- have a general idea of what you want to have done
- can provide some basic information such as the rough size of the area
- have some digital photos of the areas which you want landscaped.
For example: if you want a privacy hedge planted along the back of your property, and you know the length you want to cover, and the height you would like the hedge to be at time of planting, then an estimate would be a good starting point. Another example would be for replacing an area of dead turf grass along a newly installed driveway, if you have a rough measurement of the area to be sodded, then an estimate will tell you about how much replacing the grass will cost.
Please understand these are estimates and will not be accurate or detailed, and are in no way a binding legal contract.
If you have more extensive or elaborate landscaping needs, and would like a more detailed Proposal to better define the costs of your landscaping, then an on-site visit and evaluation will be required. This on-site visit and evaluation provides us with necessary information about the particulars of your site, such as soil type, light and shade patterns, existing plants and materials, condition of irrigation system, etc… Having this knowledge in hand allows us to create an accurate proposal for performing the work. This proposal will include an itemized list of all work to be done, all materials to be installed, and will include a line-item cost breakdown.
The cost of the on-site visit, with accompanying itemized Proposal is $50.00 which covers travel time and expenses, time spent on-site, and time spent locating and pricing your job in an accurate, cost-effective manner. If you hire The Green Man do the work as detailed in the proposal, we’ll apply 50% of the proposal fee as a $25.00 credit on your bill.
