There are simple landscaping jobs that homeowners can tackle such as painting, clearing yard waste and planting in your planters. But if your landscaping plans go beyond that, I would recommend bringing in a professional. For example, incorrectly laying down interlocking can create major issues.
Without properly compacting the soil and gravel underneath the stone, that soil could sink, allowing water to pool – or worse, flow right toward your foundation. A job done poorly on the outside of your home can actually cause big problems inside.

Remember having a detailed contract (even just an itemized bill for smaller jobs) with a payment schedule that reflects milestones (work actually completed), doing a background check, and checking references can help protect you during a renovation but what if you do everything right and still get left high and dry by your contractor with an incomplete or unsatisfactory job?
If the job is incomplete and a solution cannot be found, you could stop paying the contractor, fire your contractor and/or hire another contractor to complete the job (remember to keep a paper trail of work completed and costs).
This info is specific to Ontario, but a good read for all.

Not all asphalt shingles are created equally. Make sure to choose a shingle that has at least a 25-year warranty. Work with your roofing contractor to understand what the warranty will cover and any proration periods included. #RoofItRight https://t.co/cY7qUkpISl

With YouTube videos and other online tutorials, DIY projects are more accessible than ever. And look, the idea that you can save a few bucks doing your own work is an appealing one, but there are limits to everyone’s skills when it comes to DIY. https://t.co/PA1ffofwbK

The furnace (or utility) room is my favourite room in the house. It is the lifeline to your home and it often gets no attention.
