    How big of a garden? How big of a tiller? A 6' tiller behind a farm tractor would run a little higher than a walk-behind 3.5 horsepower unit.

    $120-$160 for a walk behind tiller

    I would call the rental places and find out how much the rental is on a tiller.

    Then I would add my hourly rate in there and add tiller rental(because you will have to replace it someday, and you need to make the bux to do that payup ), 45.00 hr to till and 65.00 for use of tiller comes out to 175.00 to do the job...
