What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

1. It is a must, that myself and the potential client converse on the telephone enough to know what is desired by them and what we as lanscape architects do. At that point I ask them to view my web site. 

2. If the web site strikes a good cord,  we discuss our design fees, which are hourly and based on the scope of work.

3. If we are all still on the same page. we get together at the site, re-hash what we have pevioously discussed, search out what they can provide, such as plot  plans , utilities, grading etc. From there  we firm up  a final proposal.

4. We then prepare a base plan, by field measuring what was not available from the client, and submit a master plan for approval by the client.

5. Final plans are then  prepared for bidding and installation.

6. Inspection services are available If desired.

7. A final walk through is available if desired.

8. Say our goodbyes when the client is satisfied. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

This is best answered in our web site.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

I prefer to discuss fees with the potential client.

What types of customers have you worked with?

This is best answered in our web site

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

1. In my particular case, I think the client should  want  a design that would not only paciify their needs but draw compliments from  friends, neighbors  and those passing by.   

What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

1. Do you really need a landscape arcitect?

2. If need be, how could a project be phased out                  esthetically?

3  The amount of maintenance required

4. Budget

5. Be open minded, because it is a designers job to provide      a solution to the cliients needs that may be far better than    they have in mind.
