We are often asked by new lawn care business owners to give them an idea how much money they can make by mowing lawns.  There are many variables to this answer and our standard disclaimer mentions such things as size of equipment, work ethic,  physical abilities,  know-how and many other factors.

Though everybody’s ability to make money with a lawn care business is different, we have put together an entertaining “earnings potential” calculator to help guesstimate how much money a lawn care business owner might be able to earn doing residential mowing jobs in a perfect world.

This lawn care estimating calculator is just for fun but it calculates that if a lawn care operator can do eight $40 lawns each day and can do this 5 days per week, the earnings could amount to $1600 per week.  That’s alot of cake just for mowing lawns.

Of course, expenses such as supplies, taxes, overhead, etc. and downtime must be accounted for.

Have some fun and check out the “lawn care earnings potential” calculator.
