    Just wondering what everybody charges for straight labor. Like if someone wants hedge trimming or weed pulling, and says to charge them accordingly...

    Is that different from Gay labor?

    Just kiddin, 40 to 75 per man hour. No weed pulling at all. If I can't chemically destroy them then I aint touchin it.

    Fall cleans are at the higher end of the spectrum and this is not a rate we advertise however we do tell people that hedges and misc light labor are billed at the 40/mh rate Plus tax.

    32.50 here at the minimum. More depending on: equipment needed, how backed up we are, and the pita factor of the job.
