5 Questions to Ask Your Landscape Contractor

When it comes to landscaping for your home, there are many landscape contractors to choose between in the London and surrounding area. However, not all landscape contractors are the same, and it’s important that you know the right questions to ask, so you can get the right contractor for your landscaping project.

1. Do you have a company portfolio?

Before choosing your landscape contractor, you should have an idea of the projects they’ve worked on in the past. If they have a website, check out their projects page. You’ll want to see as many images as you can of the work they’ve done, ensuring it is there work and not just stock photos, so you can determine whether or not they’ll be able to create your desired landscape.

2. What can I expect from the design process through to the installation?

First, we’ll complete professional scaled drawings in two- and three-dimensions to help you envision your new space. We’ll provide you with an upfront investment with no hidden fees and firm pricing. While knowing when we’ll start the project is important, it’s more important that you know when the project will be complete so you can enjoy the space, so we’ll provide you with these timelines. We’ll also let you know whether there will be any items left that you’ll have to complete or pay for when the project is finished.

3. How much experience do you have?

An experienced landscape contractor has seen it all. They are experts in problem-solving, working with backyards of all shapes and sizes, and can recommend elements for your landscaping project that you may never have considered.

4. Are you up-to-date with the latest landscaping trends?

Like any industry, landscaping is constantly changing and evolving. Each year we see new trends and exciting new elements being introduced into landscaping design.

Our team is committed to staying relevant and ensuring that your landscape design is modern and elegant, whether you choose to install an outdoor kitchen or create a gorgeous outdoor living space.

5. Is the environment important to your company?

While it may seem like a silly question to ask a landscape contractor, not every landscaping company believes in the importance of the environment.
