What are the differences between
a gardener and a landscaper?
Most property owners have used the services of a landscape contractor. A professional gardener focuses on a very different level of plant care than a general landscaping service. A professional gardener has specialized training in areas such as botany, soil science, advanced plant identification, plant cultural requirements, arboriculture, advanced pruning techniques, as well as plant disease and insect identification. A general landscaper may have these skills but their focus is on basic upkeep of your property as a whole. This might include leaf and debris removal, cleaning, and mowing and fertilizing lawns. Can a gardener do these tasks as well? Yes -- but there's nothing like a lawn-care professional to take care of your lawn, for instance! Get the right person to do the right job.
Proper care of ground covers along with weeding, edging
and mulching gives your garden bed a professional look.
