Landscaping your own garden is no longer in the domain of the professional gardener. To want a beautiful garden is a natural instinct, we love to get closer to nature and the more we do in our garden the better we feel when we see the end result.
It has been said that “work in the home is never done.” This is perfectly true, no matter what you do there is always something else popping up to grab your attention. This is nowhere more obvious than in your garden. Once you have completed a task it tends to show up some other area which cries out for attention.
To employ a professional to do the planning and designing of your garden can be extremely expensive, and it is also fraught with danger. For instance will it be done exactly as you required or worse still will it be done in piecemeal fashion, where the hired person does not finish on time and you are having arguments whenever he actually does show up giving you a load of excuses why he did not show up over the past few days.
It seems they are always looking for more money than what the quoted estimate was originally to finish the job.
