Let Us Do The Dirty Work
Hiring a professional landscaper may seem like an unnecessary service, after all, gardening projects are fun and you will learn a lot if you design your yard on your own. However, maintaining a yard, no matter the size, requires a lot of time and dedication.
If the thought of taking on a yard project seems too daunting or proves to be far more work than anticipated, then it’s time to give your local professional landscaper a call. Felice Landscaping services the Long Island and Westchester County areas and our professional landscaping team take care of all the tasks and routine maintenance that comes with keeping an attractive property. Whether you have been considering tackling your yard on your own or hiring a professional lawn care team, consider the points below to help reach a decision.
Designing a garden entirely on your own is quite a project, more than some realize until they’ve begun. In addition to all the research, also plan on making several trips to the nursery, lifting heavy pavers, and lugging wheelbarrow after wheelbarrow load of dirt around your property. Backyard makeovers are time-consuming and can take months to complete with one or two people alone. Plus, it’s more than just about planting that one time, gardens require weekly upkeep throughout the year.
Hiring a professional landscaper means that we take on the dirty work (pun intended) and you can just sit back and enjoy your beautiful yard. We offer regular maintenance services throughout the year to ensure your yard looks great all the time.
This may seem like a pretty obvious statement, however, it’s important to note that our landscapers are licensed professionals with years of experience. We are a full-service landscaping company for residential and commercial clients. Further, we are members of the New York State Turf Association and our experienced team keeps up to date with new design trends, as well as laws and regulations.
Further, we can troubleshoot problems that may arise like leaking water irrigation systems, dry patches of grass, or poor drainage, problems you would probably have to pay to repair regardless. Lastly, we are knowledgeable of flowers that complement each other, thrive in our New York climate, and can make quick recommendations for plants and other features that will work well in your space.
The process is easy, we come and take a picture of your current yard in order to show you a digital rendering of what it can be along with optional full landscape designs.
Hiring a professional landscaper means that we also come with the right equipment to tackle challenging projects like building retaining walls, patios and decks. There are a lot of tools that go into a landscaping project that you would need to buy yourself or resource from a friend, including edgers, trimmers, power washers, and pruners.
This equipment can add up in cost and take up a lot of space in your garage or shed. A favorite among customers is our weed removal tools. That’s right, no more unsightly weeds building up in your garden after weeks of neglect.
While hiring a landscaping team may seem like a significant cost at first, consider the long term value, not to mention the time savings mentioned above. We already discussed the savings you’ll keep from not needing to purchase the right tools to care for your garden, but also consider regular costs like fertilizer, mulch, and tool sharpening.
DIY landscapers must also factor in the likelihood that they will make mistakes that must be corrected. By leaving the work to us, you won’t have to think about when you need to prune, hedge, or aerate the lawn. That’s our job.
Raise Property Value
One of the easiest and most affordable ways to add value to your home is to focus on the landscaping. In fact, according to a 2018 study performed by the National Association for Realtors, they concluded that lawn care would recover 267 percent of the estimated cost. The results also showed that standard lawn care services, overall landscape upgrade, hardscape upgrade, and landscape management services proved to be the top projects that appeal most to potential homebuyers.
Attract More Tenants
Though we’re told not to judge a book by its cover, a shabby landscape certainly deters apartment or office tenants. Many potential renters will make a decision about the fit based on the aesthetics of the building, and this includes the landscaping.
Investing in yard maintenance will attract higher quality and long term tenants. Since it also increases the property value, you can charge higher rent than competitors who have chosen not focus on landscaping.
Our landscape contractors can help you create the ideal property to attract the tenants you want, raise the property value, and save you time and money.
