One off basic gardening - how much to pay?

Due to lack of time at the moment, parts of our garden have become overrun with weeds, plants need cutting back, some strimming etc. There’s nothing that requires any skill beyond basic motor skills. We have any/all equipment reasonably needed. I reckon there’s a good hard day’s work worth.

A work colleague/friend mentioned to me this morning that his son is looking for some work before he goes to the military. Light bulb moment. The question is how much to pay him. I don’t want to be insulting and I don’t want to overpay and I certainly don’t want to pay the charge out rate of a gardening company. I feel like both parties should be able to walk away satisfied.

Any thoughts?
