Landscape Experts Provide Homeowners Low-cost Maintenance Tips

( February 28, 2012 --  Landscapers advise DIY homeowners on some landscaping and gardening tasks they can perform on their own in an extensive effort to save up on bills and expenses, but they set the advice: professional tasks are best left to trained and expert hands.

Nowadays with the economic and financial status of many a first world nation in unstable grounds, a number of middle and lower class income families have to resort to their own devices to make ends meet. One way to ensure some amount of savings is to go DIY on all aspects of home-keeping, maintenance, and repairs that can be handled without the need for trained expertise.

Depending on the locality and the native plants that grow there, homeowners may be able to leverage the local flora to lower their landscaping maintenance costs. During winter you won't have a lot of landscaping and gardening done, but after the thanksgiving season the costs might just stack up. Low-maintenance plants might help you save on those costs.

For the most part, landscapers are vying to plant low-maintenance crops and plants in a landscape but still get an aesthetically pleasing and practically effective finished product. Plants used require little water and fertilizer, either by nature or by installing measures such as moisture holding mulches and rich soil infused with compost, or both.

A typical $500 landscaping job that transforms 'good' or 'fair' landscaping into 'great' landscaping increases the value of the home by as much as 5%. It also affects equity. A 5% increase on the overall actual value of a home gives back a lot when the time comes that a homeowner might need to leverage propriety to gain financial capacity.

Fortunately, homeowners are finding landscaping to be a cost-effective home improvement investment. Seek specialized and expert advice from Seattle landscapers now.
