I am now offering this as a full service. I really like color and am doing everything I can to learn about it. I wish there was a huge book out there on all the annuals and planting ideas. However I have a hang-up and its pricing. I am never really comfortable giving estimates so here is my questions. First: If the ground needs prepping (which I plan to do on almost all of them except the ones that are already taken care of) how and what do you guys do? I figure worst case scenario till in compost and fert? But for most of them I assume just adding some fert while planting will suffice. What type of fert do you guys use when planting begonias, pansies, petunias, etc.? Second: How do I know how many to plan in a desired are? Say it is 10x10 (100sq ft) I want these things tightly packed for impact of the color, how many ? Do you guys just go from experience? Third: I have been trying to read up on pricing and know that many contractors just double the price of the plant, but is that enough. Like in a mag I read does that cover your experience, your planning, fuel to pickup, fert, and replacement if they croak? What do you guys do with this? Last: Do you offer a package? Example: Plant x amount of begonias, mulch, fert, come back to remove weeds monthly, spray for insects, replace dead flowers, come back in two months rip out color and install another color? Thanks allot for the input!
