I am SO GLAD I found this forum. Thou I hope I'm posting in correct place. I specialize in finish grading and sod. This year is my sixth season. Last year I added hardscape and landscape. Not that I wanted to but my work comes from new home construction and the builders would say they wnated this done ect. So WHY NOT I said. My main trouble is I am under estimating cost and time on job. When I think I bidded correctly my labor cost is so far off. I almost wished I didn't start landscape part and stayed with grading and sod. Then also do you offer FREE landscape designs?? They sure take a lot of time to do. I have a CAD drawing program ( dynascape) I draw up the lot size with house on it then my wife adds all the plants. I would say we have 5-6 hours in each one. So we end up in our basement working until 2 or 3 in the morning. I NEED SOME ADVICE.......... spring is near.
