This is my third year doing landscaping/lawnmowing, but my first year actually making a business out of it. I'm currently in college and started doing this when I was in high school, and finally this year am making an actual business out of it. I have a few questions in regards to providing services, and several other things. Might be a little long winded, and some questions may seem very elementary, but asking questions is how I learn. Thanks alot ya'll. Alright, I'll try to get down to brass tax. 1.) I have started getting calls for landscaping/lawnmowing services. One call I got recently was wanting spring clean up. Question: What does spring cleanup entail? I mean, what do you do for a spring cleanup job....what does a spring cleanup "cleanup"? 2,) In the past (I've just been the local kid who does landscaping/lawnmowing) when I would give a bid, I would just tell them in person what the price was. I want to put it down on paper now. Question: Does anyone out there have an estimate proposal they could post? (I was assuming a seperate estimate sheet for both landscaping services and a simple lawn mowing bid) 3.) When you guys go to give an estimate, do you give them the estimate right then, or do you take it back and work it out? 4.) Do you ever call a potential customer on Sunday/Saturday, or just wait until Monday? (person called today about work, left a message) Thanks for helping me out everyone. Don't want you guys to think I'm incompetent, I very much know how to do the work, just sort of unsure of the whole business transaction part of it. Thanks again, this site is a competitive advantage in and of itself!
