I have a house that needs the beds cleaned of some leaves, the rest of the leaves in the yard, four shrubs that are about 3ft in diameter and 2ft tall and another shrub that is 4ft high by 3ft in diameter. There is only about 1yd of mulch here. I figure it will take me by myself about 2-3 hours to do. what would be the best way to price this?

Price it by the hour maybe 35 or 40 an hr.

I'd shoot for $60.00 hr. + materials

60 is the hourly rate of a company with a bigger overhang you will not get the job at that price. 40 an hr should be fine for you + material like gas and misc things. at like 60 bucks to your final total

No, actually not much overhang for me and my equipt. if they can't pay 60 hr
for my services + materials, I don't want it anyway...

Thumbs Up $60 is a good rate.

Not for this area. You will have a hard time finding work. You have to have a lot of equipment to make that around here. It's more like $40/man hour around here. I am about a half hour from Milwaukee. He could probably get that $60/hour figure in his area though. So, I would figure around $200 for labor.

Do you charge by an hrly rate per person.. like $35/person so if you have like a 3 man crew you will be charging $105/hr? Right this is how ive been doing it just want to see how many other people are doing the same
