Evening all, 

I've had a day of relentless bugbears today which led me to wonder what is the most annoying thing you hear on a regular basis? 

I have a few.. 

'Rather you than me' (on a cold or wet day) 

'Lovely day for it' (on a hot day) 

Anything weather related really..

Do you have a rough idea of how much? (5 mins in to the first site visit whilst trying to measure up) 

"I just need some ideas" (ARRRGGHHH) 

the word Slabbing instead of Paving. 

I'm sure I could think of some more..

  • Sorry slightly off track but I have my first site cost at 4pm and you saying 'measuring up' is worrying me! Do you literally measure the size of the gardens?

      I think that's for hard landscape work
      Some seem to measure grass though which I find a bit weird just for cutting it!
      • Oh okay thanks Richard!

      Don't forget, you don't have to give a price there and then, go have a look, take a few pics if you can, measure out if you want (as it's your first ones) then go away, work out a price then get back in touch with the "prospective client". I seldom give a price for anything on the spot... good luck

        To add I'm in the Richard camp with regards to measuring up just for lawn cuts, unless it's massive then I know how long it will take to cut and price accordingly.
