DIY gardens

 

All designers rely on the skills of landscape contractors to implement their ideas. A good contractor is essential for reasons that should be apparent from the small selection of building techniques illustrated below. In addition to hard landscape, contractors are required to carry out a variety of horticultural and arboricultural tasks. Often, several contractors can be employed on one project, requiring the designer to have a high degree of project management skills.
