References – Check for company references. A legitimate landscaping company can offer you a list of references as well as customer reviews for their work and price. Checking for their references will allow you to compare for their previous year’s job performance that are of equal or greater dollar value than your current project.
Avoid Choosing By Price – Choosing for a company that offers the lowest bid may not always be a good idea. As we all know, if it’s too good to be true, it probably is. These companies may provide you the lowest price for their services but it does not assure you of the quality of their work. Having bid lower, they have the tendency to use cheaper materials as well as unsafe equipment and poor workmanship.
Research – Research your local landscaping company and compare them to each other. Choose the ones that have variety of services and experience as well as those who can provide you with strong references from their past clients – especially clients that has the same needs as you.
Personality – One of the things you need to consider is the company’s and staff’s personality. You will be working with the company for days as well as in the future for maintenance works, so it is important to choose ones that you are comfortable with. Working with a company that is easy to approach and contact, has good communication skills, and has the patience and understanding of your needs, as well as the creativity to bring your ideas to reality is important.
