I bill my guys at $35.00 per hour in two or three man crews to cover the truck. I am pushing this more toward $40.00.

I would like to get more but I don't think the market will bear it in Texas but that is Texas.

I have a guy on my crew from MD and he made $18.00 per hour. I can only pay him 11. He is happy to have it because he was making 8 with another Texas company.

Our labor rate

Our labor rate is $38.00 per man hour. We do not have anyone that say anything, and all work other then mowing and mulching is done hourly. I am thinking of making our commercial labor rate $39.50 per hour, and our residential rate $45.00 per hour. Was wondering if anyone had any comments on this topic. We already are charging $42.00 per man hour for snow removal. Any comments would be greatly appreciated.

I couldn't keep the lights on at 30 bucks an hour. My foremen run me $25 an hour alone and $21 for help.

It's going to depend on the area. With the prices around me, I would only work for $30 an hour if there was a bad droubt and this was the nly money I could get. I'm charging $40-$45 an hour depending on the job. Next year, that rate will be going up!

Do you have any pics of what 800 man hrs of work looks like? That = 5 months of work for one person plus overhead.
