Single or multiple vendors for landscaping project?
Hello, we are about to have our front landscaping redone. The project will include a new retaining wall, grading and re-sodding, new trees/plantings, new landscape lighting, and probably revisions to the existing irrigation based on whatever the new design happens to be. Question - Should I be looking for a one-stop-shop, or finding the best vendors for each of the types of services (overall design, masonry, lighting, grading and sodding, and planting). On the one hand, I like the idea of having one throat to choke but, on the other hand, I like the idea of having specialists who might perhaps do better quality than a jack of all trades.
So....one throat to choke, or best of breads? If I hire a single vendor, will that vendor likely subcontract everything out, anyhow? Thoughts? - Thanks.
