There a plenty of people out there who are present themselves as landscapers, however potential customers need to be aware not all is as it seems. So how can you tell if you are engaging the services of a reputable contractor or some “fly by nighter”, who will change their phone number once your job is finished.
1.Check their BSA trade license. Make sure the license is for the correct trade i.e structural landscaping. Make sure the name on the card matches the name of the company / individual you are dealing with. Make sure you get a signed contract for the work to be carried out.
2.Ask for trade references and check them out. View the contractors previous projects.
3.Don’t fall for the cheapest price. Call for more than one quote and compare the description of works and price quoted. ASK QUESTIONS!
