Hiring a Landscaper? 4 Questions You Must Ask to Find the Best One

Category: Features

Having a beautiful lawn you can go to whenever you want to relax makes coming home every day even more exciting. Unfortunately, many people do not have the time or experience to design and maintain a lush garden. But this does not mean you cannot have the landscape of your dreams. Hiring an experienced landscaper will help you achieve this. Here are some of the questions you should ask before engaging one:

What is your level of experience?

Does he have the required skills and if so, what is the proof? How long has he been in the industry? What has he achieved so far? Can he provide photos or videos of successful landscape designs he has completed?  Does he have experience dealing with different plants, designing swimming pools and other accessories? Other than the design and installation, will he maintain the landscape?

Which process will you use?

It is crucial you get a breakdown of how things will run. For instance, know how your Kent-based contractor designs driveways and if there are any local authority approvals you need for the process.

How long will it take?

You should have a clear view of how long the project will take. What will the landscaper do to ensure that it runs on schedule? What measures should you take if he takes longer than expected or does not follow the agreed terms?

How much will it cost?

Agreeing on the cost of the whole project will ensure you know what is expected of you all throughout the process. Will the price be a lump sum or will you pay for the design and installation then regular maintenance fees?

Getting a qualified landscaper will ensure you get your dream landscape installed and maintained. The beauty and satisfaction will put a smile on your face every time you come back home.
