What to Look For in a Commercial Landscaper

Are you searching for a commercial landscaping service? There are so many of them around, that it can be difficult finding the right one for your business. Whilst your budget might seem like a priority to you right now (and we appreciate that budget is a concern), it doesn’t make sense to use this as the main criteria when choosing a landscape company. That’s because not all landscapers are equal. There are those that can give you a poor, mediocre or a brilliant result, so how do you find this illusive landscape company that can give you an awesome result for an affordable price?

Do they have the skills, qualifications and experience you need? 

First of all, you need to make sure that they’re qualified landscapers, because if you want a large retaining wall built, you need to be confident that they’ll do it properly. So ask them about their qualifications and also look for this information on their website. This is also where you’ll find information about their skills and experience because they’ll use their website to promote their business. 


It’s likely that a commercial landscaping service will specialise in a particular type of landscaping. For example, at Vorstman we specialise in creating modern landscapes to suit your lifestyle and budget. So check out their website and find out where their specialities lie and make sure that they match your requirements. Also make sure that the company has all the necessary insurance policies (such as professional and public indemnity and work cover), reducing your risks if an accident occurs on-site.

Do they have a good reputation?

You also need to know if the commercial landscaping service has a good reputation in the local community, because this also gives you confidence in the company. To look into their reputation, you can ask the company for contact details of previous commercial clients who are happy to talk to you about their experience. You can also ask for recommendations from friends, employees and other businesses in the area, as well as via social media networks. Has anyone ever used the landscaping company? Would they recommend them? Do they have any other recommendations?

Arrange to meet the commercial landscaping service on-site

Once you have checked the background of the landscaping company, it’s a good idea to meet them face to face on-site. This is because you can get a much better idea of who you’ll be working with and whether they ring any alarm bells. You want a company that is prepared to listen to your needs, offer any advice or ideas, and doesn’t run roughshod over you. Also, if you are interested in a particular service they offer, for example sustainable practices, this is the time to talk about how these practices can be incorporated into your landscaping design. If everything works out and you think you can work with your chosen company, then ask them for a free quote and take it from there.
