Landscapers provide a wide range of services, including general garden maintenance, spring and fall yard clean up, and help designing a new flower garden. The cost will vary depending on the size and scope of the job.
Types of Landscaping Professionals:
Many landscapers focus on a service and specialty. Based on the scope of your project, here’s a breakdown of the different types of landscape professionals:
You can hire a residential landscaper on short notice for small yard projects such as lawn care and garden maintenance.
With higher rates than a residential contractor, a commercial landscaper can help with larger yard projects. They have both the expertise and equipment to tackle those landscaping jobs that require more extensive planning and design.
Architects have been trained in design, land grading and drainage, and engineering. With an hourly rate of up to $150 per hour, landscape architects can help you plan your entire residential yard design.
A designer will help you decide on the best plant choices to bring balance and beauty to your yard. Charging an hourly rate up to $150 per hour, landscape designers have the expertise to plan the layout and design of your garden and make the most of your outdoor space.
Tips to Find the Right Landscaping Contractor
Once you’ve decided to hire a landscaper, finding the right one for the job takes a bit of research.
Start by asking these questions:
- What landscaping services do you provide?
- Are you insured and licensed?
- Are you able to handle the scope of the project?
- Can you provide me with a written estimate of the cost and expected duration to complete the job?
- Will you do the entire job yourself or hire other contractors?
- Do you have any ideas and recommendations?
- Can I save money with a maintenance package and bundling services?
