    hi folks, well im thinking that 50 bucks an hour for my labor and travel to and from the agg and paver supplier is a a good place to start pricing wise. ive got most of my own equipment,
    i will rent a compactor at customers expense any rental will be at customers expense.
    i just want to do an occasional sidewalk or patio.
    is 400 bucks a day good wage for hardscaping?

    In michigan for a guy starting out with almost no overhead i'd say its a okay wage. You still will not put 400 bucks a day into your pocket.
