As the weather warms and fresh green shoots start making their appearance, more and more people are thinking about landscaping. Choosing a landscaping company often involves a few considerations — pricing and range of services will play a role, but one of the biggest factors often comes down to company reputation. Here’s why that’s a good thing.
The Power of Word of Mouth
One of the greatest compliments any business can receive is when a customer recommends its services to their friends and family. Harris Landscape Construction here in Reno has been serving the community since 1973, and it’s truly an honor that the majority of our new customers have been recommended by past customers.
Our approach to landscape construction is simple — quality craftsmanship based on decades of experience, paired with a commitment to customer service on every project. Positive word of mouth is a sign that we’re succeeding in that approach, and it’s been that way for decades.
How to Find a Landscaper Based on Reputation
One of the best ways to find a great landscaper is to ask friends and family for recommendations. If you’ve ever admired a beautiful outdoor kitchen, new patio, paver driveway, or any outdoor elements, ask about the company behind the work. Generally, people are quick to share feedback about the experience — the good, the bad, and the ugly.
Once you have a few names, spend some time researching the companies online. What do third-party reviews on Google or Facebook have to say? How does the company respond to its reviews? What does the company website look like? Is there a well-maintained blog? It may seem insignificant, but a company blog is designed to be useful and relevant not just to prospective customers, but to anyone looking for expert advice in a given field.
If you’re getting a good feeling after a personal recommendation and a quick look online, the next step is reaching out directly. Spring is a very busy season for landscaping companies in Reno and Sparks, and this year in particular is even busier than usual. But if you’re considering landscaping projects, it’s important to speak to a company rep directly — it’s the best way to decide if this is a company with which you’d consider moving forward.
At Harris Landscape Construction, our biggest focus is exceeding our customers’ expectations every time, so that they’ll be moved to share their experience with our company. If that makes us sound like a company you’d be comfortable working with, we’d love to hear more about your outdoor space plans. We invite you to contact us today.
