Choosing to Do-It-Yourself
Do-it-yourself landscaping has grown in popularity as business owners try to save money. But, when it comes to large outdoor paving projects, you want efficiency and expertise. DIY projects often take much longer and don’t provide the same flawless finish as professional work. Avoid disrupting your business—leave the paving to the pros.
Not Developing a Comprehensive Design Plan
Beautiful landscaping begins with precise design. Whether you’re installing interlocked patio pavers or adding walkways, you need to map out your project. Commercial landscape contractors will draft a design that meets your needs and budget. Without a concrete plan, it’s unlikely you’ll get the results you want.
Hiring a Landscaping Company Based Solely on the Pavers’ Cost
Of course, it’s important to choose cost-effective solutions. But hiring a company based only on what they quote you as a paver cost is a surefire way to be disappointed. For one thing, cheap concrete or brick pavers won’t last without high-quality materials. For another, estimates often reflect the quality of the job. Choosing the lowest estimate might not get you the results you crave. It’s important to balance the right materials and expertise with the cost of a paving project.
