What to Look for in Landscape Maintenance Servicefrom: Lawn and Garden Magic
When you're searching for a landscape service for your home, there are quite a few things that you should keep in mind. After all, not all landscape services are created equal. Care for your yard should be something that you take seriously, because it provides enjoyment, beauty and can even save you money on energy and food costs. If you decide to hire a landscape service, make sure you get the right one for you.
Different homeowners have different needs for their landscapes. Not everyone is looking for a landscape service that does everything. Some people simply want someone who will mow the lawn and fertilize it on occasion. Others want perfect yards with topiary shrubs and weed-free flowerbeds. If all you're looking for is basic lawn mowing and maybe some leaf raking and debris clean up, then the neighborhood kid who mows lawns is probably enough landscape service for you. And that's just fine. It helps a young kid learn the value of working for her or his money, and you have an easier time caring for your lawn. If you like to have a nice yard, but don't want to do anything with it yourself, then a more full-service operation is probably what you need in the way of landscape maintenance.
When choosing who will take care of your landscape maintenance needs, the first thing you should do is seek out a reputable company, one that has reliable references, and one that has a satisfied customer base. If you notice a certain company taking care of the landscape surrounding a house in your neighborhood, go ask your neighbor about the company. That will allow you to find out from someone you're acquainted with whether or not the service is a good one.
Another thing to look for in a landscape maintenance service is the equipment. Does it look to be in good shape? You want a company that takes good care of its equipment; that shows that they are more likely to take good care of your yard. Additionally, you want to make sure they're using the right equipment. Find out what they plan to use to perform various tasks in your yard. Even if you're not doing the yard work yourself, you should have at least a basic understanding of what your yard needs. That way you'll be able to tell if you are being hoodwinked.
You shouldn't necessarily go with the cheapest service. You can find out if various services offer to care for your yard for a week at a time to see how each service does. The cheapest may not always be the best deal. If you're habitually dissatisfied with the cheaper work, that may affect you in ways that make it worth it to pay an extra $20 per month for landscape maintenance that is of higher quality. Shop around and compare the work done by various companies. Then hire the best company that you can afford for your budget. You may not be able to afford the absolute best, but you should hire the best that fits into your landscape budget. Get price quotes in writing so that when you decide to go with one company, and they hike your cost, you have a written quote to back you up.
Find a company that cares about customer service. Make sure you find out what their policy is on redoing work that doesn't meet your satisfaction. You want to be sure that your specifications are met and that your landscaping maintenance service is willing to fix mistakes and that they are willing to do a little extra pruning if they missed a few branches. Companies that don't care about customer service will probably not do a good job. You should look for a service that takes pride in its work. If the company says it specializes in lawn care (creating a greener, lusher, healthier lawn) and offers fertilization services, make sure that you choose a company that offers a guarantee. You don't want one of their employees to over-fertilize the lawn and then leave you paying the bill for a dead lawn that needs to be replaced.
