LBI Landscape Design – Why Choose a Local Contractor

 In Beach Landscaping, Landscape Design, LBI Landscape Design

When homeowners are considering a landscaping project, they often find themselves debating whether to use a local contractor or a larger, national company. LBI landscape design is unique in many ways and to create an outdoor living space that not only blends in but complements the natural landscape requires the skill and knowledge of a local contractor.

Regional Expertise

When planning a landscape design project on the island, there are a number of regional factors to consider. An LBI landscape design contractor will have first-hand knowledge and experience to help move the project along smoothly while providing excellent results.

Local landscape design


A local contractor will know which plants grow well in the sandy soil on LBI. They also know which plants are salt tolerant, an important consideration given our proximity to the ocean. Armed with this knowledge, a local contractor will choose native plantings that look beautiful and require minimal maintenance.


An LBI landscape design contractor will be familiar with the weather patterns on the island. This is important for two reasons. First, local contractors know when to plant certain shrubs, flowers, and grasses so they will thrive in the local climate. Second, local contractors know how to design landscapes that can withstand the strong winds and storms LBI often gets in the spring and summer.

Building Codes

A local contractor will be familiar with the permit process and building regulations on LBI. This can save you a lot of time and aggravation in the long run, as you won’t have to worry about getting permits or dealing with code violations.

Local Suppliers

Knowing what supplies are available locally and which suppliers have the best quality product will be second nature to an LBI landscape designer. They will have built relationships with the local suppliers, making it easier to obtain the items needed for your project.  

Local History & Trends

When planning a new outdoor space, you want to work with someone who knows the area well and can create something that is unique while also fitting in with the aesthetics of your neighborhood. An LBI landscape designer will know all about trends in design as well as the history of the area. The design created for your outdoor space won’t include anything out-of-character taking up yard space!

Personalized Client Service

A national landscape design company may have projects all over the state or even the country. An LBI landscape designer, on the other hand, works exclusively on the island and is more invested in their work and reputation. They want to ensure that you’re happy with the final product because they live and work in the same community as you. A local contractor will strive to create an outdoor space that fits your lifestyle and one that you will enjoy for years to come.
