Quite often Premier Constructed gets called in to rescue poor quality workmanship in reticulation, decorative concrete, paving, tiling and retaining. Other times it’s sub-par landscape design, broken components and incorrect installations. These issues often arise when landscaping builders don’t know what they are doing and use poor quality products and contractors to cut corners and save money.
So, how exactly do you know when it’s time to call Premier Constructed to rescue your landscape renovations? Here are some more specific examples to look out for.
Poor Quality Products & Substandard Workmanship
This is the most common problem we come across at rescue projects. Substandard work, done by inexperienced contractors leads to results that don’t reflect the agreed upon designs, or finished projects that have structural issues which will create problems in the future. These mistakes are usually done by contractors cutting corners in order to save money, sometimes for their clients, mostly for themselves. It’s important when choosing a landscaper to transform your space you don’t make your decision solely on cost. Consider the quality of the work the landscaper actually does. We at Premier Constructed choose to use the best products and a handful of trusted contractors to complete all our jobs.
Problems with Flooding and Drainage
A good contractor knows just how important installing a proper drainage is around a home or a commercial area. A poorly planned out drainage can have you waking up to a wall of water going through your front door after a heavy rain.
Your contractor shouldn’t be leaving anything that can potentially cause someone to trip and injure themselves. Some trip hazards you’ll want to look out for include fallen tree branches, unkempt tree roots, a heaving pavement and steps that have been designed to be too steep, slippery or bumpy.
You’ll want to make sure that your landscape lights are not too far apart nor too bright. Even more important is to ensure that the installed lights aren’t blinding motorists and pedestrians since this can lead to accidents.
Overgrown Trees and Shrubs
An untrimmed deadwood, falling tree limbs and overgrown branches – what do these things have in common? Well, for starters, all of these can cause injuries and property damages when left untouched.
Plus, depending on when they are planted, unkempt trees and shrubs can obstruct the visibility of passing motorists and pedestrians. You also wouldn’t want overgrown tree roots to ruin your neighbor’s pavement, causing you to pay for unwanted pavement repairs.
Certain floras ignite more easily than the others. Since Perth mostly enjoys hot and dry summers, you’ll want to avoid flammable plants. Your contractor shouldn’t be advising you to have fire prone plants near your home or any other structure. Examples of flammable plants include ornamental juniper, Leyland cypress, Italian cypress, rosemary, arborvitae, eucalyptus, and some ornamental grasses.
There are a number of things that can go wrong in a landscaping project, which is why it’s important that you only hire contractors who are trustworthy and reliable. Don’t be tempted by cheap deals and instead, look for a company that is transparent, honest, and committed to satisfying every customer.
