1. Do you provide a free initial consultation?
Absolutely! At Lisk, we understand the importance of finding a landscape contractor you’re comfortable with, so we’re happy to offer a comprehensive consultation at no cost to you.
2. What services fall under the category of ‘landscaping’?
The ‘landscape’ category is so generalized that it’s often difficult to pinpoint what it encompasses. Generally, landscaping is meant to improve the appearance of an area of land by planting trees, shrubs or grass; or by altering ground contours (i.e. – mulching, plant design & installation, etc.).
3. What are the differences between hardscaping and softscaping? How do these techniques enhance my home’s exterior?
These two terms are exactly as they sound. ‘Softscaping’ is planting and mulching, whereas ‘hardscaping’ refers to pavers, retaining walls, rock boulders, natural stone, etc. These two entities complement one another in such a brilliant fashion that your home will shine, even at night!
4. Why should I hire a professional to handle my landscape design and construction?
Hiring the Lisk Landscape team is a smart choice for your home. Using our honed artistic vision, we’re capable of designing your landscape—and making it a reality. Vision is everything in constructing incredible landscapes, and we are one of the few companies offering both artistic vision and precision craftsmanship.
5. What are the benefits of professional landscaping, and why should I consider it for my home?
Landscaping enhances your home’s curb appeal and value. Landscaping can add approximately 7 to 15 percent to your home value, and colorful landscaping brings you—and your neighbors—enjoyment every day. Landscaping can return 100 to 200 percent of your investment when it comes time to sell, while experts report that a swimming pool returns only 20 to 50 percent of your investment. Mature landscaping can also lower energy costs, dampen noise and help reduce air pollution.
6. How much should I invest in my home’s landscaping?
Naturally, this question ultimately depends on what you, the customer, are looking for. However, according to industry professionals, the ideal amount to invest in a landscape project is 20 to 25 percent of your home value.
7. What should I expect as a Lisk Landscape client?
From the moment you make the wise decision to contact Lisk Landscape concerning your landscape/hardscape needs, you can expect to be welcomed with an unmatched level of professionalism. After scheduling an appointment for your initial consultation, we’ll meet with you to discuss the project that lies ahead. Once all the particulars are worked out and finalized, we’re ready to do what we do best: provide great service in a timely fashion.
8. I can mow and water the lawn myself. Why should I hire a landscape maintenance provider?
With Lisk, you no longer carry the worry of coming home from one tiring job to another one. These days, most people are very busy—and simply don’t have the time to take care of their yard maintenance. Additionally, we put you on a customizable schedule to assure that your yard looks spectacular at all times.
9. What size/type of landscape jobs do you handle?
The type of landscape projects we handle can vary in many ways. Whether the project is residential or commercial, we are fully capable of spearheading projects that include: complete outdoor renovations, custom outdoor living spaces & kitchens, wondrous water features, accentuating landscape lighting, and much more! When it comes to a landscape or hardscape project, there is very little we can’t handle.
10. Do you offer a warranty for your work?
At Lisk Landscape, it’s our goal to ensure your satisfaction. We offer clients a 3-year warranty on most hardscaping installations, and most hardscaping manufacturers provide a lifetime warranty. Lisk also offers a comprehensive 1-year warranty for installed plant material with a sprinkler system, and a 30-day warranty for installed plant material without a sprinkler system
