Hiring a Landscaper Outdoor Living Area Spring Color Irrigation Lawn Repair Designing with Palms Fall Color Landscape Lighting

Before I became the owner of Palm Gardens, one of my biggest frustrations with hiring a landscaper for my own home was finding someone that did quality work and was there when I needed them.

The best landscaping companies not only do an excellent job on the exterior of your home, but earn your trust through communication and personal attention. Below are a few tips to make sure you hire the right landscaper for your home or business:

Referrals - a good place to begin your search is asking friends or neighbors that have used professional landscapers for a referral. As an added bonus, asking your neighbors who does such a wonderful job on their yard is an easy way to make friends in your community. Palm Gardens is pleased to provide a list of referrences to help you learn more about our work.

Comprehensive Services - you'll find all different types of companies during your search, but it's important to remember that your landscaping is an extension of your home or business and should not be treated as a commodity product. Make sure the landscaper you choose can perform all of the services needed for your propery including design, construction, installation, and maintenance.

Do Your Homework - If you're ready to stop reading now and hire Palm Gardens that is definitely ok with me. Otherwise, here are a few items to review as you consider different companies:

  • Ask for (and follow up on) references.
  • Require up-to-date proof of liability and workers' compensation insurance.
  • Find out if the owner or manager will be personally involved in your project.
  • Ask about guarantees on materials (for example, Palm Gardens guarantees the flowers and plants we use in your yard).
  • Request pricing and work schedules in writing.

Communication - make sure you are on a first name basis with ownership and can quickly communicate your needs and ideas, as well as suggestions for improvements. Personal attention and communication are something that I strive
for--every Palm Gardens customer has my cell phone and email and I like to stop by from time to time to personally say hello.
