Management of All Phases of Your Landscape Design and Construction Process in Amherst

Anytime you build a structure such as a pool, outbuilding, structural element, especially with plumbing and electrical involved, the local departments must be notified. Additionally if there are concerns about wetlands, setbacks, etc, particular attention needs to be paid to state and local regulations. Using a landscape architect to not only design, but manage your project has many benefits in addition to saving you money on the construction of the project by managing the competitive bid process, they also protect you from several costly mistakes such as poor workmanship, and lax paperwork processes that could cost you tens of or hundreds of thousands of dollars later on.
