    I am a solo op and use a pull behind tine dethatcher for that sort of job. Then it gets bagged with the ztr.

    As a solo I generally charge $40 per hour plus any fees you have to pay for disposal.

    Every part of the country is different with the labor rates so you should just charge whatever you normally charge per hour for labor.

    I try to keep things in check for a regular mowing customer then they will spread the word about the great work you do.

    Hope this helps, good luck.
