Hiring the best contractor in your city to handle all of your landscaping needs whilst you work is a wise move. Letting your house diminish in both appeal and value because you don’t have enough time on your hands is a lame excuse. And I totally get it.
Even though professional landscaping contractors do one hell of a job in keeping your yard in tip-top shape, they don’t come for free either. So in order to help you figure out what to do next, I have come up with a few ingenious ways to hiring a contractor who is affordable and gets the job done.
Have A Method And Stick To It
You should see the look on the faces of my neighbours when I tell them how much I spend on landscaping annually. It’s almost as if I’ve just told them that gas is now free, effective tomorrow!
But what most of us don’t realise is that yard maintenance is all about devising a method. Whether it’s raking fallen leaves on Monday, automated lawn sprinkling every Wednesdays, and plant care on Saturdays, it’s all about having a set timetable.
Reach A Decision
Once set, it’s up to you to reach a final decision on what you can “DIY” and what you should leave to a contractor. Watering is something you can do yourself as all it takes is turning the valve – consider investing in an automated system- and it’s all systems go. But for something as complicated as propagating orchids and exotic flowers, you might need someone to come by once a week.
Eyes Like A Hawk
Don’t just drive past the pristine gardens of fellow homeowners and wish your yard was even half as good. Stop and engage with them. Take notes. I wouldn’t risk my money on someone whose work I’ve never had the opportunity to adore.
