Live in Missouri and have a lady wanting me to do some leaf removal, trim hedges and some other odds and ends. I have been cutting a few years but could use some help how to charge for this type of work. Any info would be great. Thanks

I live in Missouri, too.........about 100 miles south of STL. I charge only $10/hr for labor when no power equipment is used. You could probably charge more than that in Stl. though.

You have to figure your expenses, costs, everything, and then come up with a bottom line you need to make. Do a search....your answers are on this forum.

The company we had last year come and do a spring clean up at our place charged $60 per hour for 2 men, took them 2 hours for a total of $120. Basically, $30 per man/hour. If you are hacking it alone, I would charge $35 or $40 per hour if you can finish in a timely manner. I think you should always try to average a bare minimum of $30/hour for anything you do in this business.
