I figure I can hire someone at about $10 per hour, to use my tools, to mow, edge, string-trim, and blow, including do fall cleanup blowing and leaf-bagging. I have 2 mowers. I'm not sure what to pay someone if I hire them to also pick up me and my tools, and themselves, and bring us to the job site. I guess I should pay them $10 per hour, plus an additional per-mile fee for use of their truck. No? I'm on Long Island, eastern Suffolk County (Brookhaven Town), New York.
