5 Things To Consider When Choosing A Landscaper for Your Home or Business
If you are a property owner, property manager, or homeowner, you know the personal investment you have in your property, and by proxy, your landscape. Ensuring that it is well taken care of, free of debris, and generally safe for your visitors is just the tip of the iceberg. If you hope to attract attention, whether it be potential buyers as a homeowner or new business as a property manager, your landscape needs to exceed expectations. Selecting the right landscaping company to manage your property is an important decision, and there are many factors to consider. Choosing the wrong company could lead to disastrous consequences, hurting your pockets. As a landscaping company with a 70 plus year history of working with residential, commercial, and municipal properties, we feel like it is safe to say we are an authority on the topic. Here are five things to consider when choosing a landscaper for your home or business.
Credibility, Experience, and History
This may seem like a biased addition to the list, as we just mentioned our decades of experience in the landscaping industry, but it is a vital part of choosing a landscaper. You never want to go with a company that is brand new, with no work history or reviews to speak of. Any reputable company will splash positive testimonials across digital material and have transparent information about the history of the company easily accessible. Just a red flag to avoid if you can, you want to pick a landscaper who has worked on your property before, rather than be an experiment for new processes.
Quality of Work
It is fair to say that experience in a given field leads to a high quality of work. Repeated actions always lead to increase incompetency, and the same can be said of landscaping. Not only should past work look good, but there should also be quality assurance programs in place to ensure that work is up to standard. As well as dedicated contacts in case you as the client feel like the quality is inadequate. Increased quality of work means a better-looking property, and maximizing the visibility of your property and other benefits you hope to gain from landscaping.
The last thing you want to do as a busy commercial property manager or municipal official is managing an extra contract because one landscaping company does not provide all the services you require. A company large enough to provide necessary services will also likely have more commercial-grade equipment, which allows for a greater scope of work. This entire process is simplified when you are able to work with one landscaping company for an extended period of time, growing a long-term relationship.
Educational Material and Transparency
Many landscaping companies are deathly afraid of publishing their property management secrets, thinking that customers will no longer have a need for their services. We believe this could not be further from the truth, which is why we make so many resources readily available to our clients or potential clients, in hopes that educated decisions will be made. At Pezza, we do not just want to perform services, we want to work with you, treating you like a partner.
