By author On November 19, 2010 Under Uncategorized

If you have a considerably big garden then you definitely would want to have it landscaped to enhance its natural beauty or add to its existing glamor. But for most people, whenever they hear the words landscaping and landscape design, they immediately associate it with the rich and the famous, with grand gardens that are as big as parks. But no matter what the size of your garden may be, it will surely benefit from a professional landscaping service from a reputable and experienced Melbourne landscaper.

Landscaping your home is no doubt a very big task that often you find it hard to even know how to begin. If you are going to do it all by yourself, you can easily run out of landscape design ideas before you even get started with the actual work. That is why it is often to your benefit to just hire a landscape contractor, at least to help you with thinking of the best approach to landscaping your garden or home.

Therefore in choosing the best landscaping service, you will have to ask some questions and do some research as well. Because not only will you be spending a considerable amount of your money on that service, but that the beauty of your garden will be affected as well. And as much as possible, when choosing a garden landscaper, go with someone that has a good standing with its previous clients and that has a good portfolio.

1. How long have you been in business?

Experience counts a lot in the landscaping business. Ask your potential landscaper how many years has he been doing this kind of job. Usually a decade of experience is more than enough to give your trust on that specific contractor.

2. Can I look at your portfolio?

A good landscaper should be keeping a portfolio of his previous jobs. These are usually photos of the homes and gardens he had performed his landscaping services. Although pictures can tell a thousand things about the real project, it is often enough to gauge the capabilities of the landscaper.

3. Can I contact your previous clients?

A landscaping contractor who is confident that he has been doing a great job all these years will let you contact his former customers. This is perhaps the best form of research that you can do.

4. What will be the time frame for my landscape project?

This is an important questions more especially if the landscaping project will be considered as a major one. Why? Because your living situations in your own house might be disturbed because of all the works to be done on your garden.

5. Can you provide me with a detailed estimate of the expenses?

You should always ask for a quotation and if you are about to say yes to the contractor, a fully detailed estimate of all the costs. Unless you have unlimited budget, make sure that you know exactly what you are paying for because a landscaping service may cost you an arm and a leg if you do not plan it well.
