Look through the phonebook or search online and you’ll find a slew of landscaping companies that offer landscape maintenance services and grass cutting services.  But how do you know which one you should choose?
We’ve heard stories about how customers have to go through one or more not so pleasant experiences before finding a landscape maintenance services team that they love.  Even if you’re simply looking for grass cutting services, there’s no reason to feel the pain of a poorly done job or a hole in the pocket.

So how do you choose the right landscape maintenance services or grass cutting services team?

It’s actually not that difficult at all.  As a company that’s been in business for a long time, we can provide some pointers on how to get through the selection process.
Here are some things you can ask –

  1. Do you have a horticulture license?
  2. This confirms that you’re dealing with a landscape maintenance services team that is licensed to be doing the job and also strives to continually learn about their craft and can assure that they are skilled enough for grass cutting services and other landscape maintenance services.

  3. How much experience do you have with lighting and water usage?
  4. When creating a gardenscape, it’s important to know how best to use natural and artificial lighting to enhance the look of your garden and give your plants the nutrients they need.  It’s also crucial to determine how to set up the irrigation for your garden to avoid over and under watering as well as water pooling.

  5. Which low maintenance plants would you recommend?
  6. Your landscape maintenance services team should be familiar with the plants that you want and have in your garden.  They should provide guidance on the maintenance needs of the plants as well as their individual needs for optimal growth.  The maintenance requirements of each plant should be discussed before integrating it into your garden.

  7. What weed prevention techniques should we use?
  8. Grass cutting services don’t end at cutting, trimming, and mulching.  They also require analysis of the yard to ensure that weeds are properly prevented and managed to ensure that they don’t spread while cutting and mulching takes place.

  9. What is your process?
  10. Whether you’re simply using their grass cutting services or have bigger landscaping needs, the landscape maintenance services team should explain how their process works.  Feel free to ask questions and determine how thoroughly and patiently these are answered.  It’s imperative that they take the time to educate you on how they work since you’re looking for a team for the long haul.

  11. Tell me about the skills and experience of the person(s) that will work on my job.
  12. It’s a good idea to find out who will be working on your project and what skillsets and experience they have with similar jobs.  If yours is an ongoing job, will there be a new individual that comes out each time or will there be a consistent person that takes the time to find out your individual likes and dislikes and takes care of your personalized needs?

  13. Can you give us some references?
  14. Find out who the team works for and what type of work they do.  Feel free to drive over and have a look at the yard and get a feel for their work.  Sometimes, the reverse can also be helpful, so if you see a well-manicured, healthy, and beautiful garden, stop in and ask the folks who takes care of their yard.
