How to Select the Perfect Landscape Company

When it comes to your home, you want it to look presentable. The outside front yard and backyard matter just as much, if not more as it gives your neighbors and passerbys a birds eye as to what the inside will look like as well. If your family is like many others, you likely don’t have a skilled landscaper and designer in your family or you might just be short on time.

When looking to hire a landscaping company to build your ideal back or front yard, there are several things you must keep in mind. Below is a list of points you should consider when hunting for a landscaping company in your area.

  • Even if you don’t have time to take care of your yard, you probably know how you want your lawn to look. You will want a landscape company who has experience with the style and plants you would like. Would you like a little garden area so you can do some work in the yard periodically? Do you have certain flowers in mind? Consider what kind of open space you want, maybe spend some time looking in magazines and driving around town to see if you can get pictures of what you would like.

Letting them know what the purpose will be of your yard as well as some key points you would like to incorporate will help the design team in creating you ideal oasis.

  • Have a budget in mind. How much you are willing to spend on your yard will narrow your search. Make sure the regular cost fits comfortably without your current means.
  • Take the time to talk to, interview and get quotes from several companies, even ones that you initially dismiss. There is no harm in seeing what creativity a company can spark with their ideas.
  • You need get started earlier rather than later. As we are in the peak of spring, you want to have everything lined up to make the most out of the summer season that is fast approaching.

If designing, developing and sculpting is not in your line of work, make sure to find a landscaping company that can take your very basic ideas and turn it into a beautiful yard. Contact Creative Atmospheres today at 949.302.8335 or by email at to set up your free consultation.
