When looking to install a new landscape or spruce up an old one you want to make sure to hire a reputable landscaping company.

This can take many hours of research and many phone calls. There are some very important things you should ask when hiring a landscaping company.

The first question you should ask is if the company is bonded and insured. The company you hire could be using equipment near your home. You want to make sure that if any accidents occur that it’s covered.

Find out how long they have been in business. You want the company you hired to have the experience, the skills, and the resources to complete the job you’re hiring them to do.

Also, ask if they have a specialist on their staff. For example, if they are working on trees, you want to make sure they have an arborist. This ensures that they have someone with the knowledge needed to complete the task. 

Finding out a timeline for the project will be beneficial to you.

This way you can ensure that the company will not be leaving your project half-finished and you know how long the process will take. Some landscaping can be very extensive and take a good bit of time. Make sure to keep track of the progress.

You should ask for a mockup or drawing of what the design is going to look like. This way you and your landscaper are on the same page as to what you are wanting. You can make sure to list things on this such as what plants you’re getting and where you want them to go. Always look at photos of projects the company has completed. Looking at previous jobs will give you insight as to the quality of work they do. 

You will want to ask if there is a guarantee on the work performed. Most landscaping companies will guarantee their work for two years. There may be different time frames for the material such as plants or trees. 

Finally, you will want to find out what the installation process will be like.

The company you hire if reputable and experienced should be able to tell you what their process is from beginning to end.
