Landscaping is like the dressing on a salad. It's okay without it, but really adds a lot to it when done well.  Having a professional landscaper manage your lawn and yard can really make the difference between an okay lawn with decent grass coverage and a really great one with a thick lush yard.   It's not always smart to go with the first landscaper near you that you find, but rather get at least 3 estimates from various professionals that can help you evaluate the process.

Whether it's putting in new edging, adding river rock, or hardscape features, a professional landscaper will be able to provide the right tools and materials to make sure the lawn and yard are well maintained.

One thing you should do is protect newly planted trees, shrubs and perennials with a 2- to 3-inch layer of shredded bark, chopped leaves or other organic matter.
Adding mulch as a layer of insulation on top of the soil can prevent sudden changes in soil temperature that can hurt your plant's roots, says Stumer. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Christina W. of Detroit)
