Hiring Local Landscapers
Five Questions to Ask Landscaping Pros:
Big or small, your project is a significant investment. That’s why we recommend interviewing at least three qualified landscapers before making a hiring decision. Ask the following questions to determine whether a pro is the right fit for your project:
1. Are you a full-service company, maintenance company or both?
Different landscapers have different specialties. Some offer beginning-to-end services, from the very first design drawings all the way out to long-term maintenance, and others work on specific tasks.
2. How will form impact function?
Landscaping serves an aesthetic purpose, but its functionality should also be a consideration. Working with a pro who can create a design that will work with your yard’s appearance and usability is critical to your project’s success.
3. What kind of industry specialists do you have on staff?
The best landscaping companies have a deep knowledge of the best practices, including those specialized to your local area. For example, a skilled horticulturalist will know the best plants for your region and the ideal times to plant them, while an arborist will have the knowledge necessary to maintain trees.
4. What installation process will be used?
This can actually be broken down into a few categories: how they are going to build your project, what materials they will build with and what equipment they will use.
Landscaping companies should have some standard building practices and construction details for how they build each type of project.
5. Will this landscaping work with my climate?
Be sure your landscaping is suitable for your home’s environment. Work only with pros who are able to provide insight into what kind of landscaping will work best in your climate.
- How much do landscapers typically charge?
The average cost to hire a landscaper is between $40 and $80 per hour. Depending on the level of effort or task, there could be cheaper options like hiring a local teen to mow your grass, but it's to use someone qualified and licensed to do the digging, building, or leveling work
- How much are typical landscaping costs?
The average cost for a landscaping job is around $140. However, each project is different and costs can range from $100 for aeration, to several hundred dollars for lawn fertilization or leaf removal.
- Should landscapers be certified or licensed?
It depends. Is it not required for typical landscapers to be licensed since the work doesn't often require formal education or training, but for landscaping architects, where the work doesn't require technical and specialized skills, all 50 states do require the professional to be licensed. Each state has their own requirements for licensing and certifications. Check our state licensing tool to review the local landscaper guidelines.
- What questions should I ask a landscaping contractor?
There are several questions or things to know before hiring a landscaper to do any work at your home.
Are you bonded and full insured?
How long have you been in business?
Do you have any industry specialists on staff?
Will stay on the project until completion?
What's your guarantee policy?
