Make sure your landscaping company does comparison shopping for the items you want. Sometimes different nurseries and suppliers will have different prices. It is better to know that your company is taking care of your needs.
Cheaper doesn’t always mean better, you have to remember you get what you pay for. Create a budget priority list even if you are not on a tight budget. This will keep your pocket-book and the landscape contractor on the same page. If you are on a tight budget this will allow you to break down the items you deem most important and work your way down over a period of time still getting your desired landscape.

What is the use in having a beautiful landscape area and patio with nothing to sit on and enjoy it. Outdoor living has become more and more popular. Remember to include the outdoor living essentials in your plans!
