    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.

    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

    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.
