Questions to Ask Your Outdoor Landscape Contractors

A home with stone front steps and a landscaped yard.

So you’ve started thinking that maybe it’s time to update your outdoor landscape. Maybe your pool area needs remodeling or you aren’t happy with your current patio setting. Once you’ve decided that remodeling is for you, the next step is finding the right contractors to complete the job. With landscape design being such a competitive business, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed with all of the choices available to you. That’s why it’s important to have a consultation with your prospective contracting team before you sign on to an agreement.
Once you schedule your consultation, the next step is figuring out what you want from your ideal team. The best way to figure this out is to make a list of details that fit your budget, time, and vision and create a list of questions to ask to see which landscape design company meets your specific needs. Here is a list of some questions you should ask when trying to find the perfect contracting company.

1)What installation processes will you use? Every contracting company has a building process that they use specifically for their business. Every process varies depending on the company. During your consultation make sure that the business in question explains their installation processes fully so that you understand and feel comfortable with their decisions.
2) Are you insured? This should be a question asked of anyone who does hard labor around your home. Accidents happen and it’s nice to know that everyone will be taken care of in the chance of one.
3) Do you maintain what you install? This is arguably one of the more important questions needed to ask. Some companies have a division that will help maintain their work after it is installed. The best example of this is landscapers that help maintain the aesthetic of your lawn or garden area. While this may not be a big deal to some, it’s nice to know that your contracting company cares about the quality of their work even after they’re done building it.
4) How long have you been in business? Not 100% guaranteed but typically the longer a company has been in business the better chance that you can trust their quality of work.
5) Are you able to give me an accurate estimate of possible costs? For some, budget is what makes or breaks a contracting deal. You want to make sure that a contracting company can give you what you want while sticking with what you can afford. While some may be uncomfortable discussing money, it’s important to make sure that you are getting the biggest bang for your buck.

  • “Last June, my wife and I contacted Outdoor Makeover regarding replacing the “weeds” in our front lawn with sod, replacement of all shrubs in the front and back yards and the planting several new trees throughout our property. Once we confirmed the design plan, the Outdoor Makeover crew got started immediately. The job soon took on a life of its own and Navid and his crew were ready and willing to be flexible and get the job done. It is a pleasure to work with a professional that understands the meaning of good communication and customer service. The project came out perfect and we are very happy with our new lawn, shrubs and trees. We look forward to a mutually beneficial, long-term relationship with Outdoor Makeover.”

  • “We contacted a number of landscapers before we found Outdoor Makeover. Navid and Omid worked hard on improving our front and backyard. They worked quickly and diligently and now we have a beautiful lawn and outdoor entertainment area. Their customer service was excellent. They called or emailed us a number of times just to make sure everything was right and we were satisfied. Great Job - Great Customer Service - Great People!”

    Patrice & David Alpharetta, GA

  • “While we had a general idea of some things we wanted done, Navid was able to envision a work product beyond that which we could have imagined. In addition to being very accessible, Navid was very customer focused and was intent throughout the project of ensuring that our expectations were met. We were amazed at his team’s ability to execute so quickly from “design” to final product. Expectations were more than exceeded, and we would certainly use Navid and Outdoor Makeover on future projects.”

  • “Navid and the Outdoor Makeover team are top notch. They found solutions within our price range and help us accomplish our most important priorities. Further, even after we paid them in full and needed them to come back to touch up some items, they came back within 1 week. This is UNHEARD of these days! I would highly recommend them to everyone!”

    Ryan E. Marietta, GA

  • “Navid and his team have exceptional vision and incredible talent for design.
    Outdoor Makeover delivered a plan that is much better than the competitors from design to build. I ended up with an exceptional result that I totally love and enjoy daily. I am very proud to show off my special area in my yard and everyone loves hanging outside now; Navid asked questions to figure out my lifestyle. Furthermore, Navid discovered what I needed and wanted, of which I was unaware when we started the process.”
