Landscaping refers to the modification of the visible features of an area of land. This could include organic elements such as plants or wildlife, natural topographical elements or abstract elements such as architectural installations or lighting conditions. Before a landscaping project is started, its recommended to consult with a local expert that is experienced with the natural terrain. There are many different factors that need to be taken into consideration prior to excavation, including terrain, topography, soil quality, prevailing winds, depth of the frost line, native plants and animals. Depending on these factors some land may not be suited for excessive landscaping modifications. Consult with your local landscape architect prior to starting any major landscaping work.

Landscape architects provide the design blueprints which include the site analysis, site inventory, land planning, design layout of organic materials, site grading, storm water management and construction specification that adheres to local building codes. Once a landscape architect has defined the design a landscape contractor is hired to modify the land to match the architects design plan. Landscape contractors are experienced professionals who use various tools and machinery to construct and maintain garden architecture. Throughout the USA landscape contracting is a licensed profession with varying requirements including a combination of education, work experienced and/or an apprenticeship program.

Landscape contractors require durable containers to transport heavy loads of organic debris, dirt, fine aggregate and large rock materials. Contractor Duty Roll Off Containers are a popular choice due to their durability and versatility. Contractor duty roll offs are well suited to haul materials of all sizes and shapes, from trees to boulders and everything in between. Contractors also like these containers because they can haul their compact excavation equipment or other industrial landscape machinery inside the container. This additional feature makes it very convenient to transport machinery from job site to job site.
