We recently completed a Phoenix landscape design which transformed our clients backyard into a spectacular place to spend time with family and friends. The design created an outdoor space which our clients can enjoy day & night. Our clients can truly skip the resort and enjoy their own beautiful Arizona backyard design! They now can have a “Staycation” in their own backyard!!
Look what we’ve been busy doing. . . creating Arizona landscape designs for our Phoenix clients! Check out a few of our more recent projects in Phoenix.
New construction has dropped off in virtually every region across the country. The Phoenix area and its surrounding communities have been some of the hardest hit areas with the downturn of the housing market. More and more homeowners are staying in their existing homes and seeking to renovate their backyard landscape and outdoor living space.
Hiring an Arizona professional landscape company that specializes in landscape renovations will be the most important decision a homeowner makes. While renovation projects may be smaller scale than new installations, they can also be more time-consuming and sometimes more challenging. Backyard renovation projects will quickly show the value an experienced landscape contractor brings to the table. Doing renovation work means taking more time to listen to the client. Renovation projects can be difficult because you’re often working with remaining structures. With renovation projects you often have to work with existing materials or work around an existing layout that makes the job more difficult to do. Landscape remodel projects require more forethought and planning. With landscape renovations, you can run into more logistical issues. The importance of having a professional landscape company design and perform a backyard renovation is vital to the success and warranty of the job.
Dream Retreats, an Arizona premier landscape company, will ensure a successful outcome to all of our backyard renovation projects. We’re an experienced landscape contractor with over 20 years of experience. The majority of our business over the past few years has been backyard landscape renovations. Renovation work challenges us to think outside the box and come up with a design and plan of attack on how to produce the outdoor living space the homeowner dream of. At Dream Retreats Landscape and Design we listen to the homeowner and make sure we’re on target with what the homeowner wants. We work one on one with each client from the design phase all the way until the job is complete. Sometimes homeowners want to do the work in phases. The first phase could be a landscape paver patio or paver pool deck. Another phase an Arizona outdoor kitchen complete with an outdoor bbq and backyard firepit. Still another phase could be an outdoor living space which could include a ramada, patio fireplace and seating area. We want to make sure that the renovations being made only make our clients happier with the property in the end. An Arizona backyard landscape renovation would offer “staycations” in your own backyard “Dream
Are you getting ready to tackle a large landscape design and installation project? If the type of work you need done requires a licensed landscape contractor, does the landscape contractor you are looking at have a license?
Not having a valid license is a BIG red flag. Many “contractors” refuse to get licensed because they do not want to operate a legitimate business, which requires hiring legal employees, paying workers compensation and other insurance, charging and paying sales taxes or reporting such income to the IRS. They operate under the table and may often make a deal with you if you pay them cash. This type of attitude and mentality is a reflection of their follow through with your job. Would you trust them to stand behind their work? How can you file a complaint if something goes wrong? (You can’t).
That is why Dream Retreats Landscape is a Licensed Arizona Landscape Contractor and is registered both with the BBB and with the Arizona Registrar of Contractors. Dream Retreats Landscape is an Accredited Business with an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau.
You need to check to see if the license is in good standing for any landscape contractor that you are looking to hire. Do they have any complaints? If so, were they resolved? Check to verify that the person who gave you their license is the same as that indicated with the state records. We want to make sure all of our clients are protected, which is why we encourage all of our landscape design clients to contact the state agency that has our license on record.
