    How many mows(just mowing)did you guys do last season? We did 2055. One crew. The reason I ask is that I think I need to reduce number of mows for more profitable work ie. installs,apps.,airation,overseeding ect. I refered a lot of work last season.

    or add on more equipment and workers. Why stop cutting if it is profitable.

    Mowing is the least profitable of any service I offer with the highest equipment and labor cost.

    last year I did 85 or so- just picked up 31 more yards from fellow lawncare buddy getting out of bus. I'll probably hit 130 this year with me and 2 employees.

    Russ- how are you cutting 2055 lawns in a week with one crew? Are they appartment complexes or trailer parks. I'm going to be swamped with 130

    uh, probably not in a week, the whole season is more likely what he means.
