If you’re looking in your backyard and dreaming about its potential, it may be hard to imagine how it can go from blank canvas to completed look. But that’s the science and the art of good design. A talented landscape designer or Registered Landscape Architect will create the plan that is essentially the blueprint of a total transformation.
Whether it’s a small planting project or a complete transformation of your backyard, finding the best landscape contractor for the job is of critical importance. You not only want someone you can trust, but someone that has the expertise and skill to tackle your project from start to finish.
#1. Substandard construction practices = Failed projects
Many landscape firms cut corners to lower their price. They get the job. Then 3 years later, your project starts to fall apart. We have dozens of photos and stories of projects that we have had to repair or redo properly because a landscape firm did substandard work or didn’t know proper construction techniques.
Last year we celebrated our 15th year in business. Over that time we’ve grown to become the premier hardscape design/build firm in the region. Reflecting on our experience, we thought it might be helpful to share some industry secrets that, if implemented, can save you a lot of aggravation and money!
One of the things I've instilled in my staff here at ETW that means a lot to all of us is what I call "The 5/10 Rule." It's a simple yet powerful rule.
We’ve been in the landscaping business now for 16 years and have built millions of dollars in hardscapes. One thing we are adamant about is making sure each and every project is built correctly to ensure it lasts a long time. Sometimes this means addressing issues that other landscape contractors just ignore.
