Hiring a landscaping design company in order to turn your backyard into the oasis you’ve been dreaming of is understandably exciting. After all, up to 64% of homeowners are upgrading their backyards and now you get to be one of them.
But before you get too excited, it’s important that you keep a level-head when to comes to deciding which landscape design company you should hire. You want to be sure not only that your backyard will come out of the process looking elegant and wonderful, but also that you won’t have any regrets.
Here are three ways you can ensure the landscape design company you hire will leave you inspired rather than wanting more:
Research the landscape design company’s experience
One of the most essential things to look for in landscape design companies is their experience. In the design and business world, experience means improved knowledge and improve skill. A landscape designer who has been in the field for years will have more knowledge regarding fertilization, drainage problems, plant care, types of organic landscaping products, etc. In other words, the more experience a landscaping firm has the more likely they are to know what they’re doing.
Have a property assessment done on your home
Professional landscape design firms will have a property assessment done on your home before they agree to work on your landscaping. This is also important for you as the homeowner because the pricing of the design may differ according to the size of your yard, any existing problems on the property, and the landscaping conditions in general. If a company fails to offer you an assessment, it’s a bad sign.
Understand your own landscaping goals
Landscape design firms differ. Therefore, you’ll want to have an idea for what it is that you want in the design before hiring a company. For instance, if you dislike lawn maintenance, odds are you’ll want to hire a landscaping professional that will be able to provide you with natural stone in the landscaping design. Additionally, if you want to include a backyard pavilion in your landscaping design, hiring a company that only offers basic lawn care won’t be able to help you build your dream yard.
Finding the right landscape design firm for your backyard is not only essential for the visual appeal of your home, but also for your general happiness. For a safe and beautiful landscaping experience for your backyard, contact Alderwood Landscaping today.
