Just curious what you pay your top guys. You have caps?
I am my top guy......and I pay him well.
I would address this question to anyone on here in your area. Otherwise it's going to be a big waste of time thread with top pay prices from $10 an hour to $30 an hour. This kind of question is definitely regional.
If you're just looking for numbers out of curiosity, our top guy currently gets $15 an hour. Which this year we will have someone taking my place in the landscape crew and I'm sure we'll offer him closer to $20.
Are you getting back in KS???
yup, Randy hit the nail right on the head. Pay differs big time regional on here. Some people make anywhere from $7 per hour and up. Even here in Michigan, somewhere around here that is making $9 to $10 would be considered good, and if you go down to the detroit area they would be making twice that amount at the type of position
Back in what??
Back into Landscaping/Lawncare. I thought you got out last year.
LB, where are you located in Maine?
I pay my top guy $17.50 salary with OT.
I sold out last year, Then went to work for another landscape co (or 2) after an ATV accident that broke a few things. Worked for about 1 1/2 months and decided to go back into it again. Been back since Nov. Just solo right now.
