Estimates and timing.
We work as fast as possible to get a price completed.
Our estimates are done on a one by one basis and first come first served. When we perform a design with a client our time is spent on the details contained inside of the landscape design itself. Once completed that is when we will put the design into our estimating process. Sometimes estimates can be completed within a day, this depends on what is in the estimate.
Other estimates could be waiting ahead of yours.
There may already be estimates that are being worked up and they may be large. This can cause a delay in estimating. During the spring and early summer we are typically backed up on estimates, however during the winter we are typically more free to estimate at the most rapid rate. Some estimates are simple and move quickly while others because of more rare materials may take longer. EX. Cedar at larger dimensions, Stone products out of state, and other hard to get materials.
We want to have the most competitive price for you. There are times where we may take longer because you have some big ticket items that we would like put effort into getting a better price on. The process of shopping with different providers while managing daily tasks can take days at times. The typical result of our efforts to save clients money is that we are able to lower the total cost.
Our goal is to get a client the fastest possible pricing while also providing the value of great materials at reasonable prices. We believe this is how to correctly serve the interests of our clients.
