One of the first things many people will notice about your workplace is its landscape. You will make a great first impression with a well-maintained and aesthetically pleasing landscape. An aesthetically pleasing landscape will turn heads and help create an environment your employees will love.

Whether you want to design a new landscape from scratch or plan to revamp an existing one to make your office feel more welcoming, it makes sense to hire a landscape company in Santa Rosa. When looking for a landscape company, remember that not all companies measure up.

You’ll want to work with a company with a good track record and ability to understand their clients’ unique needs and develop customized landscaping solutions to meet them.

To determine if a landscape company in Santa Rosa is the right fit, ask them the following questions.

What is your experience?

Just because a landscaping company has been around for decades does not necessarily mean you should automatically choose it over other players. Although, a company that has been bringing its clients’ visions to life for several years is more likely to be capable of managing your project from start to finish than an amateur.

Look for a landscaping company with a proven track record of success. When considering a company, check online reviews and ratings. Talk to friends and other business owners who have hired a landscaping company in Santa Rosa in the past.

Do you offer warranties?

An experienced and reputable landscape professional is confident in their abilities. They offer warranties that cover the cost of repairs or corrections in case something goes wrong within the warranty period.

It is a standard practice for landscape professionals to offer a one-year warranty. Some landscape professionals offer extended warranties. Before hiring a landscape company, inquire about the nature and scope of your warranty. Ask what is covered and what’s excluded and what can void it.

 Do you have insurance?

If your contractor does not have worker’s compensation insurance and someone on their team gets injured while working on your property, you may be held liable for damages and may have to bear the expenses of the treatment of the injured employee.

Can you provide references?

A reputable company will be more than happy to provide references. When interviewing a contractor’s references ask them to describe their experience when they hired the landscaping company in the past. Research the company’s landscape portfolio and examine the work that they completed for past clients. Find out if the project was completed on-time and on-budget.

Will you use subcontractors?

Landscape contractors use subcontractors for large projects. If your contractor intends to use subcontractors, ask them whether you will have a dedicated person for the entire project. Enquire if you will have to deal with them. Ask your contractor if they have a plan to maintain effective communication between all the parties involved.
