Dear Expert: How (and why) would you recommend I shop for the best landscaping price?
A. Choosing a professional landscaping firm is like going to a nice restaurant for a steak dinner. Instead of buying the steak at the grocery store and cooking it at home, you are willing to pay for the restaurant to cook it and serve the steak to you, accompanied by delicious side dishes and maybe even a nice bottle of wine. It’s a whole different experience. You wouldn’t expect the restaurant to charge you the same price as your local grocery store. The same is true of a good landscape professional. You will get a carefully-thought-out plan and an expert installation from people who specialize in their craft.
