    A good topic but one that will be hard for some people to believe. BELIEVE IT OR NOT my son and I did 35 properties working from 6am to 545pm. We did 3 commercial properties from 6am till 730am then started on residentials yards. Mostly 75' x 150' from 730 am till quitting at 545pm. We did this on a Thursday as we needed to be gone Friday and Saturday for a family function.

    When I had my business in So California I did 22 in one day, all small and I averaged 12 per day. here in Alabama the standard of living is way higher and the yards are big, I average now 2 yards, I did 4 one time over summer because of all the rain and I thought I was gonna die.

    42 with a 3-man crew this summer, sizes from zero lots to about 1/3 acre and everywhere in between. I think it was 10 1/2 hrs on the clock. We kept the route tight... We had about 12 zero lots in one subdivision that day which helped us hit those numbers, a few were on the same street.

    Sure! I bet it has more to do with getting old. :laugh::laugh::laugh: (I'm in the same boat)

    I've done 21 2 guys 8 hours. .25-.75 acre. Most yards here range from 1-10 acres but I just hit small yards to see how many we could slam out in one day
