Benefits of Hiring My Denver Landscaper vs. Doing it Yourself

April 27, 2016

Hiring a landscaper to design and install your Denver landscaping is like hiring a builder to build your home. You may think you have the skills to install your landscaping, but you can save time and money by hiring a professional team.
Here are some of the benefits of hiring a professional landscaper:
  • Expertise
    Whether you’re designing and creating a new outdoor environment or overhauling your existing yard/garden, a professional will use their many years of experience to ensure that the job is done correctly – and in a timely manner. And while it’s important to include elements that suit your taste and add to the overall look and feel of your home, it is also vital that you select the correct plants for your region, lot, and maintenance schedule. Knowledge of plants can prevent loss due to incorrect planting methods, placement, or conditions, and can help avoid potential later expenses, such as repairs your home's foundation from the damage of an aggressive root system.
  • Quality Products at Lower Prices
    In most cases, landscapers source products in bulk and at wholesale prices with supplier relationship discounts. These are savings which they pass on to you. They also have relationships with a wide range of suppliers in the industry, and this can be very beneficial when it comes to cost, variety, and quality. This flexibility to source plants from multiple suppliers ensures that the quality of those plants/materials remain high.
  • Skills and Experience
    Many landscaping skills, such as hard landscaping where paving, building, and decking are needed, require an experienced team. It also requires attention to detail to ensure that they are installed correctly. When it comes to plants, professionals work to ensure that each and every plant is placed and planted correctly. They also make sure to educate you on how to maintain and protect your new plants, hardscapes, and yard features.
  • Landscape Guidelines, HOA's and Trends
    Many neighborhoods, HOA's, complexes and estates require the homeowner to follow a set of landscaping guidelines, often incorporating the use of indigenous plant material. A professional landscaper makes sure to inquire about such issues and then follows those guidelines to ensure the garden conforms to your aesthetic and maintenance needs, as well as to the set rules and requirements. In addition, landscapers are up to date with the latest trends in the industry and will be able to advise you on ideas, products, and plants that may be beneficial to your yard. Timing is another factor to consider. If you are planning to sell your property, then using a professional team to work on your yard can make a big impact when it comes to the resale value of your home.
