5 Benefits of Working With Professional Landscaping Services
  • Did you know that the homeownership rate for Canada is almost 70 percent? Many of these homes include front and backyards with grass, trees, and other forms of landscaping. Having a well-developed landscape can make your home more enjoyable for you or a potential buyer.

    While you can perform basic maintenance yourself, using professional landscaping services to handle the more complex designs is a wise decision. Read on to learn more about the benefits of using a professional landscaper.

    1. Increase Your Home's Resale Value

    While the percentage increase varies depending on multiple factors, using a professional landscaper will increase your home's resale value. The words curb appeal don't just apply to the house but also to the landscaping. Several studies have found that specific outdoor features are the most beneficial. Some of these include:
  • Landscape lighting
  • Fire features
  • Patio
  • Planters
  • Flowering shrubs

2. Avoid Damage to Existing Landscape

While it is tempting and cheaper to do simple landscape yourself or to hire the neighbour's teenager, it can be costly if something is damaged. It can also be dangerous, as lawnmowers, trimmers, and other tools can cause injuries if mishandled.

Using a professional landscaping company ensures that the job will be done properly without any damage to the existing landscape or your house. These individuals are experienced with the equipment and understand safe-handling practices. Professional companies typically carry insurance to cover not just the work they perform but also any major damage that results from an employee.

3. Professional Insight

A professional landscaper possesses industry knowledge that isn't commonplace. For example, if you are considering selling your home, these professionals may be aware of local and national trends that will add the most value. They can also provide you with tips on upkeep and general maintenance that you can perform.

4. Ability to Perform Major Projects

While you can plant items like small flower bushes, you may not trust yourself with putting in a koi pond or large tree. Projects like those require a professional landscaping company with experience and tools to purchase goods, transport, and install.

5. Offer A Variety of Services and Products

While many home goods stores offer the basics, like turf and mulch, they don't offer more specific goods and services. If you want a certain type of tree or project installed, a professional company is your best bet.

What Else to Look For With Professional Landscaping Services?

Do your research before hiring a landscaping company. Besides carrying insurance, a company should be experienced with the type of work you are hiring them to perform. You should ask around, especially with people who have landscaping you like. There are professional certifications available in different areas of landscaping, including lawn care, horticulture, and grounds maintenance, that you could look for in a prospective company.
