    This year I had to lower my per man hour rate from 45 to 37.50. So
    337.50. I had a lot of complaints about the higher rates but I charge 5 per green barrel full for disposal.

    90.00 for a 2 man crew. So yes, 405.00 like M RASCOE & SONS said.
    Plus dump fee.

    4.5 hours of hand-weeding. Brutal. Don't be surprised if your helper no-shows tomorrow and decides McDonald's would be a great place to work, lol.

    You may be doubly popular when you hit the customer with a $450 "surprise" for pulling weeds, many of which will be back later when the roots you missed grow back, and you'll probably wind up doing for free then (nobody gets them all)

    How about this route? Time is money, for this kind of bucks you might have been able to spray em, mow down the remnants with a trimmer, and have enough left over for fresh mulch.

    I would have charges $270 for that amount of time. But I know my guys could probably do it faster. That's shy I like to give a flat rate so if we hustle we make more money.
