Poll. Trim Bushes, Hand Edge, Pull out a few shrubs

Taking a poll. Lets say you worked five hours by yourself on one property. You did hand edging, trimmed and cleaned shrubs, and ripped out three small trees and took all the debris away in a trailer. What would be your hourly rate? Here in the north east I charge $40-$45 per hour. Just wanted to see how others would charge. Best of luck in the upcoming season.

$45/hr, including travel time, and time to dump debris. I would probably add $50 for fuel and dump fee.

My break even point right now is 31.00 an hour. I'm trying for 35 an hour, but alot of people here seem pretty cheap. Vancouver is the most expensive city in all of North America.

With my credentials I should be making 70 an hour.

I think that's what I would charge here or a little more for that amount of work and time. I'm in the Midwest and sure its cheaper here to live than New York.

For trimming hedges and bushes I am getting around 350 for a good sized house and about 4-5 hours of work. Everything included.
