    Hey guys and gals. I have been reading a book called Green Side Up, in it they talk about putting together an estimating matrix or form. It sounds great but I have questions on how to do it or where to start. Has anyone implement one or have any ideas. Thanks

    Sure, mine is run in excel. It has my hours, labor rate, price of plants from my local nursery, markup, fert+pest stuff, you name it. It really streamlines your estimating process. It's not diificult if you've done spreadsheet work beore. It's mostly autosum from different cells and fields. I think you can buy them as well.

    you need to have 10 posts (which you do) and be a member for 10 days before you can pm
