In this article, we are going to tell you how to prepare for an upcoming landscape installation project in your yard. Keep reading to learn more!
Work Site Access
Your contractor likely discussed work site access early on in the project planning process. If they haven't you should be sure they are aware of any special access requirements or restrictions as soon as possible before the crew arrives to start work! When the time comes to start your project, be sure that you do anything that needs to be done to make the job site accessible such as unlocking gates, moving vehicles, providing gate codes, etc.
If you live in a gated community, you should notify the guard at the front gate that you have a contractor coming to do work so that the crew will be allowed entry. If you live in a gated community with a front gate that requires an access code, your HOA may have specific codes for contractors to use to access the area. Check with you HOA if you are unsure about any access requirements.
You should also specify where the crew can drive and/or park on your property. If you have a separate driveway on your property for construction and landscaping crews to use, be sure to point this out when meeting with the contractor at your property.
Clear the Work Area
Before the landscape installation crew arrives, you should move any objects out of the work area. This includes lawn furniture, toys, decorations, garden tools, and other items. If you are unable to clear the work area yourself and need the crew to do so for you, this should be discussed with your contractor before your project starts. The crew doesn't want to handle your things unless specifically given permission to do so.
Keep in mind that having the crew clear the work area for you will also lead to increased labor time for the job.

It made sense when you mentioned that the guard must be notified if you live in a gated community. My friend wants to improve their lawn. I should advise her to hire an expert in landscape installation to ensure quality work.
