I'm just starting out, and need to know how to make accurate estimates.

A landscaper I respect tells the homeowner he'll cut the property once for a certain rate/price. Then he'll give an estimate for the customer to consider.

Other landscapers say they give free estimates.

I'm leaning toward the first because it seems otherwise my estimates will be a shot in the dark until I gain experience.

Any ideas?

the first idea might work but, you still are guessing what the price might be. the best thing to do is compare the new yards with yards you've already done. what everyone says on here, if you get all the jobs then your bid is too low and if you don't get any then youre bidding to high... remember, practice makes perfect.
