Professional landscapers have received extensive training in their field. You are not guaranteed to have quality work from all landscapers, but checking google and/or facebook reviews give you a better chance of finding a good company who does quality work.
Pro landscapers have knowledge of the area. They are aware of things like soil types, soil PH levels, native plants and more.
Landscapers know which plants are a good fit for your area and climate. Landscaping companies have professional-grade equipment and they know how to use it.
The fact that these talented experts do landscaping day in and day out will only serve as an advantage to you. An experienced landscaper knows how to deal with challenges such as, uneven terrain, clay soil, areas that flood, or areas where grass won’t grow.

Saves time and money
Saving time and money is probably the number one reason homeowners decide to retain landscaping services. The added hours of free time that you will gain, just cannot be beat.
I know when I mow my lawn, once I finish, I’m already worn out. But I still need to edge and blow.
This can feel frustrating. Not to mention, if I see any weeds that need to be pulled.
What started out as an hour’s job, can easily turn into a full day’s work. When you hire out, the company sends a team and the work is complete in half the time.
Let’s go back to quality work for a minute. When you don’t know what you’re doing or you’re a beginner, it’s easy to make mistakes.
These mistakes will cost you money each time you have to fix them.
That won’t be the case with a professional landscaper. They will get the job done right, the first time.
Budget is set
Another key point is that with a professional landscaping company, the budget is set before the work is done. This fact will also end up saving you money.
It’s so easy to overspend when you go to the garden store and just start putting plants in your cart. A big part of efficient landscaping involves planning the home landscape.
Landscape design is a complex process and it truly starts with researching what you want and comparing that alongside what you can afford. You’ll be able to sit down with a trained specialist and discuss exactly what you want and how they will get it done.

They will do all of that within the budget that was set.
Variety of services
A landscape is more than just a lawn. The proper design of a landscape includes the lawn, garden beds, borders, walkways, plants, bushes, lighting, etc.
That’s why these days landscape companies do more than just lawn mowing. They mow, they plant, they design and so much more.
Landscaping companies offer a variety of services. Clients can choose from on-going services such as lawn mowing and fertilization or they may opt for a one-time service like landscaping or tree trimming.
Professional landscapers are one-stop shops. You can get everything you need done at the same time, by the same company.
An article published by Texas A&M, Agrilife Extension states that, “And if you anticipate selling your home in the future, remember that quality landscaping increases your home’s curb appeal, and potentially its value.”
Studies say well-done landscaping can increase your home’s value by up to 17%. Hiring a professional landscaper is an easy and convenient way to save yourself time and money.
