Landscape Contractors – Going Beyond Simple Lawn Care
You need some landscaping done. You go online and search “landscapers”. It seems simple enough, but the results of your search yield information for lawn services, landscapers, and landscape contractors. You’re left wondering what the difference is and which one you should call. That all depends on what you want to have done.
With the increasing popularity of outdoor living, the landscaping industry has evolved to include more than planting and lawn care. If that’s all you’re looking for, you are better off Googling “lawn care services”. However, if you’re looking to turn your backyard into a luxurious outdoor living space, you’ll want to Google “landscape contractors”
Let’s take a look at the services each provides.
Traditional lawn care and landscaping services focus primarily on the planting and care of your lawn, shrubs, and flower beds. A lawn care service typically includes:
- Lawn Mowing – In addition to cutting the grass, this includes weed whacking, edging, and cleaning up all the resulting debris.
- Lawn Maintenance – This includes periodic fertilization and weed removal to keep your lawn healthy and beautiful.
- Aeration – To aerate your lawn, small cores are removed from it. These are barely noticeable and will loosen the soil, allowing water and nutrients to reach the lawn’s roots. It can also help prevent thatching that could lead to fungus damaging your lawn.
- Pruning – Bushes and shrubs are trimmed and shaped, and any dead wood is removed.
- Seasonal Cleanups – These take place in the spring and fall. Your lawn is cleared of dead leaves, fallen branches, and any other debris that has accumulated.
.A landscaping service does all of the above-mentioned services, garden areas, and flower beds. They may even create paver walkways and patios or install garden statues. If you’re thinking: ”what more could you want?’, then a landscaper or lawn service is what you need. However, if more is what you had in mind, you want to work with landscape contractors.
While they may have started as traditional landscapers and provide many of the same services, landscaping contractors offer much more, providing services that meet the demands of luxury outdoor living.
After all, an outdoor living area is simply an extension of your home. It requires planning, designing, and construction with strict attention to detail. Just like the interior of your home, your outdoor areas should have a natural flow while bringing many of your home’s interior conveniences outside. That takes a lot more than a lawnmower, hedge trimmer, and a couple of shovels.
When you work with landscape contractors, the process begins with a consultation to allow the contractor to understand what features you want and how they will fit into your existing landscape. Then they will create a plan for the entire project. Some landscape contractors will draw up and show you one-dimensional designs, similar to blueprints.
