Do you own a home? If you do, then you probably spend time worrying about how your yard looks. Not only does a well landscaped yard increase the value of your home, but it will also increase your enjoyment of your living space. If you have not spent any time planning the over all look of your yard, you might want to think about hiring the best landscapers in your area to give you some great garden design ideas. Here are a few facts you should know about sustainable lawn care services and the organic lawn care before you decide to hire someone.

Did you know that of the nearly 164 million homeowners in the United States, nearly half have gardened in the past 12 months? The other 50 or so percent have either hired people to do the landscaping work for them, or have just neglected to do anything with their lawn space at all. Those who have done their own gardening, and even those who have only hired people and never set foot in a plant nursery on their own, have been able to significantly increase the value of their homes.

Of those who have decided to undergo the garden duties of their home on their own, the vast majority are female, about 45 years old or older, and have at least some college education. These people are also among the higher percentage of at least partial home owners. If you own a home and are looking for what to look for in a landscaping company, then choosing one that fits all your needs, while meeting all your price points, is important.

Even if you do not have a yard, you can still have a garden in the smaller space you do have. Did you know that approximately 11 percent of American do container gardening?

Those who plan to grow edible plants in 2013 state their top 5 challenges are time, insect and disease control, wildlife control, irrigation, and the overall cost of plants and all the other materials involved. Part of the growth in the gardening industry, this includes container gardening for those who do not have space outdoors and those who choose to hire the best landscapers, can be attributed to First Lady Michelle Obama, and her penchant for gardening and healthy eating.
