We've moved into a house where the trees and shrubs in the front of the house were just thrown in and left. House is about 5 years old. They are blocking light, ugly and damp. So I need someone who can pull them out and put something easy to maintain but will allow light to come in. Also need a few mini palms doing at the back of the house. I really can't afford tens of thousands of dollars like some of the big firms are asking! I'd even source trees myself on behalf of a landscaper to get them at a good price.
Can anyone suggest someone good, reliable, who knows what will work and what won't and will not break the bank?
So far, I've been ripped off by general contractors and do NOT want it to happen again so really want to go with someone's recommendation.

Sounds like your really working to fix the place up.

I am going to check out adding some landscaping too. You might search out a thread here that talked about buying palm trees on line. If you order them, I'm sure you can find someone to plant them for you, if they are too much to handle. They have all types and sizes. I am not sure what the planting season is for them here though. I still have to check that out further.

The UF Cooperative Extension (Manatee and/or Sarasota) will provide direction/referencing. They can also help with industry organizations for referencing state/county certified professionals listed for your area.

Once a landscape professional is found, trust in his/her judgement and/or suggestions will allow the process go smoothly and efficiently. Many things will dictate what you can and cannot have, as to the microclimate that you property provides. When a plan is drawn and agreed upon, go with it and don't try to make changes midstream. Changes lead to more $$!!

A few suggestions to offer to provide information on the make-up of your particuliar property to start and can be done by the homeowner, relatively cheap; soil test ( kits provided by the Coop. Ext.), the water source (well, municipal, reclaimed, lake, ect.), a copy of the plot survey.
