Choosing the Right Landscape Contractor

Choosing the right contractor

Choosing the right landscape contractor will help you get the best value for your investment. Not all contractors are the same. You can avoid frustration by investigating a contractor ahead of time. A good contractor should not only be easy to communicate and do business with, but should provide insight into the project and be capable of providing design services.

Make sure you have a detailed idea of what you are looking for so that you can be sure your needs are met. Don't base your decision on the cost alone. Consider workmanship, salesmanship and reputation before making your decision.


Here are several things to look for in a landscape contractor:

Available references

Good reputation

Reliable and capable of handling your project

Qualified and sufficiently trained staff with relevant certifications and licenses

Portfolio

Professional memberships that demonstrate a commitment to development and excellence among staff

Licensed, bonded (when necessary), carries workers' compensation and general liability insurance

Promotes safety

Well-maintained equipment that is capable of handling the job

Professional staff

A company that returns your calls in a timely manner

Provides a detailed written quote with costs for services so that you are certain the contractor understands your needs before the work begins
