General contractors in Washington, DC are always on the lookout for new ways to improve your home’s aesthetic. Landscaping is no exception. While general contractors may not be widely considered landscaping experts, they offer plenty of exciting opportunities for homeowners to enhance their property. 

Below, we discuss the 5 major ways a general contractor can improve your outdoor facade and sharpen your home’s curb appeal. 

Introduce new materials to your yard. 

Landscaping opens up a whole new world of possibilities and points-of-interest in your yard. Nobody is more familiar with the array of potential materials and aesthetic avenues than your general contractor. Whether it be cobblestone, bluestone, crushed shells, or brick, your general contractor will offer professional insights and ensure all is installed properly. 

Add more dimensions and interest to your yard. 

Moving earth around requires heavy lifting. Doing it with purpose requires skill. Who better to trust than a general contractor to mold a piece of land into your dream landscape? Unlike a typical landscape designer, general contractors have a variety of tools and capabilities available to make your vision come to life. Under the umbrella of a single contractor like Protector Construction, projects are more efficient, cost-effective, and timely.  

Design and build unique structural elements. 

General contractors add tons of aesthetic value to your yard’s infrastructure. Did you ever dream of a gate to ornament the pathway leading to your front door? Or how about custom planters to grace your garden? Imagine sitting under a pergola wrapped in grapevines and sipping wine in the shade! When a contractor gets involved, the possibilities are limitless. 

Even if it’s not a free-standing structure, general contractors also excel in building patios, walkways, and walls that make any landscape multi-dimensional. 

Tune up gardens and bedlines throughout your yard. 

Just like any great piece of art, the small details make up the sum of the larger picture. Your landscape is certainly no exception to this rule. General contractors possess all of the tools required to clean up and maintain your gardens, while giving them the extra sparkle they need to thrive.

Here’s the aesthetic science: defined bedlines make gardens look more stately, refined, and elegant. Without these bold distinctions, the lawn and your garden mesh together like blurred lines. Trust in the talent and expertise of your local general contractor to distinguish your garden beds, and share expert opinions along the way. 

Professional project management and execution. 

A lot goes into completing even the smallest projects you undertake as a homeowner. The best general contractors run a tight ship, keeping budget and timeline in mind. Under the management of contractors like Protector Construction, clients can be confident that they are getting the highest value and level of expertise on every project. 

Potential clients surveying the market for a general contractor or landscape architect should consider the project management skills of the crew they’re hiring. The biggest risk a client may face is a poorly managed project that costs more time and money. As a rule of thumb, hire a contractor that will put your priorities first.
