    12+14 = 26 feet
    20+30 = 50 feet

    Take length, multiply by the root of the width squared minus the width of your shovel cubed and subtract your shoe size and average walking pace.

    But don't lowball like grandview.....min $12

    I charge about $50 /hr for shoveling. I really fly and use blowers when it saves time.
    Sometimes a walkway will take 2 minutes other times 10 minutes. Total gas and drive time can be averaged out for all customers to one price.
