Landscaping is a critical element of that thing we call “home.” If you own a house, everything around the outside of it is considered part of your landscaping, whether you like it or not. For some people, it can be a patch of weeds and for others, acres of pristine lawn and sculpted gardens. Landscaping is also everything in between, which is why landscaping projects today can generally cost anywhere from $5000 to over $100,000.

Now, if that leaves you scratching your head over what you should be spending on quality landscaping that will add value and beauty to your property and joy to your life, a general rule of thumb for homeowners is 10 percent of your house’s value. So, for example, if you live in a $350,000 home – or are building one — and are looking at investing in new landscaping, somewhere around $35,000 is about right.

Why are we telling you this? To point out that professional landscaping is an investment worth making – and protecting. That’s why you should work with a landscaping company that guarantees its work, regardless of project size. After all, if you’re going to spend decent money to have a professional design, install, and maintain your landscaping you should get peace-of-mind that it’s covered if something goes wrong that’s not your fault.

At Forever Green, we take great pride in the quality of our workmanship. Every patio, retaining wall, walkway, shrub bed, lawn, lighting installation, water feature and everything else we install is guaranteed. If anything fails, due to something we did (or didn’t do), we’ll fix it.

We’re now in our second decade of serving Central Massachusetts, and we’re as proud of the work we do today as we were the day we started. As licensed landscape contractors, we handle every aspect of your project from start to finish – all guaranteed. So don’t gamble your hard-earned money by working with a fly-by-night outfit that hedges on guaranteeing their work. If someone’s not willing to stand behind what they do, you should question why they’re doing it.
