Finding reliable gardening services isn’t always easy, although these tips can help. One of the best ways to find someone reliable and experienced is simply to ask your family or neighbors, especially if you see they have a great looking outdoor space. Once you have found a seemingly reputable landscaper, make sure they offer the services you specifically need, whether lawn care, weeding, paving or landscaping or anything else. It’s also a good idea to meet with them before hiring them, as that gives you an idea of the company’s experience, background and approach to their work. Don’t forget the practicalities, including their hourly rates, frequency of visits and how they expect to be paid. Your relationship with your gardener or landscaper can potentially last for many years, making it important to take the time to work with the right person.
