By doing your research, you should be able to narrow down your search to 2 or 3 qualified contractors. Each of the contractors, or their representatives, should do the following things:



* Come to your home and accurately measure your yard. If a contractor is unwilling to do this, or if he asks you to pay for this basic service, you should move on… Continue
