What your landscape maintenance contractor should take care of

There are many landscape maintenance contractors advertising their services online. While the idea of hiring a company to take care of your lawn and garden sounds great, it’s not always easy to figure out exactly what their role and responsibilities should be when it comes to maintaining your garden. Here’s an overview of the things you should expect from your landscape maintenance contractor:

Full service lawn care

Hedge Trimming

If you wanted someone to simply mow your lawn, you could hire someone for an hour to get the job done quickly. When you partner with a landscape maintenance contractor, however, they should be taking care of everything from the lawn to the bushes and shrubs in order to enhance the look of your garden.

If your garden needs an irrigation service, your landscape maintenance contractor should either be able to design and install this for you or recommend somebody to take care of the job. It should be your landscape contractor’s responsibility to make sure all your plants are receiving enough water.

Besides your vegetation and lawn, the landscape maintenance contractor should also take care of other non-living things in your garden, such as rocks, bark, pebbles and water features, which all require periodic maintenance.

A landscape contractor will have different duties during different seasons. In winter, for example, you can expect snow plowing and snow removal services. Reputable companies will usually have experienced landscape technicians who are able to advise clients on any additional services that might be needed throughout the year.

Pests, such as wireworms and cutworms, as well as weeds such as poison ivy and ragweed, should also be managed and removed by your landscape contractor.

    This is for Kevin The Gardener Ottawa West. Kevin and his team at The Gardener are the most Professional Service contractors I’ve ever had. They do both our snow removal, and our yard work. I have even received a text message on one or two of the rare days when due to weather they would not be at my house on Thursday they will be on Friday. Who does that! I will continue using the The Gardener as long as I need their services.
