How Do I Choose a Landscape Designer?

When hiring landscape design services, you should always look for experience and expertise. To do this, you should have an idea of the style and look that you want for your lawn. From there, you can narrow down your research and only look at landscape services that offer that style. 

Get the best deal by shopping around and asking for free quotes from multiple contractors. This will help you compare their offers and pricing before hiring the right one for you.

Before you sign the contract, check the contractor has proper licensing, insurance, and bonding. This will protect you and your money should accidents occur during the project.

If you care about the environment, opt for landscape contractors that observe green and responsible gardening practices. Ask about their soil preparation process, plant selection, water conservation, grasscycling, and use of chemicals.

Lastly, check the pricing of landscape design services. The landscape designer should meet your budget with decent inclusions on the contract.


Is it worth hiring a landscaper?

Residential landscape design experts have a level of knowledge that far surpasses the average gardener. If you want to have a garden that looks amazing, they will save you time and money — and they'll create the exact look you want.

Landscape experts will also work within a budget and a specific timeframe. This reduces the resource wastage as well as the mess of experimental gardening. Most of all, landscapers observe local codes and compliance in their line of work.
