I have a half acre field (flat) with branches and sticks strewn around it. I also have to split and stack two quarts of wood, and stack three- four quarts already split.Also three average sized beds to rake and mulch.What do you think would be a reasonable price for this job?

What equipment do you have to do the jobs or is it all manual?

I have a JD lawn sweeper that works great for picking up small twigs, branches and rocks, a 1/2 acre would take me about 45 min. To split two cords of wood will take about an hour, depending on the size of the wood and I assume you are talking hardwood and assuming you have access to a splitter another 45 min to stack. Can't comment on the beds as one would need to know the size. Depending on what I am doing and what equipment I am using, I charge anywhere from $60.00 to $100.00 an hour or if I quote a total for a job, I am generally in this range or above.
