BONUS TIP: Book ahead and save money!
Securing your spot before the season starts will make you save money vs the middle of the season when compagnies are extremely busy. When you hire a landscaping company before the season begins you always save more money because during the busiest time of the season prices may go up a little. Also, another way that is guaranteed to save you money is to book the year before.
If you know that you want to have your landscaping done but you only want to do it in 2 years, book it a year in advance and save money because everything goes up in price from year to year, so by securing your spot a year in advance you take full advantage of the current prices (and not prices that have gone up due to inflation which is about 5- 8% a year). You’re for sure going to save if you take our advice! 🙂
