10 TIPS FOR HIRING A LANDSCAPE PROFESSIONAL



Hiring a landscaper is not an easy task. There are many things to consider before you make your decision. The following tips can help ensure that you pick the best professional for the job. 1. Consider your budget and the size of your landscape before you start looking. You should ensure the company is the right fit for your budget and frequently works on jobs similar in size. Ask what the project minimums are and ensure that all costs will be broken down. 2. Ask for recommendations from friends, family members, or neighbors in a similar situation. If there are projects the company has worked on you can see in person - that's even better! Nextdoor is one way to check reviews from neighbors. 3. Check online reviews to see what others have said about their experience with the company. Look closely at the reviews, some companies encourage friends, family, and employees to write reviews for them 4. Make sure that the landscaper can provide references from other clients who are happy with their work. 5. This one is straightforward, but be sure your landscaper is licensed, insured, and will carry worker's compensation insurance. 6. Be wary of landscaping companies that do not provide landscape designs or provides them for free. Buying a design ahead of time ensures someone sat down and put thought into what they are installing for you. You should know what the eventual sizes of plants are so you can make an informed decision on whether or not they are right for you. You'll want to do your own research if this information is not provided to you.

7. Only move forward with work that has clear parameters and materials listed in writing with pricing breakdowns. Both parties need to be clear on expectations. There should be a contract involved. Check on whether or not there is a warranty on plants being installed. 8. Cheapest doesn't always mean best. Although everyone likes a deal, you must be wary of seemingly great deals when pricing out your projects. Lower prices can mean a downgrade in materials, permanency, or quality of work. 9. Look into the treatment of employees at a company. Happy employees will typically do better work. A company that engages and trains their employees is ideal. There are a lot of untrained individuals working in the landscaping industry. 10. Go with your gut! If you get a bad feeling about an individual you could very well be right. Be sure you feel good about the relationship and possibility of working closely with landscapers you hire.
