located in Shelby Twp. and Rochester Hills, while the other 35%  is in Troy, Sterling Heights, and Washington Twp. 


Lawn Care

2019-20 lawn care working capacity is approximately 80 "weekly lawn units".  This term "weekly lawn units" attempts to define what the company is capable of in terms of limitations and size of lawn care customer base:


The scale below shows how the 80 "weekly lawn unit" capacity is defined-

1 residential lawn (weekly cut)  of 1/2 acre or less  = 1 lawn unit

1 residential lawn (weekly cut) of of 1/2 to 1 acre = 1.5 lawn units

1 residential lawn (weekly cut) of 1 to 2 acres = 2 lawn units

1 commercial lawn (weekly cut) of 1/2 to 1 acre = 1.5 units (same as residential)

1 commercial lawn (weekly cut) of 1 to 2 acres = 2 units (same as residential) 

1 commercial lawn (weekly cut) of 2 to 3 acres = 3 units

1 residential lawn (bi-weekly cut) = 0.5 lawn units

1 residential lawn (every 10 day cut) = 0.7 lawn units

 Once the "80 lawn unit" limit is reached, the company is overbooked and can not comfortably handle it's workload.


Current customer base as of 2019-20 is approximately 30% commercial and 70% residential.   Largest current job is approximately 3.5-4 acres (commercial).


Snow Removal

2019-2020 snow removal working capacity is approximately 30 snow removal units within 24 hours after snowfall stop.  This term "snow removal units" attempts to describe what the company is capable of in terms of limitations and size of snow removal customer base: 


The scale below shows how the 30 snow removal unit capacity is defined-

1 residential job (plow driveway, blower on walkways) = 1 unit

Small condo complex or business with lot removal area of ~1 acre = 3 units

Small business lot under 2/3rds acre of removal area = 2 units

Large condo complex/business lot/nursing home/hospital with driveway areas exceeding 1 acre = 4+ units

 Once the "30 snow removal unit" limit is reached, the company is overbooked and can not comfortably handle it's workload.


55% of the current snow removal customer base is located in Shelby Twp and Rochester Hills, with the other 45% located in Troy and Sterling Heights.   The 2019-20 split is about 50% commercial, 50% residential

Business Model

The business model is concerned with long-term viability (through 2030).   The business provides local service concentrated primarily within 4 communities - Shelby Twp, Rochester Hills, Troy, and Sterling Heights.   Pricing is based on a win-win mindset, where each individual/stakeholder is happy with the price and quality and likewise, Metro Lawn Care Solutions is able to generate enough revenue to cover costs of labor, equipment, repairs and other operating expenses (gas, insurance, etc.) with reasonable rates.    The company shall remain a mid-size landscaping and snow removal company in the future, which allows me to gain some individual familiarity with each customer I service. - Jeff M.
