I just ordered this book from Amazon (Landscape Estimating Methods (Means Landscape Estimating)"
Sylvia Hollman Fee; Hardcover. does anyone here use any type of estimating book? In the construction business, we always use estimating books, then have a standard multiplier we use when figuring a job. Does anyone on here do something similar?:usflag:

I was going to order it too because it seemed like it was impossible to get a straight answer as far as estimating goes. BUUUUUUT...

then I read the lone review for this particular book on Amazon and I decided that I was better off just doing a search on here and writing down some of the estimating methods that seemed suitable for the types of work that I am looking to do.

I found one on e-bay, really cheap, (There is probably an underlying reason why it is so cheap, I'll find out)
