Tips for Working with Landscape Contractors for Ecologically-Sound Installations

March 2, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


As designers, you have probably experienced “dream projects” and a few “nightmare projects” as well. Often the difference between the two is effective communication – or the lack of it – between the designer and the landscape contractor. With adequate planning and careful communication, challenges are addressed in a timely and cost-effective manner and other problems are avoided altogether. Join our panel of landscape professionals for an enlightening discussion on how to improve communications with landscape contractors. By developing effective designer-contractor partnerships, you could reduce your stress this season and improve your bottom line.
