3 Questions You Should Ask Your Landscaping Contractor, Honolulu, Hawaii

Before you hire a landscaping contractor, you’ll want to do your research to find the right person for the job. It’s a good idea to find someone with plenty of experience who is licensed and insured. But what other questions should you ask beyond these basics?

3 Answers You’ll Need From Your Landscaping Contractor

1. Will My Project Get Done on Time?

Before you sign a contract or pay a deposit, you’ll want to find out how long it will take until your project is completed. However, estimates are not perfect, and your project may not get done in time. In that case, you’ll want to make sure that your chosen contractor will stick around until it’s finished instead of starting work on someone else’s yard and dividing their time.

2. Can You Show Me Examples of Your Work?

Beautiful landscaping can be subjective, and every designer has a different style. It’s important to view your contractor’s portfolio to find out if you like the kind of work they have done. Whether you visit previous clients in person or look at pictures of previous projects is up to you.

You should find out if your landscaping contractor has the required specialists on staff for your project. Their crew might be great at laying sod and installing a retaining wall, but you’ll need an arborist when you’re dealing with trees. If you’re hiring them to install plants in your yard, then they hopefully have a horticulturist on staff who knows which plants are best for your area.
