SG Grass Cut vendors

How many are grass cut vendors for SG, I currently do PP for them and they asked me to help out with GC for my area, 100 yards, I debating weather or not to try it out. I would have to hire more help and equipment to handle an additional 100 yrds.

At first I was not interested until they upted the base pay on the cuts. How many yards can youir crews do in a days time.

How many depends on may factors...

How far apart are they?
How big are they?
How motivated are the workers?
What type of equipment? Walk behinds vs commercial riding ZTRs will make a big difference.

I usually shoot for about 12 per day as an average. Some days I get 8 and some days I get 18.

We usually average 20-25 yards a day except for one day which consist of the larger yards and the bid approval yards. We only do 7 that day. It's me and a helper using two commercial zero turns. I take pictures while he trims and edges.

I expect 1 crew to cut at least 15 per day. You just need the equipment to handle that. We run Kubota ztr mowers.

What about the 57 photos they want at each property.
The pictures take longer than the work.

Twelve per day average. We do 30-35 photos per cut as we do with any customer.

I do 13-15 solo and 12-25 with a helper. A lot depends on location of properties between each other and traffic. Most of the time I avg. 2.5-3 cuts per hours ztr
Mowers will allow quicker cutting times.
