Choosing a landscaping company in Calgary that listens to you and your needs regarding your landscaping can be a challenge. You may be torn between how much to spend and who to give your hard earned money to in exchange for a enjoyable landscape that lives up to your expectations.
Short Summers and less time to enjoy landscaping in Calgary
I have always steered away from encouraging my customers to spend, spend, spend when it comes to landscaping. Considering that you spend and an average of 4 months only per year enjoying your landscaping in Calgary, our short summers and rather lengthy winters dictate this, we need be realistic about what is sensible amount to spend. I am not saying your landscaping isn’t important, indeed it is hugely important and its important that you love the landscape environment you live in. I don’t think taking out a second mortgage on your home or canceling your winter vacation to pay for your elaborate landscaping makes sense.
Debt is dumb when it comes to landscaping
I cringe at Calgary Landscapers who offer financing for landscaping on their websites, wondering how it must feel to be in the hole 80,000 for something you cannot see or use for 8 months of the year. Call me empathetic, I have been accused of that in the past, but I believe homeowners in Calgary should create landscapes within their budgets, and ultimately they will enjoy their landscape far more if it is not causing them to lose sleep every time they review their bank balance. You can create a beautiful and practical landscape in Calgary for a moderate amount of money. There are landscapers in Calgary who can create a comfortable and unique landscape for you that you will enjoy for years to come, and they are as concerned about their conscience as they are about your landscape.
Stick to your budget when landscaping in Calgary
The key for home owners when it comes to landscaping is to know what you can afford before you start scheduling estimates. When you start to meet with landscapers in Calgary be sure to stick to your budget and if you feel you are being pressured or pushed in a direction that is over your head financially, its time to move on to another landscapers who is listening to your concerns and is willing to work within the constraints of your budget, after all you are the customer, its your home, and darn it your the one signing the cheque!
