Selecting the right professional landscaping service can be difficult, especially if you don’t know what questions you should ask. Researching your desired professional landscaping service company is crucial. They need to be able to communicate with you and know what you’re looking for and have the confidence and expertise to complete the work. Use these tips so you know what to look for in a landscaping service professional to make the process as smooth as possible.


Do your research and look at all your options for landscaping services in your area. Look at all the services they offer and compare them with other companies in the area. For references, you can look into past projects, client testimonials and reviews to answer these questions about the landscaping service:

  • Did they do a good job?
  • Are their clients happy?
  • Does the landscaper provide referrals or testimonials?
  • What does a typical project look like for them?

Know What You Want Done

Make sure you have a clear picture of what you’re looking for and be sure to convey that image to your potential landscape contractors to see how they react to your requests. Put all your wants and needs on paper. Compare that list to the services offered and experiences of each contractor to ensure they match. When it comes down to it, it’s your lawn and you know how you want it to look.


While contractors who have been in business for decades have experience and reputation behind them, new contractors with just a few years of experience may have fresh ideas and potentially cost less as they are just starting out. Find out the contractor’s experience level with the type of project you have in mind. This is just as important as their overall experience in the profession. The more specialized the project is, the more you need to check their credentials for doing that type of work.
