Testimonials

“I have referred this tool to many of my clients and they are appreciative that this has saved them time (therefore money) when calculating estimates or enhancements. I highly recommend www.LandscapeCalculator.com to companies involved in any aspect of the landscape industry.”

Ellen E.

President, Landscape Training Solutions

“Finally, a landscape calculator that correctly lets me know the real number of plants we need for plant installation jobs. This is especially helpful when determining the amount of annuals needed for our beds by correctly taking into consideration spacing from the edge of the bed, between each plant and planting technique of alternating each row. I you think that a 10’ x 10’ bed that has annuals planted a foot apart will take 100 plants, you have overestimated by over 20% the amount needed! The calculator also provides you with the choice of calculating for landscape beds that have trees growing in them so that these “real life” situations can be translated into the equation while giving you and accurate plant number.”

“At Ibis Nursery, we included a link from our web site to the Landscape Calculator. It's the only tool we recommend to our customers when they're trying to estimate mulch coverage. The estimates are always right on the money, and my clients like that they can even specify a mulch thickness. Outstanding. Nothing saves time and money like buying the right amount of materials the first time. I don't know what we'd do without it.”
