Let’s face it: Professional landscapers do more than lay down sod and trim trees. As experts in their field, landscapers are familiar with landscape design, including what plants will grow best in your yard and how much and often to water them. Landscapers can advise on when/if to use pesticides and offer non-chemical alternatives. They know about shade and sunlight and how much is best for each plant you may want in your yard. Some types of landscaping are more expensive to maintain than others. Landscapers can help you estimate what maintenance will cost so you don’t spend a lot of time and money planting something you can’t ultimately keep.
So once your landscaping looks and functions you want it to, you have to turn your attention to maintenance. Tending to your plants, trees and landscaping takes time, attention and expertise. While homeowners are certainly capable of researching gardening issues on their own, the time invested in research alone can be daunting. And there is no substitute for experience! Employing a professional means that they will not only be able to implement whatever needs to be done, they can offer their vast experience so you won’t waste time and money trying solutions that might not work.
If you are looking to hire landscapers, for a single job or for regular maintenance, there are some things you should keep in mind. It is perfectly acceptable to ask for references and inquire about how much experience they have. Visit locations where they currently work and see for yourself if they produce good work. Take the time to ask questions before you hire landscapers. It is important that you have confidence in the professionals you hire so you can relax and enjoy your beautiful yard.
