$24.00 Per Hour Can Be A Good Starting Point

… more on how complex hourly rates can be.

 

Dutch hoe and rake out weeds - unskilled labour and cheap tools so a lower rate is fair.

 

Set up a ladder or climb and prune trees with chain saw or pole saw and hard hat and deal with the resultant mess should cost considerably more.

 

Mixed jobs with a little of lots of tasks pick an average.

 

Don't forget all the other costs, transport, maintenance, business expenses, tax, insurance.......

I remember what I'd forgotten but can't remember why I needed to

another example

 

I might quote $240 plus dump green waste fees to fell a dead tree and remove from the site.

 

On a quote with many other tasks I might allow $150 for it when I'm working out the quote.
