    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...

    I'm out of touch on what you should be paying for millage but your hourly rate seems way to low.

    I would say at least $15hr. depends on what part of Va I guess.
