Well, one way to look at it is like this. If you need your teeth fixed, most of us wouldn’t try and fix them or improve them ourselves. The same applies to your garden, and while it may seem counter intuitive, you can actually save more when you use a landscaper, than when you try and do it yourself (much of the time).
Even though we’ve all heard of the expression “measure twice, and cut once”, how many of us have had to return to the hardware store to replace a miss-cut piece of wood, or other home renovation item? Hardscape materials are often one of the biggest expenses in a garden design, and error reduction related to measurement and correct placement are all considerations that a professional landscaper will manage and cover. Not to mention, getting the right material, for the right price.
But if your hardscape needs aren’t at the top of your priority list, a reputable garden designers & landscaper also know where in your garden to place your much loved trees, shrubs and plants; knowing exactly where things should go based on the sun / shade factor, as well as giving a creative flare to the overall look of your garden.
Creativity is one of the factors often overlooked by consumers when committing to hiring a landscaper. An expert garden designer like those at Mori Gardens will use your needs, garden uses and interests through consultation to create a design you can bring to a landscaper for quoting and instillation or Mori Gardens can use to oversee your project with a recommended landscaper.
When using your ideas or design, great landscapers not only provide expertise, know how, and brawn, they also have a creative flair that can turn your property from an average garden design, to one which makes the neighbours ‘green’ with envy (if that’s your thing). They have years of experience working in a variety of different landscapes, and can probably offer something to your property that you may not even have thought about.
One of the real plusses to hiring a landscaper is the savings of time. In today’s hectic world, who couldn’t use a few more minutes or hours a week? On top of garden design and sheer heft, landscapers can maintain that newly installed garden to free up your precious time to do other ‘more important’ things, all at the same time as keeping your garden fresh looking and perfectly manicured.

Now, if all of those things haven’t convinced you to hire a landscaper for either your next garden project or the maintenance of property, let’s look at the return on investment (ROI) for landscaping your property.
In terms of hard numbers, if you put approximately 5 to 10 percent of your property value into landscaping, your return will be a conservative 150%, according to a variety of home renovation specialist including HGTV’s John Gidding.
It should come as no surprise that curb appeal has a value. Nor should it shock that in today’s real estate market, any advantage that you can get to increase the value of your property is one worth taking. The professional garden designer & landscaper, are more than a guy who cuts your lawn, they’re your property enhancement allies!
