What Makes a Landscape Construction Company Different than a Landscaper?


When most people have a project in mind for their outdoor space, they look online for a landscaper to do the job. That’s not a bad idea, but they’ll probably find a bunch of companies that won’t necessarily offer the services they need. Finding the right landscape company starts with determining need. Do you need a landscape construction company, and not just a landscaper? Here’s what sets them apart.

Designer vs. Construction

A landscape designer typically has no formal training or education requirement, though that’s not always the case. In many instances, a general landscaper works on small projects of the garden variety. For some projects, that may not be enough.

A landscape construction company is made up of contractors, or builders. They can build and install architectural elements like water features, rock features, patio covers, and irrigation. Here in Reno and Sparks, that’s what Harris Landscape Construction does.

HLC is a licensed, insured landscaping company with five separate licenses for landscape construction. We maintain close relationships with landscape architects to serve as a one-stop shop for your outdoor space needs.

When you contact Harris Landscape Construction for your project, our residential landscaping services include: sod, rock walls, water features, patio covers, free-standing shade structure, fire pits and fireplaces, decks, pavers, outdoor kitchens, outdoor lighting systems, irrigation, and more. From start to finish, we’ll work with you to create an outdoor space that suits your budget and your lifestyle.

There is no fee for an initial consultation, and if you have project in mind, we’re excited to hear about it.

What Kind of Company Does Your Project Need?

While a general landscaper may be ideal for routine lawn and garden maintenance, it’s best to leave big landscaping projects to the experts. For large-scale outdoor projects, contact Harris Landscape Construction today.
