Need a little help with pricing

I own a newer company and was recently contacted to do a major landscape overhaul. I don't want to rip off the homeowner but I don't want to rip myself off either. Just curious what is the going hourly rate for Northern Indiana/ Lower Southwest Michigan. Thanks for an help you can offer.

I used to live in Lansing, Mi up until last year, and always charged $30/hour for general labor

What's the name of your company? How were you contracted for the job without giving an estimate?
