DIY Landscaping vs. Professional Landscape Design

Are you looking to revamp your lawn, upgrade your yard, and spruce up your garden? When undertaking such a project, it may be tempting to take the do-it-yourself route. After all, you know what your vision for your landscape is, and you want to save money by handling it on your own. However, when it comes to landscaping, there’s a major difference between a DIY-er and a professional landscape design expert, like those of us at Evergreen Gene’s. Before you go grabbing for your shovel and bag of mulch, consider hiring a professional landscape designer to help the best version of your vision shine through.

For one thing, a professional landscape design expert will have access to the many specialized tools and equipment needed to properly take care of your lawn. While you may have thought the DIY route was the less expensive one, consider that you might end up buying many of these tools yourself, only to use them a few times before your project is completed. That can rack up a lot of money that could be better spent on a professional landscaper.

Another benefit professional landscape designers bring to the table is their artistic expertise. You may have a clear picture in your head of what you want for your yard, but it may not be feasible to carry out, or you may just not quite know how to go about it. For the professional landscape design expert, envisioning the most creative and effective way to use a space is their job! Allow them to recommend new ideas, or see how they plan to interpret your initial vision.

Finally, if there’s one thing professional landscapers know, it’s their products. Are you wondering whether certain flowers, shrubs, or trees will grow well and last long in your climate and environment? Professional landscape design experts don’t have to wonder- they already know! and they can make sure that your yard is filled with sustainable, beautiful plants.
