Well after footing most of my turf my neighbour called to the gate, asking what I charged to do it, per hopper?

No clue what to say, must be 2 hours in footing a hopper I'd think?

He of course would know the going rate himself  

I was clueless as what to charge, what's reasonable.

Anyone know?

The going rate for that sort of work around here is 10 euro per hour.

Thank's Blowin, I'm thinking I'll say 20 a hopper, and hope he then goes to someone cheaper !

Not that keen, but he is my neighbour.
