how-to-price-a-job-as-a-contractor.jpg

All jobs are priced on an individual basis, according to how much waste, if any, there is to be disposed of, whether timber that has been felled needs to be cut into logs and whether I need to employ a groundsman to help me.

As a guide:

  • Basic garden maintenance using domestic strimmers, trimmers and mowers, i.e. without the need for heavy machinery, is charged at £20 per hour.

  • Larger jobs that require ladders, scaffolding and/or ropes that I have to hire or the disposal of large amounts of waste would be on a case by case basis with labour charged at between £30 and £50 per hour.

  • I can quote for a complete job or by the hour.
