I dug a trench for a customer yesterday, approx 40 metres long, 18"
deep, and a spades width.
This bloke is loaded, but tight with it, so I'd like a rough idea of the
usual cost for such a trench being dug - it had to be done by hand, as
there is no access for digging machinery.
I was going to charge my usual rate of £15/hour, so around £60 - 75 -
does that seem too cheap? I think it is too cheap, as I could hardly
stand after moving so much soil!
