  • Interest and keenness:
    Right from the word, ‘Go,’ the landscaper should show a high level of interest and be keen to work for you, but that does not mean pestering and pursuing to get the project. Prompt return calls and emails mark interest.

  • Attention to minute details:
    Every detail is to be considered and mentioned while giving the quote to give you a better idea of what to expect and how to deal with any unexpected expenses.
  • Reputation:
    This is the key factor to look for and some research about previous works and testimonials is a must.

Choosing the Right Company

This is very important as only best landscapers will be able to deliver exactly what you want. The right way to go about it is to watch the gardens in your neighborhood and beyond and if you find anything attracting go ahead and ask for names and recommendations. Even your friends, co-workers and family can prove to be a good source.

You can also compile a list of names you find in local newspapers, telephone directories, garden centers as well as local nurseries. Lastly, you can take help of the internet.

With the list in hand, it is time to start the interviewing session. You should not rush into this aspect and give ample time interview and compare at least three to four such names before making the final decision.

During the interview, exchange ideas about proper landscaping according to your space and requirement. After this, it is time to chalk out a formal plan for landscaping.

Make sure that you present the same plan to each of these landscapers so that you have the same parameters for making the right comparison.

Get an estimate from each, know how the project will be done, how long it will take and whether there will be any sub-contractors and who will bear their expenses and responsibility.

Questions to Ask

Ask relevant questions about insurance and license, years in business, about the staff, plans and designs, and about the installation process as well. Also, ask the landscapers about any ongoing maintenance like spraying and weeding and make sure whether or not these jobs will be specified in the job contract. Lastly, get everything in writing along with the price, guarantee for workmanship and materials.
