When it comes to investing in your outdoor living space, you want to trust the company you hire to work on your property. And to find that right fit, you need to spend some time researching landscape companies.
Here are some ideas to keep in mind as you look and interview various companies:

  1. What type of lawn care and landscape services do you need?

Landscape companies come in all shapes and sizes. Some businesses focus on the maintenance aspect and others will only design and build outdoor structures. Some will do both. You first need to decide what kind of help you need, what you can afford, and what type of landscape company will work best for you.

  1. Ask around.

When you’re in the market for hiring a landscape pro to work on your property, ask your neighbors, friends, family and co-workers who they use. Ask them why they like their company and what type of work that company does for residential properties.

  1. Check out each landscape company’s online presence—including their portfolio and Facebook

The Internet has changed how we do business. You can now check online, from the company’s own website to independent reviewers to get a feel for a lawn and landscape company. Plus, third party sites allow companies to share their work portfolio.

  1. How long has the company been in business?

Depending on the complexity of your landscape project, you may not want to hire the new kid on the block. See how long a landscape company has been in business and if they design/build projects are similar to what you want.

  1. Narrow your choices down to three and call for estimates.

Just like a job interview, you want to talk to each company before you sign a contract or proposal for services. Before you meet with your three choices, write down questions and concerns you may want to ask them.

  1. Make sure all licenses and insurances are up-to-date.

Again, before you sign a contract or a proposal, make sure you see proof of current insurance certificates, including property and workman’s comp. Better yet, get a copy of current insurance certificates. If your lawn care company is applying any pesticides or herbicides, make sure that their application licenses are current too.

  1. Make sure your chosen landscape company has the right training.

The last thing you want to do is to hire a landscape contractor who only built his mother’s patio. Make sure your chosen landscape company has the right training and certificates in landscape design/build before they start working on your property. You’ll save money in the long run when you don’t need to hire another landscape company to rebuild your slope’s retaining wall that caved in because it didn’t have the right foundation.

  1. Can you communicate with them?

Aside from all of the above advice, this is perhaps one of the most important. You need to feel comfortable with your chosen company. Do they listen to your ideas and dreams? Do they respect your budget? Do they give suggestions but also listen to you? If you can’t communicate with them, there’s a good chance you won’t be happy with their work.
