    Take in consideration of 1. How big is the yard. 2. how much trimming will be done. 3. How long it will take you,and how long it takes to get to the property. Some charge by the lot size. Some charge by the minute,which i don't like. Also ask yourself how much you would like to make per man hour.:waving: You can also hit the search barat the top middle page. Tons of info. Good luck :)

    So do you charge a rate per hour? If so what if you use several guys?

    No i dont charge a rate per hour. I charge by the size of the lot regardless of how long it will take,and how many guys are on the property. My rate per hour is how much i need to make per man. Or of each man per hour.:)
