<b>Hi Ron, Clinton here, Are you talking for landscaping or Maintenance labor rates ?

If for Landscaping rates: $6.50 per hour and Up (average around 10.00 per hour here in Calif.

Maintenance rates around 25.00 to 65.00

My the way on the other post what was your cost on materials ? what you showed was that your cost or the cost to your customer?

Thanks

<b>Hi John, Clinton Here again, I just known here in Califorina We can start Labors out all Day long for $6.50 per hour to work on the Landscape Crews, and the same for Maintenance crews... Sure we may charge $16.00 and up for that man But thats how me make our money...</b>

<b>If I may ask? What do you start a man out at that knows nothing about landscape or maintenance work, but said he is welling to learn....???</b>

Clinton- If my last name was Deere I would pray to God my parents wouldn't name me John. (LOL) My name is Mike. Anyways I see now what your saying about labor rates. That's the rate you are paying employees. When you say labor rates I thought you meant what you are charging for "labor". No, $6.50 sounds exactly right. Plus, your in Cal. and I'm in Nebraska. That alone would say to me right away that there would be some difference, but I start all employees out at $6.50.
