5 Tips for Finding the Right Landscaper this Fall

 

Having just the right landscaping for your home can mean the difference between being the owner of the most-admired home in the neighborhood and one that is barely noticed. You want an outdoor paradise that will make you proud. Here are five tips to help you find just the right landscaper for your home. 
 
1: Take Pictures of Comparable Landscapes   
 
The best way to get exactly what you are looking for is to know what you want. If you have a clear picture in your mind of what you want, take the time to look at photos, drive around neighborhoods featuring quality landscaping and write down the features that you like and want for your landscape.
 
Share your notes, photos and video with your landscaper. This will also be a big help when comparison shopping for landscapers.
 
2: Research Thoroughly 

It is important to take the time to research the landscaping companies in your area. Compare your wish list with the advertised costs from each company. As you are weighing your decision, make sure that you are looking only at companies that have an established record.
 
If you are not familiar with a particular landscaping company, check it out on the Better Business Bureau website. Choose at least three landscapers that fit your tastes and budget, and then ask for a portfolio and references from each one.

3: Get Referrals 

The best way to find out if a company can do a good job for you is to ask about the work they did for other people you know. If you like the landscaping in your own neighborhood, ask around. Ask friends and family for referrals. After all, "word of mouth" is still the best form of advertising. 

4: Keep Your Options and Your Mind Open

What you are looking for may not be feasible. The landscaper you choose may simply not have the skill needed to create the landscape that you really want. You have to decide what is most important to you.
 
Remember, you get what you pay for. If you want a world-class landscape, you have to be realistic about the costs. If you find out that what you were hoping for is a little too rich for you, find a landscaper that does a great job on a tight budget. You may find a real hidden gem of a landscaper!  

5: Take Your Time

You're going to be working closely with your landscaper and relying on that person or company for advice on how to help you care for your landscape. Don't rush and settle on a plan before you've had time to explore all your options. This last piece of advice may just be the best tip for finding the right landscaper for your home.
