One of the first steps you will be taking in your landscaping job will be a thorough estimate. It’s important not just to know how your job will fit your budget, but as a first move towards putting your plans down in black and white. If your plans are too ambitious, you will be the first to find out when the estimate comes in higher than what you can afford.
Not just that, but a meeting for an estimate will give you and your landscaping contractor a good chance to get to know each other. You can get a good feel for the type of person you will be dealing with, and you will know what you can expect out of the job and the final product.
The landscaping estimate session will be a great time to sit down and get some feedback from your landscaping contractor on how workable your design and plans will be. In the process of give-and-take, you will find out where you stand and maybe get some new ideas that you can incorporate into your design.
