3 Reasons Why You Need to Hire Landscape Contractors

Your landscape can affect the aesthetic appeal of your home and a well-designed landscape can add up to 20% to your home’s value. Landscaping projects are more demanding than you think. However, there is more to landscaping than just planting plants and adding walkways. Whether your project involves designing and building a new landscape or maintaining an existing one, an experienced Healdsburg landscaper can manage it from start to finish. Landscape contractors have acquired specialized knowledge and landscaping skills. Their training enables them to bring their customers' vision to life. Here are some benefits of hiring a landscape contractor.

1. Save Time

Landscaping projects are more complex than many homeowners think. There are several things to remember when designing, building, and maintaining a landscape. If you take on a landscape project yourself, you may forget something important or make a costly mistake that can derail your project, and force you back to the drawing board. An experienced landscape contractor does it right the first time. They consider the soil type, local climate, site topography, and all other factors when developing a project plan. If a mistake is made, it will be corrected at no cost to you. Many homeowners hate spending their weekends caring for their plants and flowers. A landscape contractor can carry out all landscaping tasks including procuring materials, so you can make more time for your loved ones and spend your weekends doing things you enjoy the most.


2. Save Money

Landscape contractors help their customers save money in several ways. They leverage their network of material suppliers to secure the best deals for their clients. Cost overrun in landscaping projects is every homeowner's worst nightmare. So, a landscape contractor plans projects to the last detail to prevent cost overruns. Change Orders, if and when they occur, are put in writing, agreed to and signed before proceeding. Specialized landscaping tools are expensive. By hiring a landscape contractor, you can eliminate this expense, as landscape contractors have the tools of the trade. A landscape contractor can help cut costs without cutting corners. For example, if you are on a budget, your landscape contractor can suggest equally good, cost-effective alternatives to expensive materials.


3. Make Informed Decisions

When choosing materials, plants, and soil for their landscape, many homeowners feel overwhelmed by too many choices and choose the most popular materials. Unfortunately, there are better choices than your garden's most popular plants and materials. A landscape contractor can help you make informed decisions when choosing landscape materials. For example, if you need clarification on two or more material options, your contractor can help you weigh their pros and cons to choose the best material for your project. They can also help you distinguish between must-haves and nice-to-have features.
