Spring has arrived, and summer is just around the corner. Picking a landscaping company that is not only affordable, but gives you a chance to have your dream yard doesn’t have to be difficult. Here are six things you should consider when deciding on a reputable landscaping company.
A great landscaping company will have insurance and be open to presenting you with evidence of that when asked. Insurance is essential for a landscaping company - if they do permanent damage to your lawn or one of their employees get hurt on your property, insurance will come in handy. You can be liable for any injuries that occur on your property - insurance will also protect you from any issues that might arise from that.
Does the landscaping company have a history? If so, you should be able to find honest reviews about the company and gather some background information. Companies with a long history should have some examples of previous work that they’ve done. A new landscaping company can still be a great choice - it might just be a little harder to do some additional digging.
Ask about what guarantees the landscaping company offers. Typically, landscaping companies will guarantee their work for a period of time after completion. A guarantee time can vary from a few months to even a few years! If a landscaping company doesn’t offer a guarantee, you might need to do some digging to determine why.
Landscaping companies should have a few references that they can provide upon request. They should also be able to provide some testimonials or additional customer feedback. If a company doesn’t have any references, testimonials, or customer feedback that could be a red flag. The more positive feedback a company has - the better!
Having a complete and thorough knowledge of landscaping is of course important as well. It might seem like common sense that a landscaping would have the expertise needed, but you are placing your home’s value in someone else’s hands so you can never be too careful. Make sure the company you are considering has knowledgeable experts on staff. Landscaping can be complicated, you should feel confident that you are leaving your lawn to the experts.
When speaking with a landscaping company, it’s important to know what your goals are - what do you want for your lawn? It will be hard to get accurate quotes, and an accurate feel for what their customer service will be like if you don’t provide them with an accurate representation for scope of work. It’s also important that after you tell a landscaping company what your goals are that they can provide you a timeline. No one wants a half finished landscaping project!
