To take up the challenge of landscaping your backyard, you must find landscape contractors. You can find contractors by word of mouth, internet, phone book or maybe a landscape contractor is working in your neighborhood. However you find the qualified landscape contractors, you must first make appointments for the landscape estimates. If they are easy to reach, make a quick appointment, come on time, have great landscaping references and your are impressed with the initial visit you are at least standing on solid ground. The next step is of course the cost. When comparing the costs of the various landscapers, make sure the estimate is apples to apples or everyone is bidding the same scope and size of the project. Did the contractor list all the materials, plants and sizes? If you are considering a paver patio or retaining wall is the square footage noted? Are they going to install your backyard components as per industry standards? Once you are comfortable with the price and feel good about the landscaper, you can then award them the contract. Don’t be pressured into the work. If you are pressured, think hard about your choices.
In many cases, a backyard landscaping may need a landscape design. Maybe your HOA insists upon a design. If the scope of the project has many facets, like patios, retaining walls, outdoor living areas, ponds or extensive plantings, getting a landscape design is a good idea.
