How do you guys do it ?

I plan to start advertising this week so im getting paperwork ready, i wanted to know how you guys handle quotes/estimates on paper. Meaning what is your process ? If you can please provide a example ?

I was thinking about doing the following,

1. Providing a Estimate Sheet (with estimates/contracted prices) (when they call for a estimate)
2. Providing a Job Agreement (prior to doing any type of planting,etc were i have to go buy the shrubs, etc etc i wouldnt use this for mowing one-time or anything just for jobs i would need to purchase supplies for)
3 Providing a Mowing Agreement (if they want to contract me)

I think it may be to much paper work but i just wanted to see what you other guys work with, i was thinking of not using the Job Agreement but i got to thinking what if i tell them i will come the next day and start the work and then that same afternoon i go buy there flowers,shrubs,etc and then i get home and they tell me they want to withdraw the previous verbal agreement.

I thing you could do is add a couple paragraphs at bottom of estimate page. Detailing what you will need to start the job and such. that way when you both sign it it will become your job agreement. just carry along more than 1 copy, so you get 1 also.
