Whether you own just one beautiful piece of personal property or several businesses with outdoor space, you need a good landscaping company. When you're on the hunt for the right landscaping service or supplier, consider what your goals are for your landscape, the options you want, and the kind of service you expect. Here are some helpful questions to ask landscaping companies so you can narrow your choices down to the best in the business.
What types of services does your landscaping company provide?
In some cases, you may have to hire two landscapers to do different parts of a job; but if you can find one company that provides all the services you need and all the necessary supplies as well, it's a win-win. Ask if the landscaping company if they can do the installation and provide regular maintenance for hardscapes, plants, trees, bushes, lighting fixtures, and other elements of the overall landscape.
Does your landscaping company have workman's compensation insurance?
The last thing you want is to be liable for an injury that occurs while the landscapers are working on your property; and your homeowner's insurance probably won't help you in that event. The best landscaping companies have insurance policies that cover such incidents so you won't have to worry about a lawsuit.
Where can I find references or testimonials from your other clients?
Many landscaping companies, including Kurtz Bros., have testimonials listed on their website. You can also check online review sites to find out what other clients of the company have said about their service and processes. Ask for specific references if you feel that the testimonials or online reviews aren't giving you enough information.
Do you have a website?
Any modern landscaping company should have a website where its customers can go to order supplies and products, find information, or request services. Find out the address of the company website and explore their online offerings. Checking out the website should give you a sense of their customer service mindset and the ease of the ordering process.
Can a new customer create an online account?
Allowing customers to create personal online accounts allows for more customized service. A great landscaping company lets you have your own account to speed up the ordering process. If you are using the company for your home property, having an account is helpful; but it's even more convenient if you are a business owner running several properties. You can save multiple addresses in the account and quickly select them anytime you need to order materials or supplies.
