Not so far. The reality is that a cert landscape designer is gonna charge a few grand for the same design. So the truth is, they dont have much room to complain. They can see the design for free. I have no problem doing the work for free because you just add it to your book of things you've designed. But I give a copy of the design with the bid. Eash plant has it's own color and a small side list with the color and plant name that I recomened. Then a few options that could replace each plant for ideas. That way the cclient can look over every thing and know what their looking at before they decide.

So if they look at it and just know they dont like it, no need fo any money. But if they think they might like it or just want to think about changes I make them a copy and a bid. Then I need some money.

So normally you wouldn't need billing information from them before you presented them with a design to review? Like asking them for a credit card in return for allowing them to look at the design?

All I need is a budget and a conversation to do the design. If when I show it to them they simply say lets do it then no charge at all. But if they want to keep a copy for any reason I need some money. Because at that point any one can do the work.

I think that is a great way to handle the situation.
