What is the typical range to pay someone for general yardwork such as mowing, trimming, etc.?

I own the equipment, so I am asking for only a labor rate to pay.

Depends on where you are. Where I live, in Vermont, $12-15, where my mom lives in Corpus Christi, TX, it's more like $7-10.

It depends on whether you get an adult or a teen to do it. For someone who does landscaping chores as a side job, I paid 10.00 an hour about two years ago. But I could have gotten a teen to do it for 5.00-7.00 and hr. Professional Landscapers charge much more.

Normally when I furnish equipment to do "Things", i.e. paint, mow, etc. I pay an hourly rate. Cash in hand. Most times $8 but when it hard work $10. I usually provide some cold drinks and maybe a Lunch. Depends on what going on.

Day laborers usually make about $10 an hour. Maybe a little more if it's skill work (like tile setting).
