Tips When Hiring a Landscape Professional.

Below are 6 tips for hiring a landscape designer, architect, or contractor.

Are they licensed and insured? When hiring a landscape contractor it is important to ask if they are licensed, bonded, and completely insured. If your landscape installation requires heavy machinery your hired professionals must carry adequate bonds and insurance. This way, you can rest easy knowing that if any issue may occur, both you and the professionals you hire can be solved quickly.

How long have they been in business? A good sign of a trustworthy and knowledgeable landscape company can be determined by how long they have been in the industry. Having experience in the industry goes hand in hand with adroitness and effectiveness. Meaning the homeowner can feel comfortable with the skills of the professionals hired to complete the job from beginning to end with ease. When hiring a landscape company with local experience will be beneficial when you begin to submit forms to the city and board. 

Do they show their recent projects? When it comes to hiring a landscape professional it's important to look at their most recent work just like any artist you hire. It also becomes a great way to narrow down your landscape contractors if you are torn between a few. Looking through these possible professional projects will give you an idea of their work quality and ability.

What reviews do they have? When looking at potential landscapers it is a great idea to look internally into the company. Don't just look at the testimonials on the company's website, but find reviews via third parties such as Google. 

Do they offer warranties? It is important to ask the landscape professionals you hire if they offer any kind of warranty regarding the installation and finished landscape project. Companies that offer warranties are usually a good indicator of quality work and they often want to ensure the job is done right the first time.

Can you trust them? The most important part when picking what landscape contractor you want to work with is going to be determined whether or not you can trust them to bring your vision to reality. A homeowner typically wants to hire a professional who will take the time to listen and understand all your wants and desires.
