First BIG job--any tips?
When I first started my business 5 years ago, a seasoned landscaper warned me not to get too big too fast, and to be careful when taking on my first "big" job after being used to smaller jobs. Well I'm in the design/planning process of my first big job, and I'm wondering what I need to pay attention to organizationally to pull it off.
How are "big" jobs different from small ones? What are the pitfalls of taking on a big job (by big I mean $50,000 budget and landscaping a very large lot around a very large house with very specific design needs)? This could be the beginning of my business growing from one level to the next, and I want to be as prepared as I can. Any tips?
