If you flip through cable television, you will likely see several shows about homes, curb appeal, and things you can do it increase your home’s value. One of the easiest things that a homeowner can do to drastically improve curb appeal is to hire a landscape company that is skilled with hardscape and landscape and has a history of providing outstanding repair services.
Perhaps you are wondering “what is a landscape repair company”? Companies specializing in landscape repair usually specialize in maintaining or fixing a home’s hardscape. Hardscape refers to anything along the lines of brick pavers, retaining walls, grill enclosures, etc.
Investing in hardscape is a wonderful way to convert your home into a backyard oasis. Unfortunately, some homeowners allow the elements to impact their hardscape without taking corrective action, which can detract from the home’s appearance and present safety issues. Here are the 3 main reasons to hire a landscape repair company:
1. Hardscape and landscape can be a sizable investment. Don’t be fooled into thinking that once the shrubs and trees are planted, irrigation systems are installed, and the landscape company pulls away from your home that you have no obligation to maintain the newly installed landscape. In order to maximize growth and potential, shrubs, trees, and flowers need to be pruned and maintained. A landscape repair contractor can provide that service to you, which keeps your yard looking even more beautiful than the day the landscaping was installed.
2. Patios, walkways, and retaining walls are susceptible to shifting over time. These shifts can result in a sunken brick (or more) which not only weakens the structural integrity of the retaining wall, patio, or walkway, it can also present a safety concern. Weakened retaining walls are capable of collapsing, which can cause serious problems or injury. Brick pavers that pop up due to thaw/freeze cycles can create a tripping hazard and for these reasons, it is prudent to have your walkways, patios, and retaining walls examined annually by experiences professionals who can anticipate problems and take corrective action.
3. It is far less expensive to have a landscape repair company correct a small problem before it gains momentum and causes catastrophe. Just like anything else, preventative measures are usually far cheaper than total repair or replacement to your landscape or hardscape.
