What do you need to know about hard landscaping?

When it comes to landscaping an important thing to think about is design. If you want a relatively simple design done then you can save money that you would have spent on a professional designer. If you do this it will be crucial that you go over your plans with your tradesmen, not only to make sure that your design is followed but because they may be able to point out potential complications, as well as any planning permissions you need to seek for your project. A good idea is to look at some landscaping company websites of as you may be able to get ideas from some of the gardens they have worked on in the past. You can also save money by doing labouring and prep work yourself. For example, if you are planning to have hard landscaping done on your garden you can clear the area and remove any plants that you no longer want and then dispose of the waste yourself.

When it comes to the skilled aspects of hard landscaping it is not a good idea to scrimp if you do not have the experience to do jobs yourself. Certain aspects of hard landscaping can be difficult to get right for a non professional, such as levelling the ground or removing turf, and an uneven job can ruin the look of the finished project. Keep in mind that the area will need adequate access if your tradesmen need to bring in heavy equipment like diggers, or the job can end up taking much longer. Going back to your plan, make sure you have it firmly in place before getting a quote. Different services will quickly add up to several thousand pounds so know what you want, get a price breakdown for your quotes and compare them carefully before selecting your tradesmen.

Before making your final hire, it is important to make sure that your choice is adequately covered against accidental damage and liabilities. If you are hiring a designer or architect, or you want to have your site surveyed, ensure that the tradesman doing the job has public indemnity insurance in case they fail to label problems which end up costing you down the line.

Metin was not only hugely professional, brilliant at the job in hand but he also went the extra mile by popping out to B&Q (twice!) when we realised our TV bracket was not the correct one. He was fantastic. I have dealt with a lot of builders and handymen recently and Metin was the best of the best. Will definitely be using again.

I hired Millennium Interior Designers a Design & Build Contractors to refurbish a house in an up and coming area of East London. They are very professional and dedicated. The designer Sharrina is very talented. Perry

Great work from Metin on fixing a few things around the house, including installing TV bracket and shoe cabinets, trimming and sanding down door frames and installing new door frame floor separators. Metin was very professional and attentive to details, he advised on best course of action and left the areas cleaned after the work. Would definitely recommend him.

MID delivered us a fantastic service, to help us improve the looks of our flat. From the selection of colours, furnitures and flooring Sharrina was actively involved in every aspects of the job. I would recommend MID to anyone, who is after a genuine interior designer company to do an awesome job.
