5 Questions to Ask Before Hiring a Landscape Architect

When beautiful weather is on the horizon, you probably have your sights set on assembling the yard. Whether you like to host parties or to relax quietly in the yard by yourself, you should know some important questions to ask landscape architects before hiring. 

1. How long will the process take?

Time is crucial when you’re hiring landscape architects. For example, if you want to have the work completed in time for a celebration you are planning to host, you must ensure that the landscaper’s timeframe matches with yours. If the initial answer is too long, ask about possible modifications to get the work done in a shorter period of time.

2. What kind of upkeep is required?

Regardless of the work you’re having done, you will likely need to keep up the space to ensure continued beauty and style. In other words, you have to make a commitment yourself, and in order to do so, asking about the required upkeep is a necessity. 

3. What chemicals do you use? 

Knowing the types of chemicals put on your lawn is of utmost importance, especially when you have children and pets who like to play on the grass. Make sure to learn about the safety of the chemicals and how the company will alert you when chemicals have been put down on the lawn.

4. What is the maintenance schedule?

You also need to know when and how often to expect the landscaping team. If you tend to spend a great deal of time outdoors, you will want to opt for a schedule that works for you.

5. What are the total costs?

In addition to getting the bottom line in terms of finances, you must also ask what the payment plan is. For example, you may need to pay all of the costs at one time, or you may pay on a seasonal or monthly basis.

Asking questions can take time now, but the process actually saves you time in the long run. You’ll have a strong sense of what to expect from your landscapers.
