What is a landscaper?


Landscaping refers to any activity that changes the visible features of an area of land. When most people think of landscapers, they think of someone who tends to flowers and cuts grass. This article is about landscapers who work on larger scale projects such as retaining walls, and patios. (Some of these companies still do day to day maintenance).
