Things to Check before Picking Landscaping Company

When you want to have a great design for your front and back yard. How do you choose the right company to use for the look and appeal you want on a budget?


In this day and age with so many companies to choose from it’s no longer as simple as looking into the phone book and finding a shortlist of companies to pick from. Now with the internet, you can go online and quickly search for landscaping with a larger database, but you are still stuck with that question of which company do you choose that will not only provide with the service you need and the quality but also fit for your budget?


A great company will be with you every step of the way, one important factor is to be able to communicate with the designer and the project coordinator. They are the first step in creating a design that suits your personality. A design done professionally means that the scoop of work needed will be completed professionally as well.


So who do you pick if the companies you requested a quotation from are within your budget scoop and the designs are professionally done?


You pick the one that has the reputation to back up the work they do. Your design for your home is a reflection of your comfort, so your outside space should be one that is comfortable for you and you can enjoy your space with ease. Low maintenance back yard allows more time to enjoy your free time. Keep in mind changes during the project can sometimes lead to complications and longer completion times. Changes should be addressed before the project begins.

Questions to Ask

The work you have done to your front and back yard will add value to your home and give you some outdoor time and a space you feel at home in. The best way to help you choose the company is by staying involved with the procedure and keeping open communication. Many times companies have been hired and failed to produce the results the client wants. So the questions you should ask:


  1. How long has the company been in business?
  2. Have they done large scale projects?
  3. Is their website up to date and easy to navigate?
  4. Does the website provide a picture of previous projects?
  5. Do they work in your community?
  6. Do they follow the bylaw rules of the city?
  7. Do they do the utility one call?
  8. What kind of equipment do they use on your property?
  9. Will they take responsibility if they cause damage to your neighbour’s yard?
  10. Do they provide a warranty on the service for plants, trees and paving stones?
  11. Do they have liability coverage?
  12. Do they know about the products they are using?
  13. Do they provide you with a care package for your plants?

These questions will help you filter through the companies and helping choose the right fit for your needs.
