Landscaping is one of the best things you can do to maintain and beautify your home, yet it’s something that many homeowners are reluctant to commit to. Even though a landscaper can simplify and improve your home life, many people don’t think to hire them.
At ABC Scapes, we know just how much a great landscaper can make or break a home. If you’re having doubts about hiring landscapers, put those doubts to rest. Let us debunk the top three reasons why people don’t hire landscapers.
The biggest reason why so many homeowners hesitate to get a landscaper is because they’re afraid of how much it’s going to cost. The truth is that getting a regular landscaper is an expense, but it is an expense that can pay off for you in the long run.
You’ve heard the saying “Time is money”. That’s one of the biggest benefits that a landscaper can give you. Landscaping is a very time intensive activity. Getting a professional to do it will free you up to focus on your work, or on relaxing after a day’s work. Do you have a hobby or freelance work that you never seem to find enough time to do? By having someone else do your yard work, you can redirect your efforts towards advancing your future and bettering yourself.
Great landscapers also improve the curb appeal of your home. If you plan on selling your house in the future, having great curb appeal is CRUCIAL. A beautifully maintained landscape is a major selling point: A poorly cared for and designed one is a giant Keep-Away sign for prospective buyers.
For a lot of folks, landscaping is a relaxing activity. Gardening gives them some time outdoors, some exercise, and peace of mind. But getting a landscaper doesn’t mean that you have to give up your green thumb. A landscaper focuses on whatever you need done. If you’ve got a herb garden you want to keep working on on your own, you can hire a landscaper to work on your trees or mow your lawn. You can focus on the landscaping that you WANT to do, and they can handle everything else.
It’s also important to keep in mind that even the most talented home gardeners will come across landscaping situations that they may not be equipped to deal with. A landscaper can spot signs of trouble and address them before they get worse. Perhaps your landscape is being assailed by pests or critters? Maybe you planted the wrong plant in your garden and it’s killing its leafy neighbors? Getting a professional to come in and apply their keen eye and training to your landscape can improve your own D.I.Y. efforts, not hamper them.

A lot of people don’t hire landscapers simply because they don’t know any landscapers in their area. It can be hard to find a reliable, trustworthy and skilled landscaper, especially if you don’t know anyone who can refer one to you. Finding the right landscaper is important: This is someone whom you’re entrusting a part of your home too. The wrong person could end up destroying your plants and ruining your soil if they don’t know what they’re doing. Landscaping is more than just pruning branches and cutting grass: It involves having a broad and comprehensive knowledge of plant life, soil, and local ecosystems. A great landscaper has a tradesman’s hands, a designer’s eyes, an architect’s mind and an athlete’s determination. Finding someone in your area who meets those qualifications can be a challenge.
Luckily the landscapers at ABC Scapes can rise to that challenge. Our landscapers are passionate about their work and know their craft inside and out.
