It seems to me that a related thread about working with others started turning into this topic instead. Project management is a relatively complex subject and can encompass a broad range of topics.

Let's assume the project is 'typical' and includes some grading and hardscaped details along with the planting, irrigation and lighting. How would you approach a 'typical' project and how do you define your management style?
