It’s true that there a specialties in the landscaping world, and it’s helpful to be clear about your needs when you begin looking for a Reno landscaper. Here’s what to keep in mind.
Understanding Landscape Specialties
While it would make sense that all landscapers provide similar services, that’s not always the case. The scope of your specific landscape project should dictate the type of landscaping company you use.
- Landscapers – These are the professionals who install new trees, plants, and shrubberies, replace or modify existing plants and materials, install sod, or put in new garden beds. In many instances, landscaping companies also offer maintenance service. During the summer, they’ll mow your law weekly and rake up leaves. In the fall and spring, they’ll perform seasonal lawn and landscaping services to prep your garden for hibernation or the new growing season.
- Landscape designers – If you want an entirely new landscape in your outdoor spaces, landscape designers are trained and qualified in the kind of design you need. They’ll provide a blueprint for your new landscape that includes balance, proportion, texture, colors, and unity.
- Landscape construction company – If your project involves big new hardscape features, like patios and walkways, pergolas, water features, fire pits, or an outdoor kitchen, a landscape construction company will have all the necessary licenses, bid limits, and experience for the job. It’s really important to understand that not all landscaping companies are landscape construction companies!
