I am in need of some labor for yard work

I recently damaged my leg and now cannot do some of the digging in my yard.

This project is digging a 22 (approximately) foot long trench about 2ft deep that we will lay down a little gravel, a French drain pipe, then some more gravel and then backfill some of the dirt.... With the bushes and wall, a trencher or excavator will not realistically be able to get in so its a manual dig.

The soil is not crazy hard packed – its been moved/disturbed over the past 5 years and typically is a little damp (Which is why I am doing this project!)

So the ask is for
• somebody to dig this trench and the 2ft by 2ft hole for the sump basin to sit in
o Before starting digging the pine nuggets would need to be raked away so when we have finished we could rake them back over
• One end of the trench will be about 24 inches deep, the end near the sump basin will only be about 8 inches deep
• The majority of the dirt will need to be moved to a different area of the yard (About 150feet away)
• I have a wheelbarrow and a small trailer for my riding lawnmower that could be used


I am not asking for help for the gravel, or the pipe or the backfilling - only the initial digging and the raking of the pine nuggets before digging.

To avoid the heat of the day the person could start early in the morning.

I don’t want to insult anybody by naming a price, and I do want to pay a fair price, 'a man is worth a wage'. So please reply with an estimate what you would charge for this.
Its not urgent, but sometime before June 20th is when I need the work done.

I have attached a picture that attempts to show the project as well.
