I was just wondering if i was under or overcharging people?

Fall clean ups $45.00 an hour
paving stone installation 75.00 an hour
retaining wall installation 80.00 an hour
spring clean ups 30.00 an hour
soil leveling 90.00 an hour lage jobs require skidsteer additional 300.00
bush trimming 60.00 an hour
weeding 50.00 an hour

if i am over/under charging people on a specific job, could you tell me how much the job should be priced

What is your direct overhead?
What is your indirect overhead?
What is your administration overhead?
What profit margin do you want to make?

Answer these 4 questions and you will know what to charge.

pavers and retaining walls are charged per sq. ft. up here, as for the rest pmlawn has got it. there are a lot of factors to be considered here. Prices are also determined by where you live. Basic economics.
They may be charged to the customer by the sq. ft. but your operating cost are not based on the sq. ft.

ar you shure you know how to build a retaining wall, and when it fails and you get sued, the insurance you dont have is going to help you how...

sorry but your just a kid, why dont you mow some lawns, get some experience, work for a real landscaper when you get older, and try and tackle the bigger projects in the future.....
