The Benefits of Hiring a Professional Landscaper

Hiring a Professional Landscaper, Landscape Maintenance, Lawn Care Tips

Why should you hire a professional landscaper? The care of your lawn should not be entrusted to just “any guy with a mower and a truck.” Consider what may happen when that guy decides it’s now too hot outside, and, as a result, he doesn’t show up? Unfortunately, this is often the case. Each August, our professional lawn care company gets an avalanche of phone calls from prospective new clients telling us the story of how their lawn guy “just disappeared.”

With your busy schedule, you can save your precious time and energy by allowing us to take over all of your Landscape Maintenance Services. While comparing lawn care companies, consider the old adage, ‘You get what you pay for’.

They should be a trusted partner who provides advice and guidance on ways to improve your yard and landscape.” At A Clean Cut Lawn Care, we do exactly that!

When hiring a Professional Landscaper, here are some helpful tips to select a quality landscaper.

First, make sure they are well qualified. Industry standards can vary, so hire a professional with a good reputation. Be clear on your needs and compare them with the services they provide.

Look at social media sites for a rating that is 4-stars or above, such as that of A Clean Cut Lawn Care. Great customer reviews are also important for making sure a company has a good customer service record. Ask for references and check out samples of their work. 

Be sure they can prove that they are fully licensed and that they carry liability insurance. Are they certified in the proper use of chemicals, like fertilizers and pesticides? In the event of an accident, even a broken window, you’ll want to know that both you and your property are protected, both legally and financially. At A Clean Cut Lawn Care, we fulfill all of these requirements.

Check to see that the company is affiliated with a National or State Association, as is A Clean Cut Lawn Care. The NALP, for instance, is the national trade association representing nearly 100,000 landscape industry professionals in the United States. Member companies specialize in lawn care, landscape design and installation, landscape maintenance, tree care, irrigation and water management, and interior plantscaping.

How long have they been in business? What level of experience do staff members have in their industry? Do they employ certified, accredited staff members? Do their employees wear uniforms and present a clean and professional appearance? 

Is all this necessary, you ask? Well, you’re paying them. When hiring an expert, such as those at A Clean Cut Lawn Care, you can expect to get great results!

Look for a company that provides regular safety training for their staff. Continuing education is a good indication of a company’s professionalism and commitment to keep up with changes in the industry. Are their trucks and equipment clean, commercial grade, and well maintained to perform and deliver excellent results? At a Clean Cut Lawn Care, our Professional Landscapers have the experience, equipment, and know-how to take your investment and transform your yard into the vision of your dreams.

Ask the landscape contractor to prepare the details of your agreement in writing, including all costs and services, plants to be used, and the dates for planned services and when they’ll be on the property. You should want a company that is reliable and one that communicates well when changes occur. Perhaps a long-term contract is not in your best interest. If you want to be able to cancel at any time, you will still want a detailed contract for big projects. A Clean Cut Lawn Care fulfills these requirements, providing you with a reliable contract and trustworthy service.

If your needs involve hiring a landscape contractor, designer, and/or architect, your search for a professional gets more involved. Here is a link to an article, “10 Questions to Ask Before Hiring a Landscape Designer” via Fox News Outdoor Living.
