Q.Could You Pls Advise How I Might Find A Knowledgeable, Skilled Person To Turn My Yard Into A Beautiful Garden?

Zone zone 7b | Anonymous added on December 28, 2020 | Answered

I recently moved into a new home (1st time owner) and I have NO outdoor skills. I mean NONE. I have a pretty sizable and odd shaped yard that I would love to turn into something beautiful. Could you please point me in the right direction on where to start? How do you know who’s good? How do you know you aren’t getting ripped off?

I would suggest starting with the local extension office for advice. Also, ask anyone you know who might have used a gardening service. And, if you have a favorite nursery, they usually offer landscape services or could recommend someone. If you have gardening clubs in town, some of the members may have used someone. Also, builder associations may have certain landscapers they work with and recommend. Drive around and look for a yard you really admire. Stop and ask the homeowner if they hired anyone. Good luck!
