When considering a landscape improvement or enhancement of your property, the typical homeowner is looking for knowledge and expertise, problem solving skills, cost effective solutions, and value for their investment. When meeting for the first time to discuss the landscape project(s), you may or may not have an idea of project cost or budget in mind.
We start by evaluating and measuring your property. Next we provide a “Ball Park” estimate and explore alternative material and cost choices. Once you have an idea of what your budget will allow, we compile a Detailed Cost Estimate. The estimate offers a line item description of the job tasks and services. It also includes, but is not limited to the following:
For this service, we charge an estimate fee of $50.00 which is credited toward the cost of the project, if you choose to use our company to complete the work. While this does not cover but a portion of the time we spend on the estimate, it shows us you are willing to work closely with our team to explore your options and that you value our time, as well as your own. The phrase “you get what you pay for” comes to mind when placing your trust in a verbal estimate or vague “lump sum” price scratched on the back of an envelope.
