Determine the scope of the job, and which services you will expect from the contractor – install plant material, build decks and patio, install retaining walls, install irrigation systems and nighttime lighting are a few of the services provided by landscape contractors.
Thoroughly investigate the business – how long has it been in operation? – what levels of experience and education do the workers have? – Request recent references and check out these – see the jobs.
Insurance is a significant concern….the character of landscaping work requires comprehensive insurance – both liability and worker's compensation – request proof of insurance. Is your company affiliated with national or local trade organizations? – This may indicate a high degree of quality and professionalism.
What about the little man, just starting out? If I had not been given an opportunity over thirty years back by my first few clients, I'd not be writing this now. I am amazed that so many understanding people gave a scruffy looking young guy in an old pick up an opportunity!
So that you may occasionally find a conscientious young man to provide services at an affordable price. The main issue is to check references, talk about the project thoroughly and insist on a written contract. If a prospect is enthusiastic and seems to really love the work, you could be on the right path.
