Landscaping is like the dressing on a salad. It's okay without it, but really adds a lot to it when done well.  Having a professional landscaper manage your lawn and yard can really make the difference between an okay lawn with decent grass coverage and a really great one with a thick lush yard.   It's not always smart to go with the first landscaper near you that you find, but rather get at least 3 estimates from various professionals that can help you evaluate the process.

Whether it's putting in new edging, adding river rock, or hardscape features, a professional landscaper will be able to provide the right tools and materials to make sure the lawn and yard are well maintained.
