Categories: Landscaping Company | March 22, 2018

These 3 things to avoid when hiring a landscaping company can help stop homeowners from choosing the wrong company for their specific needs. At Vandenberg’s Landscape Design, we understand how important front yard landscaping and backyard landscaping are to the overall aesthetics of a home. That is why we offer a wide range of landscaping services, including landscape design.

1. Hiring Based on Price

Hiring based on price alone is one of the most common and biggest mistakes that anyone can make when hiring a landscaping company. In most cases, choosing to go with the company that provides the lowest quote results in getting low quality materials, services, and experience. Since your landscaping is something that you have to look at on a daily basis, it is always a good idea to consider paying a little bit more to ensure that you are getting good quality work.

2. Not Doing Research

Thoroughly researching a potential landscaping company is always a good idea because it will give you a better sense of how the company operates, the kind of work they produce, and how they treat their customers. When researching a landscaping company, it is important to look at:

  • Their current website
  • Any reviews on popular Internet sites, such as Google, Houzz, Facebook, etc.
  • Affiliations with other companies
  • References from past clients
  • Pictures of previous projects

3. Not Considering Future Goals

Before hiring a landscaping company, it is always a good idea to make a list of your future landscaping goals. Doing this will give you a better idea of what you might want to add into your landscaping in the future, so that you can choose a landscaping company that is capable of handling everything you are looking for.
