Are there any reputable landscaping contractors that service the northern Virginia area (22153) who can bill in payments or divide total cost over monthly installments? I really need some work done for my kids to play in the backyard but I do not have the money in one lump sum.

That might be tough depending on the size of your project. If it includes any deck/patio along with planted trees/shrubs, you're looking at a $10K+ project. That's asking a lot for a landscape company to take the risk of financing your backyard. You might be better off approaching your bank for a personal loan to fund this project.

Most of the big nurseries will put together a landscape plan for free that can be implemented in stages, thus not having to lay out all the money at once, but I feel sure that any landscape company will want to be paid for any work they do as soon as the work is completed.

I agree with you. Since you mentioned it: I had Kingstown Landscaping do an estimate which they charged me 50 dollars for and then they said they would draft me a plan for the complete backyard job costing 800 dollars. They are a great company no doubt. I would think the larger more established ones would do it but even they do not. I get 10 lawn treatments from them per year and I pay the bill after every treatment. To be fair I understand a company would like to be paid once the service is rendered but I am hoping there would be an option other wise. If they want to do a credit check on me that's fine as my FICO score is over 770.

My boyfriends Mom is an awesome landscaper. She works for Craven's Nursery in Falls Church, and does landscaping projects on the side. I'm sure you could work a payment plan out with her. Send me a (direct message) if you would like her contact information.
