What was your guess before you read the count? Also do you think this is accurate? Should it be higher or lower?

Darien entrepreneur aims to keep county green (http://www.fairfieldcbj.com/archive/090406/0904060003.php) - While he said there are no statistics on owner-operated lawn-care businesses versus franchises, of the 325,000 lawn-care companies in the U.S., only a 100,000 have revenues of more than $250,000 a year, suggesting there are many small operations like Connecticut Green.

I would bet there are more than a million in the US alone, doing at least $10,000 annually.
