If you are considering hiring a landscape gardener to create your new garden then there are a number of things to consider before making your investment. This guide offers advice on choosing a good quality landscape gardener that will go the extra mile to help make your new garden the only place you’ll want to be.
Here are four things to ask a garden landscaper when considering their service:
1. What services to do you offer?
Some landscape gardeners cover a variety of services including turf laying, fencing, decking, patio laying and planting. Others however only specialize in one area. If you are looking for an all-round garden landscaper then you must quiz your prospective provider as to what they can actually do – properly and professionally.
2. Can I see and check testimonials from past customers?
If you have not been recommended to this garden landscaper by someone you know has been satisfied with their service, then ask them for testimonials that you can verify. There is no substitute for hearing from other satisfied customers that this garden landscaping company can be trusted to do a good job, on time and for a reasonable price.
3. Can I see photographs of previous work?
Ask for photographs or even video coverage of recent garden landscaping jobs so that you can check the quality of the work.
4. Do you provide written, no-obligation quotations?
Make sure the garden landscaper puts their quote in writing on official headed paper showing a postal address and full contact details. Verify these details and look the company up by searching for them on the internet. Listings in directories and a strong presence stand for a lot.
Putting time and effort into choosing the right garden landscaping company – and asking lots of questions – will ensure your garden project runs to schedule, is not overpriced and the resulting garden is something to cherish.
