Specifically, what duties can a landscaper do to maintain your lawn and garden? If you hire a landscaper to maintain your yard, the professional is trained to do everything needed to keep your lawn looking good, that includes mowing your yard on a regular basis, raking the leaves when fall comes and even plowing snow when winter arrives. These are duties typically done by a groundskeeper or a greenskeeper, but landscapers often do these duties as well.
However, when it comes to creating and maintaining gardens, this is where landscapers shine. They are trained to create the perfect garden area for your home and business. They know what plants to use and what plants not to use. They are trained in soil and mulching, and they maintain the garden so that it looks good throughout the blooming times of the year. When you have a garden created and maintained by a landscaper, the garden stands out from gardens created by non-professionals.
A landscaper is someone who enjoys working outside and does not suffer from allergies related to working with gardens. They have been trained in the aesthetics of lawn and garden care and can create or improve what your garden for your home or business whether it be a garden that contains dirt, flowers and greenery, a rock garden, or a desert garden that consists of sand and desert plants.

Hiring a landscaper can run you into the thousands of dollars depending on what the landscaper is expected to do and if it is a home or a business.

A qualified landscaper will come to your home or business, look over the area, and give you an idea of what he or she can do for your property to enhance its curb appeal. Some landscapers also have computer systems that can allow you to get an idea of what the design will look like before it's finished.
