With proper landscaping – remember, a beautiful backyard is just one more reason to invite your loved ones over for a potluck under the stars – you can achieve that “at-home” feel of comfort and security no matter where you go, whether you’re spending time indoors or out.

But a lot more goes into designing an exquisite landscape than just throwing down sod and soil. And while landscaping businesses abound, you might not know where to begin. Award-winning landscape contractor, Steve Dewald of Steve’s Gardening Service, shares three of his best tips when it comes to picking the right landscaper for your property.

1. Licensing and Insurance Matters
Before you begin a consultation, make sure the landscaper you’re considering is licensed and insured. In fact, any job over $1,000 requires contractors to have insurance and a license. A landscaper with these qualifications shows they know “the principles of business and how to do a job,” Dewald says.

2. Ask for References
Just like any other job application, be sure to “ask for references of past clients” from your potential landscaper, Dewald suggests. If possible, visit old job sites to see the quality of their work, especially if you’re looking to have specific features installed. 

3. It’s a Match
When looking for the right landscaper, “make sure your personalities match,” says Dewald. “You’ve got to be able to get along, and make sure both parties are talking to each other and listening.” Choosing someone you’re comfortable working with will ensure that ideas are thoroughly discussed and properly executed.
