Landscape Maintenance

Spring is upon us, and we all must start thinking about landscape maintenance.

If you’re a homeowner who has extra time, the necessary knowledge about maintaining a yard, and the equipment, then you may not need to hire landscape maintenance services.

However, most of us don’t have all those things, and the remaining few of us who manage commercial landscaping will definitely need to hire landscape maintenance professionals.

But not every company is good at every task, so you must first decide what needs to beLandscape Maintenance Project done. Look at your local landscaping companies and see what services they offer. If they don’t offer what you’re looking for, then they may end up hiring sub-contractors, which would result in extra costs for you.

Choosing the Right Landscape Maintenance Company

There are multiple factors that must be taken into consideration before choosing a landscape maintenance service.

1. Make Sure You’re Choosing A Top Landscaping Service

You want to make sure that the company is as good as they seem. Read some online reviews. Ask your neighbors if they’ve used the service or if they can recommend any good landscape maintenance services.

2. Are They State Certified?

Each state has its own laws. You should make sure that the company has been certified by its respective state.

If pesticide needs to be used, then it’s even more important, because use of pesticide requires a license.

3. Discuss Timeframes

You want to have a serious discussion with the company about when they can complete the project. You don’t want the work to overrun and inconvenience your day to day activities.

Think about the big picture. Share your vision of how you want your landscape to look with the company. Do you only need simple landscape maintenance, or do you want something more complex and elaborate?

This is true for every type of business, but even more so for landscaping. A top notch company with high quality customer service is the best option.

6. Insurance and Liability

The final thing to check in your landscape maintenance checklist is the company’s insurance policies and safety rules. If the company is reputable then they should have clearly labeled security guidelines for their workers and contractors. If you don’t know what these rules are then chances are they may try to flaunt the rules.

Even if you’re only hiring one or two people who you like and/or trust to do landscape maintenance for you, you should still be clear about how they will be insured in case something goes wrong. With power tools anything can go wrong. Who will be held responsible if someone gets hurt on the job?

    Discussing your goals to ensure you and your landscaper are on the same page is extremely important. not every landscaper may specialize in the look you are going for if it needs hardscaping or special treatments. Some landscapers like to stay basic with just basic lawn care.
