    Just wondering if this portion of the site was strictly about commercial landscaping, or if residential landscaping is discussed as well.

    I only do residential landscaping...find it's easier to sell quality over price, easier to get work from referalls etc...

    Do you have your own landscaping businesses? Do you do the design work yourselves?

    I do only residential landscaping. It just works out that way. I get business from my existing lawn business which is also primarily residential.

    Most of our landscaping is residential installs or renovations. We also do some commercial work, but the residential market is our main target. Especially new home installs.

    Hey neighbor how ya doing up there in Bloomington?

    We do both commerical and residental, but also try to do more residental. As others have said commerical just wants it cheap. Although, they are less picky then homeowners..lol We also do all of our designs in house if need be. Most of the residental jobs unless it is the entire job don't justify the added cost.

    We do much more residential however high end commercial properties are the most proffitable. Once a company is convinced that landscaping is a good investment they can spend alot more than most home owners.
