The hot, dry desert climate in Tucson along with the prevalence of caliche soil throughout Southern Arizona creates a challenging environment for landscape design. Therefore, it is beneficial to work with a professional landscaper for your landscape installation and maintenance. Before you hire a landscaper in Tucson, make sure you ask the following questions.
Is your company licensed and insured?
There are many providers of landscaping services in Tucson, but not all carry the right licensing and insurance to get your project done safely and efficiently. Ask for proof of worker’s compensation and general liability insurance as well as appropriate licensing for the state of Arizona. Working with a landscape contractor that does not have the right insurance can make you liable for any mistakes or injuries that occur on your property.
Can I see examples of your landscape design work?
Any reputable landscaper should have an extensive portfolio of their landscape design and installation projects. Ask to see examples of the company’s landscape design on properties like yours, so you can properly envision the results you can expect.
Do you use subcontractors?
The use of subcontractors doesn’t have to be a dealbreaker, but your landscape company should be upfront about which aspects of your project will be outsourced. However, it’s even better if your landscaper has a full team of providers on staff who can offer specialized services like native plant selection, tree care, hardscaping, and more.
Do you utilize native plants and low-water designs?
In Tucson, it’s essential to be conscious of the water use your new landscape design will require. Ask your landscaper if they prioritize xeriscaping, native plant selection, and water-efficient landscape designs so that you can minimize your environmental impact without compromising the beauty of your outdoor space.
