I contacted Gardens to request an estimate on a simple front yard landscape project. They asked for a design fee upfront, so I pay it, OK. 6 weeks later, they still have nothing. When I finally hound them to give us an estimate, they show up at my house with a blank piece of paper and a crude pencil sketch of my home boundary. No indication of where plants would go, what work would be done, nothing at all except the outline of my house. The ""design"" didn't even have their name or letterhead, just a 81/2 x 11 piece of paper with a crude sketch. Then they hand me their ""estimate"" which is nearly $30K for a small front yard.
