Questions to Ask Your Landscaper

Here are the top five questions you should ask a landscape maintenance company.

What is your company’s training program for proper horticultural practices?

Many companies, like Wheat’s for example, conduct internal training in the field, while also requiring various certifications from established organizations and associations.

Are your lawn and plant health care technicians properly licensed by the state?

Having a properly licensed technician will help to ensure that your family, pets and overall environment are being taken into account when treatments and services are being done.

Am I provided with a dedicated account manager?

A dedicated account manager will give you the opportunity to have a contact that can be contacted at any time in regard to any concerns, praises or questions that you might have.

Will a professional inspect my property at regular intervals ensuring the health of my landscape?

Routine inspections will allow for regular updates of your landscape, as well as provide potential ways to enhance your outdoor space.

Does your company carry both General Liability and workman’s compensation insurance?

This will help to protect your family in the case of an accident or any damage to your property.
