Reasons to Hire a Landscaper
I'd like to talk about a few simple reasons why you should consider hiring a landscaper for your yard. Factors that should be placed under consideration when hiring a landscaper are your quality of life, the value of time & Investment. Many people do find it delightful to spend time in their garden pulling weeds, planting flowers, spreading mulch, and just having general care for their yard. Some may even perceive it as a meditative practice. As I won't take away from the benefits of tending to your garden, I would like to bring up a few of the reasons to hiring a landscaper for doing the work for you. Especially for homeowners living in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
- Save time/ Unsafe exposure to the heat:
Living in Albuquerque New Mexico for almost my entire life, I've grown accustomed to the heat. When it's 90 degrees outside, it doesn't seem to bother me so much. However, with the increase of global warming taking effect, the heat is increasingly climbing to levels never seen before for long periods of time. Long exposure to the sun & heat while being outside landscaping can take a toll on your body. Without being properly hydrated, you run the risk of dehydration and even fainting. Hiring a landscaper can prevent you from long, unsafe exposure to the heat. We recommend hiring a landscaper for the quite serious risk you run for being outside for too long. Not to mention the amount of time saved throughout your week by having a professional, like ourselves to finish the job.
- Tasks become more strenuous the older you get:
Landscaping jobs require being in relatively good shape. Being able to bend down, push a lawnmower for an extended period of time, move heavy rocks & stone to create a retaining wall. These tasks can take a toll on the body especially for those who elderly. Another reason to consider hiring a landscaper is to prevent strenuous pain in yourself. There are reportedly 196 injuries between the years 2003 & 2006 with 1 death. Save yourself the time & energy & health by simply hiring a professional landscaping company.
- They are equipped for the job:
Landscaping requires not only your bare hands, but you need the right tools to landscape properly. The basic tools are a shovel, lawn mower, and maybe a pair of gloves. Those items I'm certain everyone has, but what about a weedwhacker? Not everyone carries a woodchipper in their tool shed. A leaf blower, grass trimmer, pruning shears, hedge trimmer, and lawn aerator are items not too commonly around everyone shed. But landscapers have all the necessary tools to bring your lawn looking in great shape. Leave it to the experts to bring your lawn in the best shape possible, because let's face it. They have the tools to do so!
- Adds value to the property:
Not many people think of this one but it's true. A well maintain and lush garden will add value to your property. It brings curb appeal to your house that every new home buyer is willing to pay more for. A professional landscaper who knows what looks good can add that extra "spark" to make home buyers fall in love with your property. Some studies have shown that an investment into your home garden can increase the home value by as much as 15%. The average home price in Albuquerque is $270,000. By that math, investing in a landscaper to take care, maintain and design your garden can increase the value of the home by $40,000!
