to charge or not to charge

thanks for you information lawngodfather. you guys on this site do one heck of a job, keep up the good advice.

i use a basic landscaping program, where i take a digital picture of the customer's project and insert different landscaping ideas. this gives the customer a before and after picture to work with. i have been discussing the way to bill a customer with my family & friends. there have been many ideas. some of the ideas were:

1- charge the customer for the design, if they hire you to do the job, then refund the design charge.

2- do the design and if the customer hires you, then add the design charge to their bill.

my idea would be to charge them a normal labor rate to do the design either way, if they hire me to the job or not.

thanks for reading, your opinion would be most welcomed.
