- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
My labor is $70. per hour for gardening, weekly maintenance, planting seasonal containers, and Spring and Fall cleanups. This does not include materials such as plants, fertilizer, soil, etc. Landscape design and installation are priced individually because they vary from project to project.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I like to respond promptly by phone or email. If that goes well, then I like to set up a meeting with the client at the work site to actually see the space and discuss the project they have in mind. We can then talk about their needs, how they want to be able to use the area, ideas, and wish list. From there we can discuss my suggestions and options and I can give them an idea of price.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Degree in Horticulture, U of Guelph, Ontario. 30 + years experience in landscaping design/build in Minnesota, Brooklyn, NY, Naples, Florida, and California
