Tips for choosing the best landscaper or gardener
Know the goals of your project ahead of time: There are many reasons why people hire a landscaper – to make a good impression, to create outdoor recreation areas like swimming pools, fountains and gazebos, to attract birds, to attract customers or tenants or simply to create a place to relax after a stressful day. First, choose your goals and then set up a few appointments with local professionals.
Choose an experienced and professional landscaper: There are different types of contractors depending on your needs: Small and independent contractors and large design/build firms offering comprehensive landscaping design services. There are lawn care companies that provide affordable weekly lawn care, landscaping design firms and landscaping maintenance firms. Here are a few things you can do to check their experience:
- Check the company’s reviews on Google, Yelp and the Better Business Bureau
- Check the company’s professional associations like the Chamber of Commerce, American Society of Landscape Architects or the American Nursery and Landscape Association.
- Ask how long they have been in the landscaping business and if they have the licensing and certification.
- Ask for a portfolio of past projects.
- Ask if they offer guarantees on their work and products.
- Ask around. Talk to your friends and family or visit a nursery and get referrals. A great reputation is one sure measure of a landscaper’s skills and abilities.
Choose a landscaper or gardener you like: Are you comfortable talking to him? Can you easily communicate your ideas, goals, priorities, needs and budget? Is he courteous and prompt with replies? When hiring a landscaping company, you may not deal with just one person but a crew of workmen. These people will be spending a significant amount of time around your house, yourself and members of your family.
