    …screw you out of any future jobs. If the entire job feels like its going to be done well under time then my advice is don't stiff them to the point of indifference. They will end you!

    If I can add something here…; Be careful when doing jobs that you quote for at a guesstimated time to complete…and then only be there for a very short period! This location appeared to be a strata management set up? They have residence owners who will spy your every move, secretly clock you in and out then report it back at the next body corporate meeting to screw you

    something don't add up here, you said 300 ft of wall cap had to be lifted brushed clean and re-glued, plus your 1 hour travel time, you bid it at 7 hours but he was done in an hour, well he only went there and came back, if what you say is true, you also say it only took 1 tube of glue for 300ft, huum was the job even done and done well is what I need to know, or you really messed this vid up big time

    Stanley, I would like to offer some advice on the wall cap project. This comes from a construction point to of view which most of your experience has been working for a commercial general consensus tractor. One tube of adhesive for 300 linear feet means there is not adequate. maybe up north you can get away with that. but that would never fly down here in Florida. If I was going to skimp on the adhesive I would say maybe 3 rubes. 100ft per tube. But a single tube for that length should be checked out in a year for loose caps.

    Great video thanks

    Great video!  I do lump sum 99% of the time…  I find that customers are a little sticker shocked at first and want second and third bids…  75% of the time they come back to me (the first bid) because 1) other companies never show up for a on site evaluation and 2) they are comparable to my bid…  Thanks for the great videos  It has helped me get my business up and going on the right track!

  • id like to know how you come up with the prices. is like to get into this business on the side but i have no clue how you estimate something this big or bigger thanks . got to love jeeps

  • David D 11 months ago

    Do you ever lower your final price when a job like this takes a fraction of the time estimated? Such as only charging them $350 instead of the $450.

    Good one clear explanation, thank you

  • tjaldex225 11 months ago

    i'm soon finished with the landscasping education in denmark, and i had a couple of projects already, but want more. My biggest problem with lump sum is that people often get surprised by the number i "come up with". So any advice on how to get to a cheaper price and still protect your self, and delliver good work? Also great videos=)

    people even my dad said I would not make money off landscaping. first 2 months I already have my zero turn/blower/stringtrimmer/and the echo multitool paid off.

  • Mike Cowan 11 months ago

    that entire wall only took 1 tube of glue and 1hour of work! where the fuck you get your employees I need some

  • Mike Cowan 11 months ago

    around here landscapers get 8$ but I take care of mine I pay 15-20depending on experience because workers are willing to do more if they get more. and my competition charges like 80$ a hour
