Belmont Landscaping and Lawn Care
It can be tough, time consuming work to take care of your
lawn. Some people just don't have the time for it. In fact,
almost twenty percent of all homes are serviced by
Belmont lawn care contractors. Lawn contractors
typically take their jobs very seriously and truly want to
do a good job, which helps to maintain the veracity and
integrity of their profession. Because of this, it's not all
that difficult to find a good, fair, and reliable
It's very important that a lawn care contractor guarantee
their service. Not doing so could show that they are not
confident in their own work. If they do have a guarantee,
find out the specific details of it. Will they repair the
damage if they damage your lawn, or will they only refund
your money? Will the guarantee only be in effect if you by
all of their services?
Quality of Service
It is essential that the contractor has a reputation for
high quality service. A good indicator of this is how many
repeat customers they have. Losing twenty to thirty percent
of customers from one season to the next is normal, but a
significant loss more than that can be an indicator of poor
quality. You should also ask how quickly they will respond
to a complaint. Will you have to pay for them to come back
and work on what you complained about? It is very rare that
a contractor will charge to come back and fix a problem that
is related to the initial work that they did.
Does the lawn care contractor have a minimum amount that
they charge for their services? Will the prices change
during the season? You need to make sure that the prices are
clear before you enter into any agreement.
Does the contractor offer a written contract with details
of what will be provided for the agreed upon price? If so,
make sure to get a copy of it and keep a written record of
when he works and gets paid.
Does the contractor train his employees at all? If so,
how much? Some contractors train for up to seven days.
Employees should be able to at least identify grasses,
insects, weeds, and diseases. They should be confident in
their jobs, know what they are doing, and perform well. They
should for example know the best lawn fertilizers for your
Finally, you need to ask how experienced the employees
are. Just like with all jobs, the more experience one has,
the better they will perform their job. An experienced
employee will know how to detect, diagnose, and fix
problems. They will be ready for any problem that arises. If
the contractor has trouble keeping experienced employees,
they may not be very good to work with.
