Yardzen Pro Requirements
We partner only with the best, most responsive, and diligent contractors for our clients’ projects
You can trust that our Pro Network contractors will complete your Yardzen project and do it well. Our team has carefully vetted members who demonstrate consistency across every landscaping project.
Our Pro Network is a Yardzen team working towards a common goal: building the yard of your dreams. Clear and prompt communication is essential to keep projects on time, budgets in order, and to quickly remedy any hiccups.
Having a friendly personality is not a “nice to have”, but a Yardzen requirement. Creating a friendly worksite improves project communication, collaboration, and overall project morale.
Our Pro Network contractors have undergone a vigorous vetting process and have demonstrated a long-standing, stellar reputation for providing clear project scope, itemized material lists, milestone updates, and more.
Before we match your project with a contractor, we’re working behind the scenes to identify the best Pro contractor in our network that fits your yard’s unique characteristics and Yardzen design. Our local hand-picked contractor will have the right skills to get the job done.
What clients who built with a Yardzen Pro are saying
After you receive your final design (a.k.a Revised Conceptual Design) you’ll have an opportunity to express interest in being introduced to a landscape contractor in the Yardzen Pro Network to install your design. We’ll match you with the Pro we deem the best fit for your project.
At the outset of the design process we’ll ask you for your all-in budget for your project. Your designer will create your design with that number in mind. However, it’s important to keep in mind that there are always variables—the finish materials and plant sizes you ultimately choose, for example—that can bring down cost or drive it up.
Your relationship with the Pro you hire will be direct, so we cannot guarantee their pricing. We seek to find Pros who offer fair market costs to add to the Pro Network across the entire spectrum of work, from mid-range to high-end.
Contractors in the Yardzen Pro Network are partners, not employees of Yardzen.
Yes, however we recommend you have a minimum of $15,000 to allocate to the first phase of your installation. We always recommend starting with a comprehensive design for the full scope of your landscaping project, but it’s no problem to install the design in phases.
Our goal is to help you get your Yardzen design installed. While we consider multiple Pros for each job, we ultimately select one contractor in our network who we believe is the right match for you.
Every project is unique, and many factors feed into the matching timeline, including the complexity of your project, the number of in-network Pros near you and seasonal availability. We begin the process of matching as soon as your project is complete and you signal that you’re interested in being matched.
In partnership with our Pros, we do our very best to get Yardzen projects prioritized. Here, as with Pro Matching timeline, there are many factors that can impact this date range. The most impactful is seasonality, or what time of year you’re beginning work and how scheduled the Pro is. This is why we encourage clients to begin their design far in advance of when they want the work done.
With Yardzen, you own your design and you are welcome to work with a contractor of your choosing.
Yes. If your project requires permitting we’ll aim to match you with a Pro who will be able to assist with securing the necessary permits or guiding you through the process.
