What does a landscape contractor do?


Landscaping contractors execute lawn, garden and hardscaping plans that have been drawn up by a landscape architect or designer. They may also provide design services on their own. After the landscape has been installed, landscape gardeners can make adjustments, maintain plantings, take care of weeds and pests, and perform other tasks to keep the scheme looking its best. A Illinois licensed landscape contractor should have detailed knowledge of River Forest, IL weather and climate trends or conditions, and he or she can choose plants and materials that are well-suited to the area. Residential landscape contractors also handle many of the same general duties as builders, including arranging for construction permits, hiring subcontractors and making sure that designs comply with Illinois building codes. Here are some related professionals and vendors to complement the work of landscape contractors: Landscape Architects & Landscape Designers, Garden & Landscape Supplies, Stone, Pavers & Concrete, Tree Services.
