Questions to Ask Before Hiring a Landscaping Service

Questions to Ask Before Hiring a Landscaping Service

If you're searching for a professional landscaping service at the moment, it shouldn't be too difficult to find one. There are more than 20,000 landscaping services in Canada today.

You shouldn't trust just any landscaping company to provide you with services, though. You need someone you can trust by your side to maintain your lawn for an affordable price.

Before you hire a professional landscaping service, make sure you ask them a series of questions. Their answers to those questions should help you determine if they're the right company for you.

Check out four important questions below.

Are You Licensed and Insured?

This is the very first question you should ask any professional landscaping service. And you should not work with a service if they don't answer you with a resounding "yes!"

Any landscaping service that sets foot on your property needs to be licensed in your city or town. This will show you that they have a legitimate business that stands behind their work.

They also need to have insurance just in case something goes wrong when they're performing landscaping services. There are all kinds of accidents that can take place when a company is working on your lawn, and you need to know that they have insurance to protect them.

How Much Experience Do You Have?

Always ask about the experience that a professional landscaping service has for two reasons:

  1. It'll show you that a landscaping service knows what they're talking about and knows how to provide you with landscaping services
  2. It'll prove that other people have come to a landscaping service enough in the past to keep them in business

A landscaping service doesn't need to have 40 years of experience to work on your landscape design. But they should have at least a few years under their belt.

What Services Do You Offer?

Whenever possible, you should work with a full-service professional landscaping company. These companies provide a slew of services that'll come in handy when you want work done on your landscaping.

Some of the services a company should offer include:

  • Landscape design
  • Landscape construction
  • Grounds maintenance

Some landscaping services will even do snow removal for you if you need it. Make sure a company has plenty of services to offer.

How Much Do Your Services Cost?

At the end of the day, you shouldn't select a landscaping service based on price alone. If you choose a service simply because they're cheap, you're asking for trouble.

You should, however, consider the cost of working with different services in your area. You want a company that will provide you with fair prices for the services you need.

Your best bet is to obtain quotes from a few companies in your city or town before hiring one to work with you. This will ensure you get the best possible price on landscaping services.
