Choosing a landscape partner will influence the look and feel of your outdoor spaces for the short and long term because that they do today will influence your lawn, plants, shrubs, and trees for the rest of their lives. The following are some of the things to look out for when deciding which lawncare and landscaping service to use.
Communicate Your Long Term Vision
Know your budget. Address financial constraints by a phased approach to your longer-term objectives. The best results can result from thinking big. Example: If you are installing a patio and have a long term plan for an outdoor kitchen then go ahead and have the gas lines installed now while the area is under construction. Your landscape professional can help create a master plan to allow you to create your ultimate outdoor setting, implemented in phases as your resources allow.
Use Native Flowers, Shrubs and Trees
Understand the importance of working with native flowers, shrubs and trees. Plants that are native to your specific area will thrive in your garden, while exotic imports will require extraordinary efforts to keep them alive and growing, and might still struggle. Temperatures, soil conditions and water resources must all be considered when selecting plants for your landscape.
How Much Time Do You Want To Spend In Your Garden?
That question will help you decide the types of plants you want to plant. Do you want low maintenance plants and shrubs? Or are you someone who loves to work in the garden and outside. This should all be in your plan.
Allow Enough Time for the Completion of Your Project
If a new landscaping project is for a specific upcoming event, please communicate this with your landscape professional. You must consider city permits, crews schedules, and the weather among other things when setting a realistic completion date.
Be Sure All Community Rules are Followed
Your landscape professional will usually understand state laws and city ordinance but may not be familiar with neighborhood rules such as those mandated by homeowners associations. Make sure to communicate these specific rules with them before they start work.
Questions to Ask Landscape Professionals
- Do you have adequate insurance? Can I see proof?
- Will you be subcontracting any of the work?
- Do you have the proper permits and licenses for work in this community and State?
- What are you guarantees?
- Do I have to sign a contract? If so, can I see it?
