My Landscaper says he can do the Pavers, Artificial Grass, Fire Pit, Everything for that matter. This sounds GREAT! Is this a good way to go, since it sounds like a 1-Stop-Shop?
Be very, very careful! There are a lot of great landscapers out there, however, there are also "others" as well too. It may seem like the easy way, however, your pocketbook may be paying the price. Make sure you have the landscaper breakdown your entire project into separate components so you can see exactly what everything is going to cost. Often times, you will find that they will try to hide extra costs here and there and when you have them break the project down, they are forced to divulge the actual costs. You might find that their irrigation price is great, but their Paver Price is 30 or 50% more than the Paver Contractors quoted. The old saying "Jack of All Trades, Master of None," is often true. If you have the choice to work with a company that specializes in the field of pavers, artificial grass, etc., it will behoove you to work directly with those companies since that is ALL they do and consequently, you will end up with a much better installation and SAVE a lot of money at the same time!
