No I just thought it strange, cause I,m averaging about 8 lawns a day, only 4 days a week, with about 65 regulars so I thought how on earth are you doing 10 Every day with only 45 customers :)

 

That's ok mate...No worries.

Tuesdays I cut 9

Wednesday I cut 8

Thursday I cut 11

Fridays I cut 8

then the following week I cut 7 on a Thursday

And Gardening every other day 

 

Ive also been know to exaggerate my wang size....but that's on another Forum :P

 

He just mows lawns, then knocks on the door like the windscreen guy at the traffic lights.
They’re not really customers

I'm really an Asian school girl..I'm just here for hot lawnies .  :P

 Thats a very regimented schedule. Puts mine to shame for sure. I dont think I ever do more than 8 jobs a day. But many are not just lawns..............I wish they were, as I would love to just cut lawns.

 

 

 

There was someone on here a bit ago claiming they do 100 lawns a week.  :blink:

But that's 15 to 20 a day, maybe with a team but on your own thats (near) impossible, even with a ride on.

Yeah but he's only charging $30/hr so his 100 equals about 30-40 for everyone else :)

I do remember someone saying a big number, I asked them if it was a 2 man crew.

 

I do 110 a fortnight,  60 a week works out a easy week I can do that in 4 days 18-12-16-14  and it leave a easy 40 for the next week 3 days,

 

ive done 96 in 5 days exhausted 

 

I did 24 yesterday in 9 1/2 hours

 

And yes im damn motivated I guess I treat myself as a employee and the  boss expects me to work the whole time he is paying me and make him money.

 

But that's 15 to 20 a day, maybe with a team but on your own thats (near) impossible, even with a ride on.

 

average lawn time from last job to packed and finished is 30min, so 8 hours I do 16,   add a few 4 and 3 in a rows and 20 isnt that had.  I have very little travel time a days work is in a 1km radius

 

 

Yeah but he's only charging $30/hr so his 100 equals about 30-40 for everyone else :)

 

dont charge by the hour,  I charge enough to pay me a average wage with super etc and  also make the busness a profit every year and buy the best equipment when needed.
