5 Projects You Should Hire a Professional Landscaper to Handle

Published on: December 30, 2016

Are there areas in your yard that need help? You may be planning to spend a weekend shopping at a home improvement store to get what you need, then heading home to try and handle these issues yourself.  But are you qualified to fix your landscaping issues? The problem with doing landscape projects on your own is there is the possibility that you may not get it right the first time around. Save yourself time and money by hiring a professional landscaper for these five specialized projects.

  1. Garden or Koi ponds. You may think adding a small garden or koi pond is a great DIY project. After all, they sell affordable kits at your nearby home improvement store. But the truth is, many end up needing to be replaced or removed within a year due to improper installation.
  2. Drainage issues. Do you want to improve the drainage on your property? There are mathematical considerations as well as regional anomalies that are best handled by a professional.
  3. Lawn repair. Are you struggling to get the lush lawn you desire? It may be more extensive than just seeding, fertilizing and watering your lawn. Save time by hiring an expert.
  4. Pruning. Need your trees pruned back or hedges shaped? Doing pruning incorrectly can harm your trees and shrubs. Let your local landscaper help.
  5. Sod installation. Sod is expensive. Don’t try to save a few bucks by installing it yourself. Allow a professional to correctly install it for the best results.

Sometimes trying to do improvements yourself can cost you more in time and money than it is worth. For major outdoor improvements, call your local landscaper to get it done right the first time around.
