Here in northern Nevada, it’s been seasonably chilly – enough to make us wish for warmer weather! Landscaping isn’t looking its best at this time of year, and if you’re staring outside and envisioning a beautiful oasis, you’re not alone. And here’s a tip – spring and summer plans for upgrades to your outdoor spaces should ideally begin now. Thoughtfully designed and expertly installed landscaping improves your outdoor living and boosts home values. But first things first – here are three tips for choosing the right northern Nevada landscaping company.
Know What You Want
Understanding what you want – a new patio space, a paver walkway, a splashy new fireplace or outdoor kitchen – will help you zero in on the kind of landscaper you need. The truth is that not all landscape companies offer the same skill set or hold the same licenses, and depending on your plans, that could become an issue. Write down all of the plans you have for your outdoor space so you’re clear on what you want. If there are any projects that involve permanent or semi-permanent installations, you should opt for a licensed landscape construction company like Harris Landscape Construction here in Reno.
Research Your Options
Once you have an idea of the kind of landscaping company you need, you can start researching your local options. Ask for referrals, and spend some time looking online. Check out company websites and any third-party reviews, then make some phone calls to go beyond that initial digital impression.
Stick with the Professionals
You should only consider licensed professionals for your project. Find out how long a company has been in business, ask for customer reviews and photos from rent projects, and inquire into their satisfaction guarantee. Ask about necessary licenses too. Any prospective company should have no qualms supplying this information, so consider it a red flag if these questions ruffle any feathers. A good landscaping contractor should have solid communication skills and be patient and understanding in their interactions with you. If you don’t get that impression, keep looking.
