(head office: Saitama Prefecture), which specializes in exterior construction, conducted a questionnaire survey targeting people living in single-family homes. This time, the report focuses only on “people who have planted garden trees.”

People who choose to plant their own plants probably want to deepen their connection with nature and feel the joy of growing something with their own hands. This work can also be an opportunity to strengthen bonds with family and friends.

On the other hand, people who choose to hire a contractor may be looking for specialized knowledge and skills. Selection, planting, and maintenance of garden trees often require specific skills and experience, and it is natural to seek such expertise from a
contractor. Also, the idea of ​​saving time and effort may be behind the choice of a contractor.

People who choose to involve both themselves and a contractor may want to share their ideas and aspirations with experts and have them put into practice in order to realize the garden of their dreams.
