Hiring a landscape professional may be just the ticket for your gardenI like to try to save money by doing projects myself sometimes. I am proud that even though I do not know much about cars, I was able to figure out how to change my own taillight. I’ve crafted and fixed and muddled my way through many other projects.

However, I’ve recognized that there are times when it’s more efficient to call in a professional. Cleaning and organizing are not my forte, so I have hired cleaners before and hope to get regular housekeeping someday. They have the skills and knowledge to get the job done much faster and do a better job in the process.

Now is the time to start thinking seriously about hiring a landscape professional. We have preconceived notions that services like this are not affordable, but it might not be as bad as you think. Sit down and calculate how much it cost you to do your own garden care last year:

  • Did you have to buy any equipment or supplies?
  • How much money/space did it cost to maintain and store your equipment?
  • How much did you spend on fuel for your mower and other tools?
  • How many hours did it take you approximately? Is there something else you could have been doing with that time to make money, rest or do activities that you love?

Once you have that number calculated out, give us a call. We can help you figure out how much service is needed to maintain your yard and what the price would be. You may be surprised to find out that it could indeed cost less to have your lawn care done for you in the coming year, leaving you with the satisfaction of a beautiful garden and more free time in your life.
