What percent do you retain when you sub work out?

Does it vary according to the type of work? Residential mowing, commercial mowing, mulch installation, hardscape installs, softscape installs, etc.

On mowing, aeration, ferts I keep $5 per job and landscape I keep 10%.

I am assuming you would retain 10% on larger commercial mowing ($100.00 to $500.00 per cut)?

Does anyone charge more than 10%?

Normally I charge 10%. Sometimes I will charge 5% or even none to get a larger job where I will be doing a lot of the work and I know that the competition will be tight to get the job.
