Failing healrh and I am trying to do exactly that right now. The pros I have talked to want $50/hour,/man, minimum of two men for 8 hours. Send those boys my way.Last year got a 15-year-old to do my trimming. First time in 31 years.
Lot of what is needed is steep and I just got to the point where I played hell for it for days....
Good kid and did a great job. I paid him ~ $20/hour, but it amounted to $50 per visit as he took about 2 hours.
I (used) to do all trimming in an hour.
He came back for first time this year today.
Asked if he could bring a friend to help.....sure, I have two big Stihl trimmers.
It took the two of them 2 hours to do what I did in one.....so 4 hours cost me $100 @ $50 each.
Granted, they're good young boys, and respective of my equipment. They were here when they said they would be.
I shouldn't be complaining for many reasons. They're both looking to save $$ to buy a car. Both said mom/dad haven't bought cars for their older siblings.
Both did a better job than I did, but geez a 1:4 ratio is stark....
