3 Tips for Choosing a Landscaper


Choosing the right landscaper can be tough if you don’t know what criteria to look for.

When it comes to getting the garden and landscape of your dreams, everything comes down to hiring the right landscaper for the job. While a DIY is tempting, most people don’t have the time, energy, or expertise to create the style they want. Creating a cohesive landscape and garden design takes a lot of time and effort, and finding the right landscaper for the job can make the difference between the look of your dreams and the look of your neighbor’s dreams.

Decide What You’re Looking For In Design

One of the first steps when looking for the right landscaper is to figure out why style you’re going for. If you want a modern landscape, you’ll likely be choosing a very different landscaper than someone who wants an English garden. Start by figuring out what it is that you want; you may try compiling a collection of images that highlight these design ideas. Next, you might try finding landscapes in your area that fit this aesthetic and speak with the owners to learn if they worked with a professional. Alternatively, seeing local adaptations of the style you like can help you understand how it will translate to your backyard.

Create A List Of Companies

Once you’ve got a firm grasp on your style, you can begin to find companies who can translate your ideas into reality. If you’ve spoken with local homeowners, you may be ahead of the curve. Otherwise, you should begin by asking family and friends for recommendations and look to online reviews. Next, you will want to narrow down your list to a few professionals and request a formal bid to see which is the perfect fit.

Make A Choice

Once you have your bids in hand, you’ll want to consider several factors before making your final choice. While the designs they offer might be compelling, you’ll want to make sure that the company you choose will be able to follow through. Make sure to look into their reviews, necessary or relevant licenses, levels of experience and education, certifications, liability insurance, and if they follow any values you might hold dear. Some landscapers follow environmentally friendly practices, which can be particularly important if you live near a water source that enters the bay.
