5 Reasons to Hire a Landscape Professional

Why hire a landscape professional you ask? Why spend the money? Why spend the extra time it takes to plan your landscape?

Years ago, when I was starting out on my own, a client told me an interesting story – their light bulb moment – that I have never forgotten. They said that they had made so many costly mistakes with their landscape choices over the years, that they decided it made good sense to hire me to help them with their new addition rather than go it alone. They realized it would cost them less money and they would end up with a much better product, if they worked with a professional instead of trying to do it all themselves.  My client had had that ‘ah ha moment’ which resulted in a phone call to me.  Have you ever had that ‘ah ha moment’ with a project of your own, whether it be landscape or maybe a renovation, that perhaps should have been handled by a professional?

As a creative, I appreciate the desire to do things yourself.  And depending on your skill set, talents, hobbies and desires – achieving them on your own is possible.  However, landscapes require maintenance, understanding and nurture – there are lots of variables with seasons, positioning and not to mention the plethora of planting options available. It would be in your best interest to consult a professional, so you can get it right the first time and can enjoy your properties potential sooner rather than later.   To make it super simple, this list helps articulate just what hiring a professional can help achieve.

5 reasons why you need to hire a Landscape Professional:

  1. Experienced horticulturalists can help you avoid costly mistakes
  2.  They can solve problems and maximize the potential of your property
  3. A designer will find creative ways to produce an outdoor space that reflects your needs
  4. They are trained in addressing site concerns such as drainage, screening and soil conditions.
  5. A Landscape designer will work with contractors, who they have built working relationships with, and provide you with a budget range to help you determine whether to build the project all at once or to phase it in over time.

    I hadn’t thought about how landscapers also work with contractors that can also give input to your yard. I have been looking for someone to help set up a new lawn in my backyard. I can see how it would be nice to hire a professional. That way, I will be able to get advice from people who have lots of experience.

    I can see why hiring a landscape company is smart. Like you said, they can help us avoid mistakes that will cost us money! We’re looking to design our yards right now, and I’d rather trust a professional with that. After all, we have to live with the results.

    It got me when you said that landscape companies will ensure that your budget will be met and that the project will be done in time. We actually needed that information because we have been unsure whether to hire one or not since we have a limited budget. We just needed to have our lawn serviced to make it more appealing so that we can sell it as soon as possible.

    Thank you for stating that landscapers can solve problems and maximize the potential of your property. My yard is in horrible shape and needs some fixing up. I will definitely keep all of your great tips and information in mind when trying to hire a suitable landscaper.

    It’s good to know that there are lots of variables with landscaping depending on the season, so it would be in your best interest to hire a professional to help you with it. My wife and I would like to sell our house, and to bring in more buyers we’d like to get some landscaping done. We’re nowhere close to being experts, so we’ll be sure to hire a professional who can help us get our landscaping work done.
