Calculating the labor cost of a landscaping project is an important step in determining the total cost of the job. To do this, you need to multiply the number of hours needed to complete the job by your hourly labor rate. Start by gathering all the information you need to determine how long the work will take. This includes the number of people working, the type of material being used, and the size of the area.
Once you have this information, multiply it by the number of people at work to get the total working hours. Next, add up your labor and material costs, plus your profit margin, and divide by the estimated number of hours it will take to complete the job. This will give you an hourly rate. Finally, add up all the gardening costs listed in the previous steps plus your profit margin to find the price you will quote your customer for their landscaping project.
