Let’s take a look at the top 3 landscaping myths and debunk them.

1. You don’t need a landscaping plan. A master plan is essential in developing an overall ‘installation strategy’ for your property. The master plan will take into consideration the goals and uses you anticipate for the property and the ways your family plans on using your new outdoor spaces.

2. Take the low bid. This practice is very commonplace, but it can cause a homeowner a lot of heartaches if you do not choose wisely. While saving some money initially may be a very attractive enticement, there are a few guidelines that should be taken into consideration when evaluating landscaping bids and we invite you to call us for more information on this topic.

3. You don’t need bed preparation. The soil in most areas requires amendments to allow the new plant material to get the nutrients they need to flourish. Make sure you spend the extra amount of money to have the proper soil amendments provided and tilled into your soil before planting.
