Hard to believe but it’s not always “about the price.” For some, it’s more about getting good value for the money. Part of that value is feeling confident in your choice.Take the time to look at a company’s values and you increase your chances of a successful relationship. Here are a few qualities to consider:
Communication is the key to great service.
I have taken phone calls from homeowners who said “I couldn’t get that other company to call me back?” or “That company gave me a design and it wasn’t what I was looking for.” Time spent talking about how you use your yard, what landscape elements are on your wish list and how best to achieve those goals is important. It’s about respect.
This isn't about whether or not the company has the certifications and background education/experience to prove they know what they are talking about. True, all that is important. However, if you are going to go with a brand new landscape, the designer should be willing to:
Landscaping isn't gardening. It's construction. Choose a company with the equipment and expertise to get the job done right.
The company you choose should be willing to take the time to go over details. You’ve heard the expression “the devil is in the details”? Well, the details make the difference between a good landscape and a great one.
Last but not least it’s about professionalism….in other words…
Clean, well-kept trucks are an indication of a well-run operation.
Choosing a landscape contractor is easier than you think. Finding the qualities above in a company will bolster your confidence that the job will be done correctly and your experience top-notch.
