Why Let Poor Installation Ruin a Superior Product?


When you choose landscaping materials, probably the first thing on your mind is how they will look after you install them. That stone fence you’ve been wanting will look excellent, right? But many homeowners discover that they just don’t have the expertise needed to install it properly. What’s even worse is that some homeowners do not discover this until it is much too late.

Quality Does Matter, but Installation Matters More

If you’ve purchased a high quality product and installed it incorrectly, it doesn’t matter how high quality the product was. Landscaping materials are made for very specific uses, but they can’t do what they were designed to do if you don’t install them properly. For example, building a retaining wall may seem like a simple project of stacking stones, but it is much more than that. When you need a retaining wall to hold back the water, you don’t want to be wondering if the work you’ve done will hold. A professional who has the expertise in building retaining walls will make sure that it gets done properly so that you don’t have to worry about water seeping through.

Recognising a True Professional

Of course many homeowners have a difficult time telling a true professional from someone who doesn’t know anything more about proper landscaping installation than they do.
But there are a few signs that will tell you a lot about the company.

For example:

  • Do they have the proper equipment for the job? Is the equipment in good working order?
  • Can you get a straight answer when you ask them a direct question?
  • Do they seem comfortable giving you advice about landscaping?
  • Are they insured properly?
  • Do they have the correct licensing and registration in place?

Professionals who don’t provide satisfactory answers to these questions may not be the real deal and probably can’t handle installation any better than you can. In that case, you’re better off saving the money and doing it yourself. However, a professional who does have everything in line is your best option because you know that it will be done correctly in a timely fashion.
