It is important for any homeowner to maintain their yard, sometimes though they just do not have enough time to do it themselves. This is why many people opt to hire a landscaper to help them take care of and maintain their yard, or take care of various one-time jobs, like cutting down a tree. By allowing a landscaper onto your property though, you are placing a lot of trust into them to get the job they were hired to do done, and not make any mistakes that may ruin your yard. You deserve to fully understand what they are doing, and you can do so by asking them questions and having them answered. If you are unsure of what to ask though, here are some good questions to get you started.
Are you insured?
Asking about insurance is something you should always do whenever somebody begins work on your property, especially a landscaper. When a landscaper is dealing with machinery or handling heavy pots or plants, there is always the potential for damage to be done to your property. For example a worst case scenario is if you hire them to cut a tree down, there is always the chance that it falls down the wrong way and damages your property. This is awful if it happens, but at least if the landscaper is insured, you will be taken care of and he damages will be fixed. Which is why it is important to make sure they are insured.
How long will it take you?
Since the landscaper you hire will be doing so much work on your property, it makes sense that you will want to know how long it will take them to get the job done. Certain projects can be extremely lengthy, and you will not be their only client. There is no telling how long it may take them to return to your unfinished yard unless you ask.
How can I better take care of my yard?
Your landscaper cannot do everything for you, especially since eventually the cost of it will add up. You can ask your landscaper for some tips on how to better take care of your yard. You can for tips on tasks as simple as dealing with weeds, or even how to seed to grow new plants or revitalize your lawn.
