When you do an estimate how much do you estimate for your own labor an hour after expenses?
At least $30 per man hr. Could proubly be a little higher. Thats seems to be about the going rate in my area.
One man? And that's you?
If you're starving, less. If you're crazy busy, which you will be before you know it, more. And more. And more.
id go at least $50 you dont know how hard that work is until you start in to it
I am pulling about $60 for me and my partner total and we are making out like bandits, I love this time of year
i pull 50 per hour.. one man.. minimal overhead.. when it's all said and done, i make about 30 an hour
I am not trying to start anything here, but how do you pull $50/hr, but only make $30/hr? If $30/hr is all you are making why bother with landscaping. I would just mow. I will make between $50-165/hr mowing before expenses. Depending on lot size, how close the homes are. and so forth. I have 5 lawns that are right next to each other that I can mow in an hour.
I did my first job last weekend. I made 35 an hour after expenses. I set my price a little low due to my lack of experience. I ended up doing a great job according to the homeowners so now I will try to make 40 an hour after expenses for landscaping and increase as much as I can as I get more experienced until I find my peak price, mowing is a different story.
all 3 of us make 45 an hour
me myself and i (when he shows up)
$50 and hour and up, all depends on how hard the job is going to be is how I charge my time. Harder job costs more cause time is money
