Your home is your sanctuary, and it is only natural for you to be skeptical when hiring a new landscaper to work on your beloved garden. It is essential to find an experienced landscaper who takes pride in their work. To help you find the right landscaper for your needs, there are some essential things that you should ask them before hiring. What are these questions? Let’s explore together in this post:
Q: What is their qualification, and do they have any certificates?
A good landscaper will be certified by a respected organization that showcases their expertise and quality of work. When interviewing a landscaper, ask them about their qualifications and if they carry any certifications. If they provide you with any certificate that you don’t recognize, be sure to vet the institute to get an idea about the quality of the work that the landscaper can provide.
Q: Do they have any links to any professional landscaping organization?
Belonging to any professional landscaping organization speaks volumes of the quality of the landscaper’s work. This will allow you to gauge the results that the landscaper will be able to provide you. Be sure to thoroughly vet the organization that the landscaper mentions.
Q: How long have they been working in this field?
Though there is nothing wrong with hiring a new landscaping company, working with a company that has more vast experience helps you assess the quality of work they can provide. If they are experienced in the field, be sure to ask them for references so you can get to know the quality of their work firsthand.
Q: What is their warranty?
Most of the landscaping companies in the business offer a 1-year warranty, but a good landscaping job should last much longer than that. Most of the problems with a landscaping project rear their head in the first few years. If your landscaping hasn’t moved in at least 3 years, you can be sure that it will not have any significant problems for many years to come. It is always better to ask the company if they can extend their warranty to up to 3 years.
Q: When can they start the project, i-e, what is their lead time?
It is important to know how quickly you can expect your project to be completed. Don’t hire a company that has a very tight schedule and is overbooked for weeks or months. An excellent-sized company would have enough manpower to take on new clients and deliver their projects in a timely manner. Don’t forget to ask about their lead time so you can get your project completed on time.
