Whether you need a landscaper for your residence or your commercial property, finding one whose vision of your space aligns with yours and who you find easy to work with is essential. The best way to ensure the landscaper you hire is the best one for your needs is to ask the right questions before you sign a contract. If you’re hiring a landscaper, be sure to ask these questions before signing on the dotted line.
Are you bonded and insured?
Before any landscaper begins work on your property, you should ensure that they are fully bonded and insured. They should meet the state’s requirements at a minimum, so that you won’t be held liable if the landscaping team is injured on your property and so that you won’t have to face out of pocket expenses if your property is damaged during the landscaping process. Anyone who works on your property, including your landscaper, should be bonded and insured.
Do you have any specialists on your team?
Unless you’re hiring a landscaper for basic maintenance only, then it helps to hire a company that has specialist workers on staff. An arborist should be part of your landscaping team since they are so essential to tree health. It can also be helpful to choose a landscaper with team members who are certified in sustainable landscaping or landscaping architecture software.
How long will my job take?
This question is most relevant when you are hiring a landscaper for an installation job rather than maintenance. It is also helpful to ask if the landscaper will stay on your project until completion or will be splitting time with other customers.
