- Why aren’t prices listed on your website?
Each of our installations projects and maintenance contracts are tailored specifically to the client’s needs and wishes and require measuring. There is no one-size-fits-all contract, and we meet with each client individually to discuss which services and products will be the best choices. For more information and your free estimate, contact us.
- What is your payment policy?
We currently accept cash and checks and will begin accepting credit cards at the start of our 2013 maintenance season. Our normal installation procedure is 50% upon signing the contract with the remaining 50% due upon satisfactory completion. Larger projects may require draws after completed phases. For maintenance, we bill monthly after services have been completed. At the end of each month you receive an itemized invoice of completed services. Some services are outside and annualized contract; these include mulch, irrigation repairs, and more and are included on monthly invoices after completion.
- Do you match competitors’ quotes?
If the quotes and specifications are comparable ‘apples to apples,’ we may be able to match. Often, a large disparity in pricing from one company to another can be due to a number of factors, some of which are not readily visible. Some of these factors may include the level of prep work to be provided or the care you are to receive during and after the project. Be wary of low bids as shortcuts are usually made, poor quality plant material is used, inferior workmanship is performed, and little to no soil amendments are made. At a minimum, you should always check licensing and qualifications as well as comparable references. The term “you get what you pay for” holds true in the landscaping service industry.
