Do landscape contractors just cut grass? No, that’s the simple answer to that question. Proper landscape contractors are going to be able to help you create unique outdoor areas in your home or any commercial building for that matter. Landscape contractors have different ways that they are going to be able to make any area unique. Let’s say for example that you have a home with a large garden whether it be the front yard or backyard. Essentially it’s currently just a big grassy area. That’s a canvas for a landscape contractor to really show what they can do.

What they can do is create for example paths with paving stones so that you can walk across without having to get your feet muddy. Maybe you want to add a flower garden, or you’re looking to plant trees in the area. What landscape contractor can help you design your outdoors in a way that anything that you add will compliment what’s already there. So that you’re not just aimlessly just adding elements to an outdoor without a clear idea in mind.

Working With A Landscaping Contractor That Can Truly Provide Options For You

We do have to make a distinction here between people who are gardeners, and can do a fine job mowing lawns, and even pruning trees or plants. They are not necessarily landscape contractors, one of the biggest differences between the two is the fact that landscape contractors are going to be able to handle hardscapes and not just grass and plants. When it comes to hardscapes what you’re usually looking for is a sense of harmony between the different types of surfaces. Just like you don’t want to have a large blob of grass, you probably don’t want to have your home surrounded by a blob of concrete.

Hardscapes can be anything from retaining walls to stone pavers on the grass, all the way to things like decks or patios. The list can go on and on. That’s why it’s important to work with a landscaping contractor that’s going to be able to provide options for you. At the end of the day, it’s not like you have to add a retaining wall with a flower garden on top or whatever it may be. What’s more important is that you work with someone who in a sense, can provide that creative freedom for you to be able to pick and choose what you want. That’s truly what landscape contractors do.

Can A Landscape Contractor Handle Upkeep Needs?      

This is certainly one of the misconceptions that people have about landscape contractors. Yes, they can help you create unique surfaces like we’ve been talking about. At the same time, you can also count on them to help you with the upkeep of these areas. With landscaping, it’s not enough to create something and have it look great for a couple of days. The idea is to be able to keep the area looking its best for as long as possible, and that’s exactly what the guys at Project Landscape can help you achieve.
