Things to consider when hiring a landscaper or gardener

Gardening and landscaping can cover a very large variety of services, and the way you want those services done can also vary greatly. Here are some things to consider to make sure you find the right lawn and garden specialist for your job :

Get Inspired

Go for a walk around your neighbourhood and look for lawns and gardens which you think look good. Go online and try and get some landscaping ideas for lawns and gardens that fit your profile. Inspiration is important to figuring out exactly what plants and features you would most enjoy have in your lawn and garden.

Have A Clear Budget

Lawn services can range from cheap to expensive, depending on what you want. If you just want someone with a lawn mower to keep your small lawn's grass short and neat, it's not going to be very expensive. If you want a full service of your lawn, with manicured grass around mulched and planted garden beds, it will cost you.

Have A Clear Idea Of What You Want

With a budget in mind you can figure out exactly what you want to get done within that budget. The more specific the better, if you want a sprinkler system that hits one part of the lawn but not the other, be sure to let your professional know. In addition, the more specific you are in what you want to eventually end up with will help your professional decide if this is something their company can do and what gardening tools they will need to bring. Efficiency is an important part of keeping cost low and satisfaction high.

Know How Much Work You'll Be Doing Day To Day 

Realistically assess how much time you are going to be able to put into your lawn and garden. If it's not a large amount you may want to scale back what you had in mind or discuss with your lawn and garden professional about hiring them to maintain the area as well as create it.
