This week's question of the week addresses an often confusing industry term:
Q: I received an estimate for a raised flower bed that will be 4 blocks high. Length of the flower bed is about 25 feet long. On the quote, the price I was given is for 100 linear feet. Can you explain how that works?
A: Well, a lot depends on who is quoting the estimate. Some landscapers quote by the square feet, others by the linear feet. If quoted by linear foot, 1 row is 25 linear feet. If you have the 4 blocks high, each row is 25 linear feet, therefore, your quote will be 100 linear foot. (Please see diagram) I hope this clears up the confusion!
