What You Want in a Landscape Contractor

Use these tips to pick your next landscape contractor.

One of the simple pleasures in life is coming home to a captivating landscape. The only problem is that it takes a lot of effort to maintain your landscape and preserve its beauty. Sometimes, you don’t have the time to handle that kind of work on your own, or you might not have the expertise to get your yard so stunning. That’s when you want a landscape contractor in your corner to handle that work for you. But how do you choose one? Use these tips to pick your next landscape contractor.


Thanks to the power of the Internet, finding reviews on people is easier than ever. Just a simple Google search is useful for getting whatever reviews you need. Your landscape contractor should have plenty of positive reviews supporting their work. Also, the contractor you look at should be able to direct you to past clients who were satisfied with the services they were given.

Detailed Work Portfolio

A landscape contractor who has many years of work experience should be ready to present you images of their past successful projects. Seeing their work portfolio lets you see the quality of work they provide, and whether or not they are going to give you the quality of work you want. If the landscape contractor you speak with doesn’t show you a portfolio, that’s a sign of unprofessionalism, meaning you should probably steer clear of them.

Insurance and WCB

You want your landscape contractor to be covered if an accident takes place on your property. That’s why you should go with someone who is covered by an insurance policy, as well as Worke’s Compensation Board (WCB). It’s an extra level of security knowing that you’re covered financially if something like an injury happens.


While first impressions aren’t the be-all-end-all for landscape contractors, they certainly help. That’s why any good landscape contractor should always be presentable. They should wear clothes suitable for the work they take on, meaning they wear steel toe footwear, heavy types of pants, and easily visible clothing. Your contractor should also be clean, organized, and dedicated to ensuring no damage comes to your property during the project.


Most capable contractors have many years of experience in the field. While novice workers come and go, true professionals will thrive for years, even decades. So when you look for a landscape contractor, try to find one with plenty of experience who has worked on enough properties to know exactly what’s best for you.
