What Your Landscaping Contractor Will Do

installed sprinkler systemIf you’ll be installing a lawn sprinkler system, now is the time to do it (above photo) the last step before sod or seeding.

You may hire a sprinkler system specialist who cooperates with, but works independently of the landscaper.

Some landscapers also install sprinkler systems, and will offer a package deal.

If a landscaping contractor makes a pitch to install your sprinkler too, make sure that he is providing the parts and that his own employees are doing the installation labor. 

 

Otherwise he might just be subcontracting the job to someone else and marking up the price that you pay.


sodding is more expensive than seedingSodding is much more expensive than seeding.  But I’ve seen seeding jobs turn out really badly, with bare spots that just never seem to fill in.

If you think a comb-over looks ugly on a bald man’s head, wait till you see it on your lawn.

I use sod because I like an instant lawn and I hate grass comb-overs.

Sod and installation labor on a 100x150 foot lot will cost a few thousand green.
