Have you thought about what design would you want for your Calgary Landscape
After a busy day at work, isn't it exciting to come home where you can feel the refreshing relax stress free ambiance.
Nevertheless, creating your own backyard paradise is totally worth it, despite the short season.
Think of the echo of streaming water while sitting on your patio enjoying a warm Calgary Morning, with your family there by your side making the most of your amazing landscape.
Landscaping in Calgary is an interesting concept as we are subject to changeable weather at times. Most of us Calgary folks have gone outside in June only to discover a winter landscape has taken over our backyard.
When planning your Calgary Landscape the first thing to do is decide on your budget and then fit your needs to your budget. Good Landscapers can be hard to come by in Calgary and the price of a good landscaper can certainly be reflected in the quality of their work. Just ask to take a tour of their Calgary Landscapes.
An example of this is a few years ago I went to a quote in which a couple needed a giant retaining wall built in the Calgary area. They went ahead and got quotes from about 5 different landscapers. The quotes came in between $16,000.00 and $35,000.00. This is an absolutely enormous range for a landscaping project.
Furthermore, the landscape was not excavated properly as they didn't have the proper landscaping equipment to dig properly. Most Calgary Landscaping companies have in the very least a skid steer. This Calgary Landscaping job required a mini back hoe so that the grade could be excavated down to the clay. For most Calgary Gardener's clay is a nightmare, but in this case, the high levels of clay in Calgary is great sub base for building.
Total cost: the cost of the high bidder anyways, plus the better part of two beautiful Calgary summers wasted in Landscaping construction.
It can be tempting to hire the cheapest landscaper in Calgary, I can assure you that you are asking for trouble if you choose this route when hiring a landscaper.
There's a big variance in terms of quotations for the same Landscaping construction projects. This is inevitably true for the Calgary area. The prospering economy that Calgary saw in recent years has made it very easy for inexperienced landscapers to enter the market.
Consequently the Calgary couple picked the cheap landscaping quote. They ended up getting a couple of kids who called themselves landscapers. The Landscaping project ended up taking way longer than it should have and the Calgary Couple spent most of that summer in a Landscaping Construction mess.
Now back to the couple from Calgary. The two landscapers build the landscape wall with shovels,they took almost all summer to build the landscape wall. Once they were finished all of the landscaping a rain storm hit and caused the wall to break apart.Imagine that,the kids forgot to account for drainage. The stability of the landscape wall paid the price.
Though damaged has been done, the Calgary couple were determined to rebuild even the cost became enormous. The Calgary folks spent a few thousand to un build the wall and then spent what it cost to hire a good landscaper in the first place.
Anyways, not to scare anybody, but make sure you do research into who you hire for your Calgary Landscaper project. Usually price is a good indicator of the quality of Landscape work one receives.
I wish you all the best in your new landscaping project. Make sure you enjoy those warm Calgary Summers to it's fullest!
