After seeing how many misleading videos about estimating were on YouTube I decided to make my own video showing the proper way to estimate a hardscape/landscape job using man hours rather than estimating by the square foot. Estimating by the square foot does not work well because every job is different than the last; different soil conditions, site access and more.
THIS IS NOT THE ONLY WAY TO ESTIMATE BY MAN HOURS… THIS IS JUST HOW I HAVE DECIDED TO DO IT AS IT HAS WORKED WELL FOR ME.
Here is the link to the Techo Bloc contractor tools. If you scroll down to the bottom and download the estimator tool it has all the forms to find out not only your hourly rate, but also forms to estimate jobs if you would like to use them.
Stay tuned for more instructional videos in the future like this one. If you would like to get my opinion on any other subjects comment bellow and I would be happy to give my input. Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram @mass_hardscaper to see more!
