Review:

....This a highly readable, user-friendly and professional guide. It is thorough enough to introduce students or industry newcomers to the many considerations and the big picture of landscape estimating, and also to keep seasoned professionals up-to-date on the latest industry trends. An excellent companion to Site Work & Landscape Cost Data.

I foresee using this book on a regular basis in my Landscape Architecture "Planting Design" and Horticulture "Residential Planting Design" courses. I'm not a professional yet so can't really say, but I suspect that this book will be a favorite among professionals. It's a keeper. While Site Work & Landscape Cost Data seems targeted to people who already know what they need to price, Landscape Estimating Methods teaches how to figure that out. --International Cost Engineering Council, February 2009
