Your #1 Las Vegas Landscaping Company

When hiring a contractor you need to ask questions. [/highlight_one]
The more you ask, the more (and better!) information you will gather. Also, if the contractor doesn’t seem too confident or seems vague in his answers you know that he is the wrong choice.

– Many contractors hire sales people and many of these sales people really don’t know how a landscape project work. Therefore, a lot of the information you give them can get lost before it even gets to the installation crew.

– Contractors must be licensed, bonded, insured AND be current with all licenses and licensing conditions in order to be able to give you an estimate or a proposal. You can search the Nevada State Contractors’ Board by clicking here.

– If a contractor’s ad or flyer does not contain the NV State Contractors’ Board License Number, they are probably NOT licensed.

– You should always hire the contractor you feel most comfortable with.

– Prices for the same project are literally “all over the place“. Shop around, get a second or third opinion.

– If a contractor is not paid in full within a certain time frame, he is legally allowed to put a “Mechanic’s Lien” on your home. He can also foreclose on the home (in certain cases).

– Many contractors use cheaper materials to save a few bucks. We would rather spend the extra $20, ensuring quality of work.

– There generally is no reason to ask for a deposit for a project that costs less than $5000, unless unless sub contractors need to be paid or synthetic turf needs to be purchased.

– I have spoken with owners of other landscape companies and the number one thing that I can’t stand is “extras”.
Many owners just love the extras. They will charge for every little thing. We try – to the best of our ability – NOT to charge for extras. If you want to add plants or trees that is certainly an extra we will charge you for, but for the most part we do not charge for the little things.

Keeping Everything Together

Now that all four solutions for a backyard water feature have been discussed, the only necessary factor left is setting around the chosen water feature. Plants look extremely well next to pools, waterfalls, ponds, and even fountains. Plants make a yard with a water feature look more tropical and make the water feature stand out the best.

Not only do plants highlight the beauty of your yard, but trees such as simple palm trees also add a sense of being tropical to your yard. Plants need irrigation repair and there are so many landscaping and maintenance companies willing to help you.

Furthermore, irrigation repair is a part of most landscaping companies in the valley and they are experienced so there is no worry when they are taking care of your plants in your yard.

In conclusion, waterfalls, pools, ponds, and fountains are the top 4 backyard outdoor water features that will enhance the overall beauty of your yard. Contact us if you want to learn more about backyard water features.

About the Author

I am currently 16 years old. I was placed into an education that took on reading and writing from a young age and focused on it for all these years. Writing has always seemed exciting and exhilarating for me. No matter the difficulty that I have faced, I always wanted to learn how to write better and make more progress in this field. My father is the owner of Cacti Landscapes and I have started to complete some work for him. Primarily, I started off by writing for my dad’s reviews and learned through this process. As time went on, I started to write more and more for my father’s company. I recently wrote the blog of “How to Make a Zen Garden” and am going to continue to produce blogs and work for my father’s enterprise. Because of my father’s intuition, I started college at the age of 15. I am in Bishop Gorman High School, Community College and working for my father. But for fun, my favorite hobby is golf and I will always enjoy the phenomenal sport.
