How to Find a Great Landscaper

Find the landscaper of your choice with these pointers.

Your yard doesn’t have to be mediocre; it can be beautiful. The difference between an okay landscape and a great one can be the difference in who you choose as your landscaper. On top of that, even if you do receive a fantastic result, other factors could make it more or less worth it. Here’s how to find a great landscaper in Maryland.

Collect Local Options & Research

Do a quick online search for top landscapers in your area. It is best to limit yourself to local options not too large a radius away from your home. A local landscaper will be more convenient to reach and will likely have experience with your type of property. For example, Michael Bryan Landscapes is familiar with landscapes between Maryland and Northern Virginia.

Determine Your Landscaping Goals

A crucial determining factor is what your landscaping goals are. Do you need someone who can build a swimming pool? Are you looking for a new patio or fence? Do you need help improving your lawn? You might be searching for a tree and flower specialist. Look for a landscaper who can do what you need.

Determine Your Budget

It’s also important to set a budget. Without one, it can be easy to go overboard. Find a landscaper that can provide the service you need within a budget that works for you. 

Check for Landscaper Qualifications

A landscaper could have different qualifications, depending on their specialization, but all should be bonded and insured so that any mishap cost falls on them and not you. Each landscaper should also have a license, such as a horticulturist, arborist, etc. If the landscaper does not have a license, he will have a professional certification with a relevant association.

Check Landscaper Reviews

As you research each candidate online, look at their reviews to see what customers have to say. It can help you gauge what to expect.

Look for Compatibility

Even if you love their portfolio, it isn’t worth working with a landscaper with whom you feel uncomfortable. A landscaping project could be a process of a few weeks to a few months, and good communication and camaraderie will make it much smoother and pleasanter.
