Even if you prefer to do your own lawn maintenance, there are times when having professional help can be advised. Landscapers can be a great source for projects that require special equipment, expertise or heavy lifting that may be beyond your capabilities. Most landscapers are happy to perform one-time projects without an ongoing maintenance contract. Here are four jobs to consider outsourcing to a landscaper to save you time and even money.
- Yard cleanup. After a big storm or just for normal spring cleanup, hiring a landscaper to clear your yard is a good idea. Not only can it save your back and body from strain, they have the equipment needed to haul away the debris when the cleanup is done.
- Thatching or aerating. When the undergrowth or thatch in your lawn is too thick, it can stunt growth. Aerating or thatching your lawn properly takes special equipment and expertise. Call in a landscaper for this project which only needs to be done occasionally.
- Adding drainage solutions. Why try to add a French drain or ditch yourself when you can call experts in to ensure it is done right? What could take you days will be done in a fraction of the time by a professional.
- Pruning and limb removal. Let a professional handle pruning or removing large limbs from trees. This can be dangerous work to do on your own and you want to ensure it is done properly to protect your trees from harm.
You don’t need to do everything yourself when it comes to yard work and landscaping. For those big or specialized projects, call a professional landscaper to get the job done quickly and with the right equipment.
