Saving Money by Hiring a Professional Landscaper

If you are a home owner planning to renovate your landscaping but also wanting to save money, you are probably weighing the pros and cons of hiring a professional landscaper. After all, you know that having a beautiful property goes beyond simply sowing some grass and planting a few shrubs. While doing your own landscaping may save money to begin with, it may cost more in the long run. Here’s why.

Professional Landscaping Saves Time and Money in Maintenance

Every aspect in the design of your landscaping will determine the ongoing cost of time and money to maintain it. Soil prep, plant selection, ratio of grass to beds and patio areas, as well as their placement, will all have an impact on the amount of time and money you will spend maintaining them. You will spend much less money on fertilizers, for instance, if you have the right plants for your soil type and region. Hiring a professional landscaper will streamline the design process, minimize the time spent implementing the landscape remodel, and make your new landscaping easy and cost-effective to maintain.

Professional Landscaping Minimizes Future Landscaping Renovation

If you begin with a professional landscape for your property, chances are you will spend less time and money over time making modifications to your yard because you will already have in place the best type of grass, plants, shrubs and trees for your yard and region. You can enjoy adding to your yard over time, filling out the original landscaping design, but not reinventing the wheel every time you do so. Many homeowners waste time and money moving plants around, discarding some and planting new ones, in a trial-and-error method of landscaping their yard. We all know this is not the cheapest or most efficient way to accomplish anything. Ask your landscaper to help you make a long-term plan so that future investments in plants and other landscape elements, such as patios, fit into the overall professional design of your yard’s landscaping. You will save time and money over time by employing this method of yard planning and maintenance.

Professional Landscaping Increases Property Value

Finally, when it comes time to selling your property, professional landscaping increases the resell value of your home, possibly adding tens of thousands of dollars to what a buyer is willing to pay. First impressions are important to potential buyers. Having a well-maintained professional landscaping in place will increase the curb appeal that Realtors tell us is so vital to drawing a buyer to your home and getting the most out of your property. Don’t wait until you’re ready to sell to hire a professional landscaper. While interior renovations can go quickly out of style, your landscaping will mature over time, with trees, shrubs, and other plants filling out and becoming more beautiful over the years. And in the meantime, you have a lovely yard for your own enjoyment!
