4 Tips for Property Managers to Pick the Right Commercial Lawn Care Company
Looking for commercial lawn care can take up a lot of your time. Finding the right lawn care company requires that you research the company and its crews to make sure that you are getting all the right services for your property or properties.
As you do this research, here are four questions to ask about commercial lawn care providers.
Does the Company Have a Good Reputation?
The quality of your property’s landscaping sends a clear message about your business. A well-kept, beautiful, and functional landscape tells potential customers that your company pays attention to detail and goes the extra mile to make things great. That’s why you need to work with a grounds care company that has a reputation for excellence.
Choose a company with a reputation for emphasizing community on a small and large scale. The company’s internal community—made up of their crews and workers—should have a strong emphasis on being a team. More than that, the company and its team members should demonstrate that they care for the community in which they serve.
Do the Crews Have the Right Qualifications and Training?
The different aspects of caring for commercial landscapes require that landscapers have proper training and qualifications. Look for a company that has all the certifications and licenses that are required on a local or national level. In addition, a company that is nationally trained to a high standard is going to provide better lawn care than one without training.
Does the Company Have Good References?
You wouldn’t hire an employee without checking references, so you shouldn’t hire a lawn care provider without checking references. Take a look at photos of past work and check out some of their existing clients’ properties to make sure you like what you see. Also take the time to talk with some of the references to ask questions about the quality of the work, how easy they are to work with, whether the crews are punctual, and more.
Can the Crews Handle Your Property’s Needs?
If you manage a large property or multiple properties, you need to make sure that the company you hire can handle the scope of the work. Does the company have enough crew members to maintain your property/properties in a timely manner? Do they have the tools they will need to service all your turf, plants, flowers, and trees?
Even if you do not manage multiple properties, it is still important to find a company that can meet all your needs. Working with just one service provider for your turf, trees, maintenance, installation, and snow and ice management saves you the time and hassle of dealing with different contractors for each.
