What Do Landscaping Professionals Do?
Landscaping refers to the process of making yards and other land exteriors attractive by planting foliage (like trees and shrubs), adding ornamental features (like fountains), or otherwise altering the existing design. Landscaping professionals provide a wide range of services related to both residential and commercial properties.
As the specialties and expertise of each landscape company will vary, it’s important to reach out to a variety to find out which is the best for your needs. The following list features a few popular services landscaping companies provide:
Lawn Maintenance. Lawn maintenance services are one of the most common provided by local landscape companies. This includes mowing grass, pruning shrubs, insect and pest control, weeding, leaf and debris removal, and fertilization of grass and other vegetation. Lawn maintenance can be conducted on a weekly, monthly, or quarterly basis, depending on your budget and lawn care needs.
Garden Bed Design and Installation. A landscaping professional can also help with more specialized landscapes, like gardens and flower beds. This includes design based on color and height, for the fullest and most attractive of garden beds, along with product purchase and planting. Your landscaper will advise you about the best way to care for your garden and flower bed.
Hardscaping Design and Installation. Hardscaping are the hard materials, both organic and man-made, that are used in home landscapes (as opposed to natural foliage and vegetation). Hardscapes include stone garden walls, tiled walkways and patios, brick paver driveways, and wooden pergolas. Hardscaping is a technique used in both front yard and backyard landscaping.
What to Consider Before Hiring Landscaping Companies?
One of the best ways to find landscaping professional is through the company reviews portion of Renowaze. The landscaping reviews contain unbiased information about different professionals and will shed some light on the benefits and drawbacks of working with the specific contractor. It is also important to pay attention to their insurance and licensing. Licenses are issued to companies and contractors that have met the industry and local town or city’s requirements. On the other hand, insurance coverage shows that the contractor cares about their workers and your property. In case there is an accident or an incident that leads to an injury or destruction of property during the project, you will not be liable. You will be compensated if your property has been damaged.
If you are tackling a large project, determine your budget and other details surrounding your project before meeting with a landscaping professional. The more details you can provide, the closer you will get to your completed renovation. Don’t settle on the first estimate you receive. Try to get multiple quotes from different companies and ask a lot of questions to determine which contractor you want to work with.
