    It depends on what I and/or we are doing. Try being more specific...mowing, mulching, fertilizing, snow plowing, etc.

    $40 per man hour, no matter what. We work fast, we work hard, and usually no one minds paying that price.

    $50 minimum eh? I might be under bidding myself. Oh well. Cant really help it. I have got Mexicans like crazy around here that will work for $10 an hour, I have to remain somewhat competitive.

    you need 4 times what you pay employees to be profitable in most hand labor markets. power equipment adds to that. most 15-25000 equipment should be charged out at $15-30 per hour extra. I would imagine houston is extremely competitive.
