    my company does 325 residential lawns per week. I have one, 3-man crew and one 4-man crew. each crew has 3 mowers. On a week with now problems(which everyone here knows is rare) they finish tues-fri. All accounts are close, within a 7 mile radius. Planning a good route is the key!

    Hey Mike, Thanks for the input. Wow, you got 325 accounts in a 7 mile radius, good for you! And I agree planning a good route is key. Just wondering, how many hours per day do your guys work?

    Look at it from a different perspective. We look for about $70K per employee. The fewer accounts you can do that with the better.
