Landscape Project Quotes - thoughts??
We are trying to get quotes for landscaping around our pool that we installed a few years ago.
We paid a landscape architect for a plan that we then plan to get bids on. I am curious on your thoughts of this....
We gave him a budget between 5k and 6k. His plan came back w/ a price tag of 16k!!!! I would have thought he would provide a plan w/in our budget. Is that unrealistic?
Maybe his fee is just too high for the plan, but the other interesting piece is that his plan included 438 plants/flowers/shrubs and another company who provided a free plan only included 53 plants/flowers/shrubs for basically the same area!!! Why such the disconnect???
We are following back up w/ each of them early next week, but curious if there is anything else that you think we should ask about.
We also got a quote from a landscaper guy who would just charge 1,200/day to do the work if we supplied all of the plants that he said he could purchase w/ his wholesaler discount. He said it wouldn't take more than 2 days, but the other guys say 7-10 days....just cannot figure out why such the variance!
