It can be beneficial to formulate descriptions and policies regarding our occupation, and then practice articulating those, or at least have them written down somewhere to refer to if needed. At least I find it helpful, after having been caught tongue-tied in a significant number of instances which turned out in retrospect to have been existentially crucial moments (either for me, or someone else, or both).
Using this space as a scratch-box for my formulations; if you find any of it helpful please feel free to use/adapt.
Also I offer one-on-one consultation on a sliding scale and you can use that time for me to help you articulate your own occupational descriptions, polices, etc. Services are offered via teleconsult: by phone (preferred); or Zoom or similar (with a slight upcharge for the added bandwidth of being on video).
To my local friends wanting guidance on how to get started: I offer eco landscaping services, including both planning and labor. A variety of options are available to suit your budget.
To my nonlocal friends: I offer teleconsult services and can connect you with the best eco landscapers in your geographic area!
To my existing premium clients: If anyone asks you how much you paid for your landscaping work that I did, feel free to let them know that although you chose a premium level of service that includes regular maintenance, there are various levels of service and many options, and I can offer something for every budget (even almost free, if they are willing to sift thru prerecorded/written material and then DIY the design and labor, or else DIY the design and just pay their own usual basic yard workers to do the physical part of the work).
