What to Ask a Landscaping Company Prior to Hire

Here are some questions that will make it easier to decide on a landscaping company.

Having a landscaping project in mind is an exciting thought. It can be a lot of fun mapping out your project and envisioning how it will look in the end. One of the less fun aspects of a project is deciding on a landscaping company to carry out the job for you. Whether you have done plenty of landscaping projects in the past or this is your first one, it’s a massive undertaking, and you will always want the right people helping you out. Here are some questions that will make it easier to decide on a landscaping company.

Do You Have a License?

In the state of Maryland, a landscaping company that improves residential properties is required to possess a Maryland Home Improvement License. This license can only be obtained by demonstrating competency in the landscaping field, including the successful completion of a test and the ability to prove they are insured. This is done so that homeowners don’t end up hiring landscaping companies that don’t have the necessary credentials. Therefore, you’ll want to ask a company ahead of time if they have the proper licensing. If they can’t show it to you, it’s probably best for you to look elsewhere.

Who Works For Your Company?

Any landscaping company you consider will have a group of workers that visits your house. You should know how well these workers are screened and if your landscape contractor knows them well. Do the workers who come to your property have a long-lasting relationship with your contractor, or do they hardly know the contractor at all? You should stick to a landscaping company that has the same dependable staff members coming to your property with every visit. These staff members should also have a well-established relationship with your landscape contractor.

How Long Have You Been Providing Services?

When picking out a landscaping company, it’s important that the company you choose has enough experience for the job. Less experienced companies may not know how to handle problems should they arise. Companies with much more experience will know how to improvise and come up with backup plans to help realize your goals. This is why you should ask a landscaping company how much experience they have. The more experience a company has, the better. If the company has a website, it can be helpful to give that website a view so you can see what work they have done for clients in the past.
