“I need 3 bids before I can hire anybody.”
While there’s nothing wrong with comparing quotes, nothing takes the place of working with a team who has your best interest in mind above and beyond whatever the cost of work may be. Your landscape design and construction project is a creative effort, and there is no way to compare apples to apples bids without leaving out multiple, very important, yet subtle variables. Reality is, you just don’t know how things are going to go on your project, no matter who you hire. And a low price is more often than not an indication of a lower quality of service. So, if you do want to compare quotes, and you do get our price, and it’s higher, keep in mind, there’s a reason. A good reason. And it’s not just because we are making more money either. It’s more likely because we are doing more work for you to accomplish the same result. Think on that for a minute. If it all looks the same to you when it’s done, why would you pay more for someone like us to do it? Some people just won’t. Makes no sense, they say. But a savvy investor home owner type knows they will regret not doing the right thing in the right way, and feel the pain of that frustration and resentment, so much longer when they experience the challenges of having made that decision, than the far more simple, temporary sting of a higher financial cost, for the certainty of work done the way it really could and should be done, without all the trouble associated with call backs and nagging someone to return and fix things for months after the job should have been done and peace restored to the property. No, you certainly don’t want to go that route. So again, just ask yourself… what is a budget amount you can sleep well without, knowing it’s been wisely invested into your landscaping? Help us understand that number, and we will make sure your project is planned in the best way possible to accommodate you at that budget. Really couldn’t be more simple than that. You don’t need to go around spending a ton of time comparing quotes that all have different factors and variables, trying to decide who is the most sincere, who is the most professional, trustworthy, committed. Fact of the matter is, we are all of those things and more. And if you get a good feeling from us, you can just move ahead with us and sit back, watch what we can do for you. Done. And you know, if that’s not your style of working with your Contractor, again, we may not be the right fit for you. We are not all things to all people. We too want to work with people who like our approach. So please don’t feel like you need to change who you are to work within our format. If you like what we offer, and want to give it a try, by all means, book a consultation and lets get together at your earliest convenience. But if you have doubts and just need to do your homework on more than one firm to make your decision, it’s all good. We understand. Just know, we’ll be here when you’re ready for us. And this is how we recommend doing it to get the best results with respect to your time, appreciation for excellent work, with a responsive, responsible, highly skilled team, who takes a tremendous amount of pride and delivers a ton of love in our work. We really don’t want you going off into the dark down the road of “educating yourself” to find that the world of contracting is more complicated than it may initially seem to you. And it would be our intent to spare you that frustration and cost of time and effort, and send you on your way that much sooner with the results you truly seek in your project. After all… you aren’t reading all this to just hire someone else now are you? You are just trying to see why we are so great, and what we are willing to state about our work, publicly, says a lot about who we are. It’s bold, brave, and presumptive even… sure. But it’s also right and proper. And we promise you will have no regrets if you trust our team with your project and follow our lead from the beginning to the end.
