Hey Kev, funny we should be communicating this way instead of calling but wondered if any of you out there would want to start a sub group of residential for traditional/classical. Not many out there but I think would help to focus the discussion. Not that interested in what's 'hip'. Trying to keep a long view. No offense to the fashionistas. ps green doesn't really mean technology like plastic.

Hey everyone, I recently launched a landscape Design Build Magazine this Spring.It focuses more on the consumer rather than the landscape architecture/ landscape designer profession. If any of you are interested at all to see what it's all about you can visit click the magazine and you can look through the magazine free of charge. We are launching our Fall issue this September! feed back or advice is always appreciated.

Hello all.. Any plant buffs out there have experience with Panicum virgatum 'heavy metal' or 'Northwind' in the SF bay area?  Based on the zone specs it should be fine but my broker hasn't sold too many of them and couldn't comment on how they perform in the area... any help would be appreciated.

Another bit of good news on the residential front:

Maybe not the most scientific, but it is client based...

to David -- your response was great. thanks. we are about to over-seed an area with native wildflower mix. have to say, had a really good chuckle, more like chortle reading your comments. then had this amazing image of you talking to some folks out in your mojave neck of the woods about carbon sequestration (mostly because I have been in that situation), and only understanding that you intended to sink the host of American Idol in their front yard. and then you just settling for an agreement on their part not to butcher the Texas Rangers into baseballs. and them left wondering, but the Texas Rangers are a base ball team, so..... anyway, that brought on the loud much-needed laugh i think you were referring to lower down on the comment wall. so, i guess i am left with this: be committed to bringing an approach that encompasses what is most sustainable for a particular site (given what the latest and best information is), be willing to educate our clients, but in the end, it's their landscape, so above all we have to keep our sense of humor. keep up the good work. John

I was wondering what sites residential designers use to find certain products or materials. Let's say you want to find certain types of outdoor porcelain tiles, sculptures, water features, etc. Are there sites out there that are relevant for us to use? And if so, would anyone like to share these?
Comment by Chris on February 27, 2010 at 7:47am if I can just get the gardeners to stop hacking the Leucophyllum candidum's into baseballs I'd be great!

-Ditto here
-haha 'gardeners' - right, sure. They used to have hammers and were framers, now they have a hedge trimmer so they're gardeners.

Take-Offs/Estimating using QuickBooks 6 Replies

Does anybody have any experience using QuickBooks in estimating projects?  We are currently taking strides to improve efficiency in this arena, and have begun to explore this possibility.  If not, any suggestions on estimating software?

Anyone do Construction Management? How much do you charge? How do you get your clients on board to pay you to manage the projects?
