Without my going into a long explanation: It is called "qualifying" the client.
A good salesperson will determine ahead the client's wants, needs, and amount they are likely to spend.There are ways to get them to commit to a budget without merely asking them.
As for your landscape designs, I assume you changed the "scope" of the design not the "quality" of the plants and materials. Or am I wrong?
