Equipment operators wages for lawn care are around 6.50-10.00 per hour around here. I'm thinking of adding a 3rd guy, just to trim and blow, 2 days per week. This is for my 2 days that we drop the deck and do up to 22 lawns in a area, I'm assuming it will speed up things, thus more lawn yet could be done. These 2 days of cutting are probably 99% 1 acre lots, some have alot of trimming. What would you guys pay such a person to trim?
