I'm a solo guy right now, been in business for 9 months. Hoping to expand in 2013 and at least add one part time or full time employee. What are the current hourly rates to PAY employees in this industry, in this area? Right now I do mowing only, but am adding shrubs, aeration, cleanups, etc. Most likely will also add pesticide applications early in 2013. I want to be competitive with my employee wages so that I get good quality folks right from the start. Any help would me much appreciated.
