While many people enjoy tackling home improvement projects, it can save time, money and headaches to partner with a professional for your landscaping.
Bring your landscaping vision to life
Knowing what you want and creating it are often two different things. A landscape designer your community trusts will choose plants and hardscape that appeal to you and fit with your home’s architecture and natural features. These selections will thrive in your soil, your climate, your drainage, and the amount of sun each area of your yard receives. In a design led by your vision, they will transform your yard into the oasis you imagined.
Save money over the long run
Over time, it can actually cost less to use a professional landscaper than to design, install and care for your lawn, plants and trees yourself. A pro will work within your budget, and choose durable plants for the ecosystem of your yard. They can also protect your investment by checking in frequently to ensure that everything looks good and stays healthy.
Homeowners often select plants that don’t like where they are planted and have to be replaced. Plus, it is easy to underestimate the amount of labor that goes into a new landscape, and you can end up cutting corners that lead to expensive fixes.
It can be extremely frustrating to find–after putting in an enormous amount of time, money and effort—that you are not impressed with the results, and need to call a professional to undo your hard work.
Enhance your home security
An important function of any home or business landscape is security. An experienced professional will help you decide where to add or take away features to discourage intruders. Fencing, new lighting, motion sensors, and the reconfiguration of plants that hide your house can all make your home more secure, while enhancing its appearance. Keeping your trees trimmed is also critical to the safety and security of your home.
Improve your property value
A well-kept landscape, designed to look beautiful year-round, will increase the value of your home, and contribute to the attractiveness of your street. With the guidance of a professional, you can take pride in your home’s curb appeal every day, rest assured that it blends in nicely with nearby homes, and get top dollar when it comes time to sell.
Enjoy the yard you want now
Time is money, and it can take much more of both than you planned to upgrade your landscape without help. Why spend weeks doing exhausting manual labor you could instead savor—relaxing in your lovely new outdoor living space?
Trusted professionals do the work quickly, with the care you would give the job yourself–if you had the time-luxury of “doing it right the first time.”
If you have several “trouble spots,” a good landscaping company is the most time- and cost-effective way to go. They have experience looking at the big picture and solving a number of problems at once.
It matters too much to leave to chance
The front of your home is the “face” you present to the world. It makes all the difference in feeling at home where you live. You can do it yourself, of course, and here are some things to keep in mind if you decide to go that route. But unless you have the greenest of thumbs, go pro when it comes to a home-improvement project as important as landscaping.
