Check Your Drainage
Check the area you want landscaped for slopes, swampy spots and where the snow tends to go when it melts. Take a few pictures – even make a few drawings – and you’ll highlight some of the space’s drainage issues. That makes it much easier for us to head off any issues during the job.
Keep Your Landscape Clean
We’re great at site cleanup . . . but we prefer to do it after the job. Get rid of debris, keep the snow from piling up too high and you’ll make starting the job much easier. Don’t forget to pay special attention to edge areas (such as between the home and lawn) where unwanted much can accumulate.
Look Into Permits, Pipes and Cables
Nobody likes being surprised by buried pipes and cables that derail landscaping plans – or by obscure bylaws that force you to make changes after you’ve carefully laid out your vision for the space. Do yourself a favor and figure it all out ahead of time.
Measure Your Space
This one’s pretty basic. Measure the dimensions of the area you want landscaped! The more accurate your measurements are, the better our estimates.

Winter may make the season seem distant, but before you know it, 2010 will bring it back – and it’ll be busy. Contact us to make arrangements in advance and put yourself at the front of the line!
