Ok, so I'm looking to hire a fulltime certified horticulturist, with there own truck. They would drive around as a one man team doing small gardening tasks, planting some bushes, pruning, general gardening... He would have my equipment with him in his truck. Blower/weedeater/rake/bags/pruning stuff/ gasoline.

I'm thinking 12.50 per hour plus his mileage...37.5 cents/mile,
an average work week consisting of 250 miles.

Anyone think this sounds right?

Should he be paid differently because he uses his vehicle?

Just wonderin...
