    We completed a job for

    1600 SQ feet of sod
    Thick Bender Board
    Lighting Install
    Sprinker system install
    Bark in the front and back


    The material are already covered so this is just for the manual labor.. we are in Northern Ca.. any ideas what should be charged?

    One dollar should cover all necessary labor.

    What do you mean by one dollar?

    Basically I am looking for manual labor rates.

    How much per hour or per job is it for sod installation?
    What about laying bark? etc.

    How much is the manual labor rate worth?

    Just charge what your lawyer charges per hour.

    D Felix, HAHAHAHAHA! So bud, you're meaning you did professional quality work in all those areas and you don't know how to price it? I'd love to see pictures of that sprinkler system you "put together." You used glue and primer, right? :-D
