Quote per hour or ...quote per job?

Rod from New Freedom Gardening

I often hear of hourly rates in gardening. I know of people who boast they only charge $18-$25 per hour. However, I also know through long experience they take 4 to 5 times longer than experienced guys like me and the reliable contractors I work with. They just do not have the know how or the … View moreI often hear of hourly rates in gardening. I know of people who boast they only charge $18-$25 per hour. However, I also know through long experience they take 4 to 5 times longer than experienced guys like me and the reliable contractors I work with. They just do not have the know how or the tools, or the fitness level. Then of course there is the plant knowledge and landscaping knowledge guys like me bring to the job.

So you as the customer hope the "quote per hour" blokes will finish the job in a morning....but they are still there a couple of days later. Job not finished, the price for you adding up.

Guys like me quote PER JOB, including everything, such as waste removal. Then there are no surprises.

In my photos of my work you will see a number of "before" and "after" pics. That was THE JOB. How long did it take me? You might be very surprised. I do know my customer was, and he was delighted. To be delighted by the work that can be done in your garden that does not take forever for me (or my team) to do, give me a bell. Rod 02102834953. More than a dozen great reviews on Trademe alone speaks for itself.

Saving plants and getting home sale ready

Rod from New Freedom Gardening

It is great not to have to waste plants - a whole heap of agapanthus etc we dug out of this garden went as a donation to fill the front garden of a nearby kindergarten. Bet the kids will wonder where all these came from overnight!
We then filled the areas with black mulch at our customer's … View more
It is great not to have to waste plants - a whole heap of agapanthus etc we dug out of this garden went as a donation to fill the front garden of a nearby kindergarten. Bet the kids will wonder where all these came from overnight!
We then filled the areas with black mulch at our customer's request. Black bark is striking, low maintenance and suppresses weed growth. But it won't keep the weeds back forever.
Best wishes
Rod and Marion
See you next time!
