We do strictly landscape management work, ie: lawn maintenance, mulch, small landscape projects and ect. Recently, I have received calls about hardscapes and patios, so I scheduled appts with the home owners to see what they were looking at installing. One customer about 2200sq.ft of stone work, retaining walls, outdoor kitchen. way out of my league to do this, so I contacted the stone supplier to get a list of installers. I meet this guy at the job site, he did his thing about the stone work and gave an estimate of 28k. The customer commited to the price. The installer said he would take care of my time, since I sifted the wheat on this job! He offered me 200.00, which is an insult, since he also rooted me out of installing some plantings and 125 bales of pine straw. I have received 2 more calls this week about this type of work. So my question is, what should I charge this guy for the referal? 5%, 10%? Really need help on this, I pay alot for our ads, plus I'm feeling the customer out! Maybe something like 0-10k, 350 fee anything over the 10 k add a additional 2.5% per thousand to the 350. Help me, I want to be fair!
