one stop. The beginning of my week starts with 23 on Mondays,mostly 5000 sf or less. The end of the week I move out to bigger accounts.

    Ideally I would like one lawn that is 325 acres. That would be one nice 40 hr. week for my wife and I.

    13 residential/3 large commercial by myself. The van and all gear was gassed up and I didn't stop for bodily functions until It was over.

    Total time was 16 hours.

    My body still aches remembering that day :(
