    This question comes up bout every spring/summer ..... the real way to look at it is almost from an hourly employees perpective ..... they will (or should) almost always ask how much per hour before how many hours

    Example I have 115 accounts .... but .... 1 of my accounts is 127 homes .... I have another account which is 8 jobs (5 shopping centers n 3 homes which are deep in the 6 fiqures$$$ of home value) .... all in all my "115" accounts is 250 properties .... but it's the monthly income which really matters

    About 90 lawn mowing accounts weekly. Mostly 1/4 - 1 acre in size. We do 1 very large strata complex, several smaller ones, accounting offices, misc commercial sites, but mostly residential.

    I think a better question might be ," How many square feet do you cut a week"?

    that is a very good point. Like we have about 1 1/2 dozen 2 acre or larger jobs. Now if we didn't have those we could fit in a bunch more customers.
