Labor: depends on how physical intensive $60-$125hr
Materials: product + 15%-20% markup.

For mowing i used to go by the while $1/min. But i realized i was leaving alot of money on the table. Ive raised my mowing minimum to $45/cut for this season.

So far this week i was atleast $200 higher on two landscape cleanup bids three other companies, but i got both jobs due to the quality of my other work and one lady liked my personality. She said i straight forward and didnt try to BS her.

Okay, I was charging a little less per hour. I'm doing a bid now for a customer now. So is the $60-$125 per man hour or that's just straight by the hour?
