5 Tips for Choosing the Right Landscaping Contractor for Your Home




Choosing the right landscaping contractor can be a daunting task. You want to make sure that you’re getting the best value for your money and that the work is done to your satisfaction. Here are five tips to help you choose the right landscaping contractor for your home:

  1. Do Your Homework: Research your local landscaper options and compare them to each other. Be wary of contractors offering incredibly cheap prices, as you typically get what you pay for. Look for companies with experience in a variety of services and who can provide strong references from past clients who had the same needs as you. Be sure to check websites, social media profiles, and review sites like Yelp and Angie’s List.

  2. Know What You Want: Make sure you have a clear picture of what you’re looking for and be sure to convey that image to your potential landscape contractors to see how they react to your requests. Put all your wants and needs on paper. Compare that list to the services offered and experiences of each contractor to ensure they match.

  3. Keep Your Options Open: There are a variety of contractors. They vary based on size, price, service areas, and specialties. Landscape companies can also be referred to as lawn care companies, landscape design firms, and landscaping maintenance firms. Be sure to include all these types of companies within your searches. Regardless of what they call themselves, make sure you only consider skilled professionals. Keep these things in mind when determining if a company is professional:

  • The length of time the company has been in business

  • The contractor’s Better Business Bureau rating

  • Memberships to professional organizations, such as the local Landscape Association

  • Satisfaction guarantees

  • Testimonials from past clients

  • Pictures from past projects

  1. Ask Around: Talk to your friends, family, neighbors, and others in your community. If you come across a negative review, dig deeper and get the details of what caused the bad experience.

  2. Personality Traits: A landscaping contractor can have all the skills in the world, but if they can’t talk with you and understand your needs, you’ll be in for a long and frustrating adventure. Some key personality traits to look for in your potential contractor are:

  • Good communication skills

  • Patience and understanding of your needs

  • Ready and willing to work with you and your ideas
