If you want a new look or you are starting from scratch, changing the landscape of your lawn to suit the needs of drainage and other issues, then you should consult a landscaping company. They can do everything including:
Remove old tree stumps and smooth out the lawn
Add drainage trenches
Change the direction of a slope
Move large rocks
Professionally care for your lawn during the different seasons
Turn dark corners into sunny ones
You will be amazed what a good landscaper can do for your lawn. Even if you want to maintain the lawn yourself, starting out with a healthy lawn will help you during your first year.
While landscapers are not cheap, you will be able to find a good one in your town that can help make decisions as to the best ways to take care of your soil to the placement of sculptures and structures to enhance the natural beauty of your lawn.
When looking for a landscaper, you should ask the following questions:
Length of time in the business
Number of employees
Cost for projects
Best grass for your lawn
Knowledge of plants and flowers
Whether they use chemical or organic weeding removal methods
How busy they are
These questions will help you access the quality of work you will be receiving. You may want to only hire a landscaper for the aesthetic part of lawn maintenance such as the removal of leaves or when cleaning sculptures. If you want a landscaper’s help on the proper care of your lawn, you should choose a landscaper that feels that same way you do about lawn care or there may be disagreements along the way.
While you should be taking care of the day to day maintenance, a landscaper can help when you have special projects that will need to be completed during the year.
