Let The Buyer Beware
Most licensed contractors are competent, honest, hardworking and financially responsible. However, home improvement is a top source of consumer complaints nationwide. Most of the problems CSLB sees could be prevented if homeowners knew their home improvement rights and took responsibility for their project. A responsible and informed consumer can work more effectively with reputable contractors, and can avoid being victimized by unscrupulous or unlicensed operators.
The "buyer beware" principle can help prevent frustration and disappointment when preparing to make a major decision. By carefully considering what you want done to your property, what it will realistically take to do the job, and taking the time to research and check the license of the professional you hire to do the job, you may avoid many of the headaches often associated with remodeling.
Almost everyone knows someone who has a nightmare story to tell about their remodeling job: the length of time it took; the inconvenience of the noise, dust, and absence of such essentials as plumbing, electricity, heat, and air conditioning; lack of privacy during the job; or the cost overruns associated with homeowners who had to live through what they described as "the trauma" of even the smallest remodeling job.
Protect yourself--and your pocketbook--by doing your home improvement homework and planning responsibly for your project.
Check the Contractor's License
Is the contractor properly licensed? In California, anyone who contracts to perform work that is valued at $500 or more for materials and labor must hold a current, valid license from the Contractors State License Board in the specialty for which he or she is contracting.
Unlicensed contractors pose a risk to your financial security because they expose you to significant financial harm in the event of injury or property damage. Few unlicensed contractors have bonding or workers' compensation insurance.
If you contract with someone who does not have a license, the Contractors Board may not be able to assist you with a resolution to a complaint, and a remedy against an unlicensed contractor may be available only in civil court. This is one more good reason to work only with licensed contractors! Another consideration is that unlicensed contractors may not have the expertise and qualifications to do the job right the first time. You could end up having to hire a licensed, reputable contractor to correct the work-and paying for the job twice.

What’s the difference between hardscapes and softscapes?
A softscape is all the natural, organic materials used to create a landscape. Grass, plants, flowers, and trees are all parts of softscaping.
Hardscapes, on the other hand, are the built environmental features. These include structures made of concrete, wood, or other construction materials. Walkways, patios, and driveways are some of the most common hardscaped elements.
How do I care for freshly installed sod?
Fresh sod needs ample watering to establish strong roots. For the first two weeks, water your lawn four to six times a day for about five minutes. The soil underneath should never be soggy, so adjust accordingly. You should also stay off the sod.
After two weeks, you should mow the lawn for the first time. By then, the sod will have developed sufficient roots to need less watering and maintenance.
How does aeration improve my lawn’s health?
Aeration gives your lawn room to grow and space to breathe—literally. It reduces soil compaction, creating small pockets within the soil so that oxygen can flow to the roots of the grass. In the process, it increases nutrient uptake, allowing your lawn to grow stronger, lusher, and more resilient.
My lawn is thatched and patchy. Can you improve its appearance?
Thatch—the layer of organic matter that accumulates on a lawn—can cause root problems and patchiness if left untreated. For such issues, the best approach is a systematic one. At Quality Landscape And Maintenance LLC, we start by aerating the lawn to increase oxygen and nutrition intake. From there, we use a range of strategies to thicken the lawn, including re-seeding, dethatching, and adding topsoil.
