    i have put so far 11 hours into a maintenence job. It included weeding flower beds, shrub trimming and clearing a creek bank that is i would say about 100 yards long. I still have probably 2 or 3 hours left on this job. there has been me and usually 1 other worker helping me. i hope this is enough information for you to figure out what i should charge. i usually just do lawn maintenence so i am kinda having a hard time about the price i need to give the guy. thanks

    Sounds like 28 hours times your labor rate.

    Depends where you are, at least 35, if you can get up to 60 then I sure as he!! would do it.
