Default JUST GOT 20 houses!

Hi,

Ever heard of Scotts Yard? Well they make miracle grow. So I was outside roller blading when I saw 2 guys walking around door to door. As I was approaching them I was ready to tell them to get lost because this was my neighborhood. Well insted of that they were treating weeds and other stuff. So we got around to talking and they both offered to give my business cards to EVERY house they go to. Long story short I just got 20 houses in ONE day.

its gunna be really hard to try to fit them all in. But I could do 2 every day after school, and 5 on sat and sun. If I do it every other week I should be good. And no I don't have any software. I don't think I should be hiring anyone yet because i'm only 15 and don't want to get into any legal stuff yet.

So three of my houses want me to put mulch on the flower beds. I would need about 20 bags of red mulch for every house. That would cost me 86.65 dollars for every 20 bags. I was wondering how much should I charge for labor?

How long would each job take you and what would the total amount of hours be?

What is your hourly labor charge?

Take those two and multiply them together.

Keep us posted on that.
