With all the competition, lower prices for installations and services, it seems that landscaping has become volume based for pricing. Basically send in some college kids, tell them what to do and let them knock it out. Details are left unchecked and the end result might look good, but might also not last a very long time. I run into installs all the time where the base material for walls was short by a couple of inches, no drainage for walls, cheap mortar for brick edging, no pins in the landscape fabric in rock beds and on and on. So is the dedication and quality of landscapes pretty well dead? I personally refuse to drop my prices to compete knowing full well that most of the extra costs in my bids involves the little details that make landscapes last longer with the right maintenance. Any thoughts?
