Are you overwhelmed by your yard? Maybe you have weeds as far as the eye can see. Maybe it looks like your lawn has gone for the California blond look this summer. Maybe you’re dreading another fall of flooding or your backyard stairs have rotted just enough to make you worried.

Follow our easy 5-step guide to begin tackling the landscape needs of your home!

  1. Make a list of the projects you would like to accomplish in order of priority. → You can do everything...just not at once!

  2. Be honest about your budget. → Not every project is necessarily out of your price range. Be clear about how much you are willing to spend and then work with your contractor to find the best solutions for your financial capacity.

  3. Get personal. → What do you want your yard to say about you? Are you creative? Do you want your yard to be a place of retreat? Landscaping is often the first thing people notice about a home.

  4. Make a timeline. → There’s nothing worse than a project dragging on forever and interrupting the flow of your work day or personal life. Be clear about your desired timeline in the first conversation you have with your contractor.

  5. Only hire a trusted contractor. → As mentioned in one of our previous posts, reach out to a contractor that comes highly recommended by friends or family. This initial establishment of trust will allow for a more efficient and creative working relationship, enabling you to communicate your vision to the contractor who will be making it become a reality!
