How to find a landscaper

If you need to redesign or renovate your garden, chances are you'll need a landscaper.



But how do you find a landscaper you can trust?

Personal recommendations are always a good place to start if you need a landscaper.
Use your network to see if anyone knows a landscaper who does a great job at a reasonable price.
Ask as many questions as politely possible. Did the landscaper turn up when they said they would? Did the landscaper have the right equipment in their truck so they could fix the problem straight away? Did the landscaper clean up after themselves? Was the landscaper a good listener? Did the landscaper find the right solution to your problem?

Get online and do a search for a landscaper in your region. A landscaper who is serious about their business will have a quality website that loads quickly, looks professional and is easy to navigate. The website should have all the information you need about the landscaper along with client testimonials. Call one of the landscaper's clients to hear first hand what they have to say about the landscaper in question.

If you still have no luck, contact your local landscaping supply store. Because they are dealing with landscapers every day they may be able to recommend a trustworthy and reliable landscaper in your region.

Don't rush into choosing a landscaper and if someone comes to your door offering their landscaping services be very wary. A good landscaper won't need to door knock to get business. It could be someone dodgy. Choose a landscaper under your terms not theirs!
Look for a landscaper who will guarantee their work and ask about their charges before you begin.
And get a couple of free quotes so you can compare costs before deciding on the landscaper who will do the work.
A good landscaper will have plenty of experience and know the right solution for your landscaping requirements.

Finding the right landscaper will save you time and hassle in the long run so it's well worth doing your homework before you make your final decision.

Good luck with finding the right landscaper for you!
