A well-kept yard can significantly boost your home’s curb appeal. However, extensive yard work can be time-consuming and require the use of proper tools and equipment. When it comes to giving your landscaping a makeover, it always pays to invest in a reputable landscaping contractor.
Here are qualities you should look for when hiring a landscaping company.
You’ll want to hire someone who has the right skills for the job. Choose a company that is founded in formal education, with degrees like landscaping design or horticulture. The certifications, accreditations or memberships of a landscaping company can also determine the quality of their services.
Years of Experience
Nothing expands knowledge and sharpens skills like experience. Check how long your prospective landscaper has been invested and what services they offer. An experienced landscaper can recommend the best solutions for your lawn and what plants work well in your area.
Before hiring a landscaping company, request a copy of their portfolio and read reviews from previous clients or ask for referrals. You’d want proof that your landscaper is as good as they are claiming to be. Their previous work can also give you inspiration for your landscape design.
While some landscapers specialize in design, others only offer build services. Hiring a company that offers both design and build can result in a cohesive landscape. You should also consider the maintenance services that a landscaping company provides.
