When I get people to help me out like this I like to negociate a per hour rate so nobody feels ripped off. If it takes 1/2 an hour to water your yard there’s 7 hours for 2 weeks. Present it like that and offer them an hourly rate that you’re comfortable with. I usually pay $12 an hour for yard work. For a kid maybe you pay less so they don’t get spoiled.
