Well this is the 2nd time this month that ive had a customer state that they have another company comming in X# of days to give them a price for "minor" landscaping or plant installation, were talking 3k$ work here or less. If they told what they want, where at and asked how much, id just give them a price quote. BUT they have NO IDEA what they want. One woman wants some stone or block around the garden area in front of the house along with plants in the back around a jacuzzi thats UNDER her back deck? i mean its shade 80% of the day back here. She has no idea what type of plants she wants. Whos to say my bid for the job at 1k is good for selling her mums VS the other guys quote or if i price out $400 trees and the other guy quotes to plant mums for $1000 for the job? lol.
