Homeowners fall into two or three categories. There are those who don’t care what their lawns look like, as long as they aren’t in any legal obligation to make it better. Then there are those who like to keep it nice, and enjoy spending the time it takes to do so. However, there is the third category, which is growing increasingly large. These homeowners want a great looking lawn, but have neither the time nor the inclination to do it themselves. For these people, hiring a landscaping professional is a necessity. If you find yourself in search of one, here are some tips to help you find the right company.
Services Don’t hire a landscaping professional based on assumptions. You may be surprised to find you’ve hired a company that does not provide all of the services that you require. You need to be clear about what your company offers and, sometimes more importantly, what they don’t. There are plenty of companies and individuals in every community who will give you the basics: mowing, hedge clipping, weedeating, etc. But only a select few may have the skills and desire to offer more than that. Know what you’re getting.
Longevity Every business has to start somewhere, but their first job doesn’t need to be your lawn. Try to look for a landscaping company that has a history, preferably in your community. Longevity not only means increased experience, but it is its own reference in many ways. A company that isn’t satisfying customers and doing quality work isn’t going to stay around for very long. If you find someone who has been able to make a living in the same area for many years, you already know they’re doing something right.
Cost Obviously, anyone but those who have more money than they know what to do with will need to consider cost when hiring someone to do their landscaping. It’s an important consideration, but when comparing quotes, make sure you’re comparing apples to apples. If one company’s $100 special gets you a mowed lawn and little else and another’s gives you complete service, you can see a clear difference. Most discrepancies aren’t going to be that stark, but you always want to make sure you consider everything included in the price before you decide which company to hire. And while price is important, make sure you check references, their experience, and the services they offer before you making any payments.
