I have heard that instead of paying hourly some landscaping company's charge their labor per yard they do. Just wondering if it were true and how it would work?

I think in the past we talked about incentives to get employees to work faster, but with speed they also may do shoddy work.

Is there a way you can time how long it takes to do the lawns the right way and then you would have a good way to compare to how long it is taking the crew?

Yea I require all the crews to have a route sheet in the trucks with them. And on the route sheets they fill in when they pull up to the house and they right down when everything is done and they are pullin away from the house.
