    Hey Krayz, what's your rate per hour for landscaping? Or do you charge by the hour?

    I usually price landscape work by job.
    For example: landscape cleanup
    Weeding of beds, trimming of shrubs, re-edging of bed, app of pre-m, mulch.

    I always over price by a lil for those just in case situations.
    Labor: depends on how physical intensive $60-$125hr
    Materials: product + 15%-20% markup.

    For mowing i used to go by the while $1/min. But i realized i was leaving alot of money on the table. Ive raised my mowing minimum to $45/cut for this season.

    So far this week i was atleast $200 higher on two landscape cleanup bids three other companies, but i got both jobs due to the quality of my other work and one lady liked my personality. She said i straight forward and didnt try to BS her.

    I learned most of my basic gardening knowledge from my mom. She always had the best looking flowers beds on the block when we were younger. She always taught me to take risk and i listened to her. Now i have a very nicely growing landscape company.

    Okay, I was charging a little less per hour. I'm doing a bid now for a customer now. So is the $60-$125 per man hour or that's just straight by the hour?

    Straight by the hour. You need to invest some of your time into cleaning up your accounting books
