» Posted by on Jul 30, 2019 in Landscaping | 0 comments

If you want to hire a landscaper to improve your outdoors, then you have to hire experts not just in landscaping but also in irrigation, trees, hardscapes, and patios. By dealing with a company that has experts in different fields the execution of your ideas is going to be so much faster. 

It is also highly advised that you seek the help of family and friends when it comes to finding which company to hire. Their suggestions are going to be helpful, especially if they have been in your shoes before. Look for experts who can help you with landscaping. Here are some questions you can ask possible service providers: 

1. How long will the project take? 

Not all landscapers work as fast as the others and some may not even stay to see the last of the project after they have passed it over to another professional, like an irrigation expert for example. So, a good question to as is if they will remain with your project until it is finished. It’s true that you’re not the only client of the landscaping company. But then again, you deserve to have a clear timetable so you can monitor the completion of the project. That way, you don’t have to wait around with your front yard half-finished front yard just because they have started working in somebody else’s house.  

2. Can they provide you with a well-drawn plan? 

Preparing a drawing or a sketch of your new landscape is one of the best ways to ensure that you can see what the landscaper has to offer. Ask each company to give you a sketch of the design. Some companies will charge you for this but only if they give you a good copy and not just a sketch. Also, ask for pictures of their other projects that are similar to what you desire. 

3Are they providing guarantees?   

Reputable landscapers can give up to five years guarantee on their work. Others may insure it for lower, like two years. Even so, you have to know what the service provider can offer. The guarantee serves as your safety net as you won’t have to pay for major repairs for that length of time. You just have to make sure that the company is still around to make good on their offered guarantee.  

4How will the landscape be installed? 

You have to know exactly how the landscapers will work. In their written estimate and contract, they should specify how they will construct the project and what materials they will use to build it. It should also state there the type of machinery that they are going to use. 

Landscaping firms should have some regular construction methods and procedures to follow. They should be able to provide information on how to they will go about each project type. This is one way of making sure that you are getting the best service for the price that you’re going to pay. Always stick with the service providers who are reputable so you’ll get the results that you expected.
