Landscaper – As you build your Power Team you may want to have several questions that you ask each potential member.

There is not an exact script to interview a company that may perform landscaping services, but here are several questions you can consider asking your Landscaper:

1. Can your company provide maintenance of the plants, landscape, lighting, etc. that your company will install?

2. Why should I have a scaled landscape design or drawing for my project?

3. Are your plants, evergreens, trees, and shrubs locally grown in this area?

4. What is your process to install pavers or a retaining wall for my project?

5. Are you a Certified Segmental Retaining Wall Installer or Interlocking Concrete Paver Installer?

6. With all the different options, how do I determine that I am getting the best quality and value for my landscape dollar?

7. How is the site prepared prior to starting work for my project?

8. What soil is being used and at what depth do you plant shrubs, plants, etc.

9. What type of mulch or lava rock is being used and how thick is it applied?

10. What type of irrigation system is being installed?

11. What size plants are being used for my project?

12. When planting, what is included with the planting?

13. How long is the maintenance period for my home?

14. Is there a guarantee on the plants survival? If so, how long.

15. Is all the trash removed from the worksite?

16. Are permits required for the job and if so will you acquire them?

17. Are you licensed, bonded and insured?

18. How long have you been in business and can you provide references?

19. Can I get an email and secondary number either cell phone number or office phone to contact you with further questions?
