Employee bonus question

Earth-N-Wood Landscaping has a very interesting system for employee bonuses but I still need a few more details. Like how much bonus to give and not kill your profit margin. Do you or any of the other moderators have any ideas on a system for employees bonuses? If so, can you explain and give details. I am looking to implement a bonus program in hopes that it will increase production and quality.Thanks

I think if you re-title your post "BONUSES" you'd get more responses.

Do you give raises? Do a 3 or 6 month review and make it known that the raises are tied to performance. If they earn it fine but if they don't you need to spell out what is expected of them. Keep them low so you can give them often. Like 20 cents or so.
We give you leisure time.
