The Benefits of Using A Professional Fort Myers Landscaper

This is the first installment of 11 Things You Need to Know Before Hiring a Landscaping Company which can also be downloaded as a free eBook.

If this is your first landscaping project, you might be tempted to save money by doing the work yourself or hiring an unlicensed contractor to help. The problem with this strategy is that you could be wasting both time and money with the wrong landscaping decisions. Sometimes fixing a “broken” landscape (removing dead shrubs, trees and more) can cost you more than you saved by doing the job yourself. Why could it cost you more?

Amateur landscapers usually have problems determining the right amount of sunlight and water that different flowers, shrubs and trees require. Another problem crops up during severe southwest Florida thunderstorms that can rip out new landscaping. In extreme scenarios, landscaping done near your house could cause damage to your foundation if the drainage isn’t properly planned.

If you’re really determined to do it yourself, do as much research as you can before putting anything in the ground. Don’t rely on employees at home improvement stores or local chains to be landscaping experts. They can give you general directions, but won’t be as knowledgeable as the true professionals. An expert Fort Myers landscaping company knows:

  • What works best in your local soil and climate
  • How to work with areas of shade and light
  • Which flowers and plants work together and which combinations to avoid
  • How to vary the distance between plants, accounting for their future growth and spreading roots11 Things You Need to Know Before Hiring a Landscaping Company
