Knowing these questions to ask before hiring a landscape designer can help you choose the best landscaping company to work with on your next big project. At Jovak Landscape and Design, we understand how important it is to work with the best landscaping company for the job. That is why we offer a wide range of landscaping services for all types of landscaping projects, including landscape design, landscape construction, and landscape installation services.
The first thing you should always do when interviewing a potential landscaping company for your project is to make sure that they offer the services that you need. Since not all landscape design companies offer a wide range of landscaping services, consider finding a company that can help with your entire project not just a portion of it.
Take the time to consider the style of designer in relation to the type of garden you want. If the landscape design company’s portfolio does not include the particular style you are looking for, check out their credentials to see if they have the training to turn your vision into a reality.
A landscaping company’s process will depend on the services they offer. Take the time to get to know their process and whether you or the designer is responsible for overseeing each step. This will give you a good idea of what to expect once the project is underway and how much you will need to be involved.
Since installation of a landscape design is dependent on a number of factors—size and scope of project, availability of contractors, ordering and delivery of materials and plants, weather conditions, and unexpected setbacks—consider asking for an estimated completion time rather than asking for the work to be done by a certain date.
Make sure that you are upfront with your landscape designer about the amount of time and commitment you are willing to give to your garden. This will help them determine which garden style and plants will work best for your particular space and needs.
