Estimate or Proposal, which one is right for you?

Estimates and Proposals

Beginning in 2014, there will be a $25.00 fee for all initial visits for estimates and or proposals which is payable at time of scheduling via credit card or Paypal. This fee will be refunded if the appointment is cancelled a minimum of 24 hours before the scheduled time. Appointments rescheduled with at least 24 hours notice will not incur a rescheduling fee.


These are general in nature and do not include specifics such as plant species, material specifications, or exact quantities. You will receive a hand-written or email estimate covering the general details of your job and an estimated total cost. An estimate is NOT a contract to do the work.


These are specific in nature and list the number, size, quantity, and specifics of plants, labor, and other materials to be included in your contracted job. These are as detailed as possible to include all items and costs.  These generally take from 3-5 days to prepare, but can take several weeks for elaborate jobs. The completed proposal will be returned to you  via email or regular mail.  The cost of a proposal varies with the size and scope of the job, and can range from $25.00 to $200.00 or more, and is to be paid for in advance at the initial meeting.


Design fees are in addition to any estimate or proposal fees and are billed at $50.00 per hour of design time. There is a minimum design fee of $50.00 for all design work. Design fees are due upon delivery of the completed design. Demo and preliminary (incomplete) design documents will be watermarked, and remain the sole property of The Green Man Garden & Landscape until paid for in full.
