Théière Posted August 2, 2010 Share Posted August 2, 2010 [quote user="steve"]Me again - a lot depends on the type of kit the gardener uses. If for example you have 3000 sq m to cut, Matey with a brico machine turns up and charges 18€ an hour, but takes 3 hours to cut it them thats 54€. If I turn up and charge 25-30€ an hour but take 1 hour to do the same job then my hourly rate sounds expensive but works out nearly half price! Hence we quote per job nowadays. There are people who charge 15€/hr doing what we do, but we know they wont be about in a year or two as they cant make a living at that. WHat you need is someone you can trust to do the job without taking the pees and you can rely on.Steve[/quote]So so true Steve, considering you would probably only get £6.50-£7.50 an hour in the UK it does come as a bit of a shock to most. It sounds like you make a lot of money but with the social charges and tax I really don't know how business's run but the constant closing of business's is sure the system is a tough one.
