4 Reasons To Hire a Professional Landscaper in Saskatoon


What if Cinderella’s castle was surrounded by disheveled hedges or wilting flowers? Would people think a princess lived there, or a cold-hearted beast?  What if Snow White’s cottage had a severely cracked and uneven patio with poor drainage? Where would Dopey set up his fire pit? (He always has it snuffed out by 11PM, btw).

You have to admit, when you picture a fairy tale house or castle you also picture the surrounding landscape. The same can be said when you look at home design magazines or websites featuring the coolest trends. They always include beautiful greenery: trees, flowers, shrubs. You should want that for your home! Your house is your castle and your landscaping (and hardscaping) should make an impression. At Kijenga, we can help! 


Whether you have a new build or want to spruce up the yard of your existing home, here are some reasons why you should consider a professional landscaper in Saskatoon and area:

  1. They’re more knowledgeable. Unless you’re a horticulturalist, these people will know more than you do. They know which plants and trees will thrive and will suit the design of your yard. They know which materials are the best quality and they have access to them. They also know how to design a yard which is functional but esthetically pleasing and emphasises your beautiful home. Do you know which type of tree to put in and where to plant it in order to make your house look bigger? If not, consider hiring a professional landscaper.
  2. Hassle-Free. Not only are you avoiding the hard labour of loading and hauling wheelbarrows full of dirt and sod, you can have the professionals design a yard which is low maintenance. Depending on your wants and needs, they can design something that is practically hassle free. You can also avoid having to buy tools you will only use once but store in your garage for the next 20 years. Bonus!
  3. Boost value. It is common knowledge that having a clean, well planned out landscape design can increase the value of your home. There’s the saying that first impressions are everything and the same goes for your home. When you pull up to the house of your dreams, the outside appearance makes a huge impact in your overall impression. You wouldn’t be impressed if the blind date you met was sloppy and had poor hygiene, would you?
  4. Avoid disaster. You know those beautiful trees you spent hours picking out, hauling in and planting this summer? You want them to be alive next year. A landscaper can help decide what should go where so that your hard work doesn’t wither away into nothing. They can also help you create a plan to stay within a budget.
