Living in the same city as the Royal Botanical Gardens in Ontario does put a little pressure on anyone planning to have their property landscaped. Hence, this isn’t a job for the do-it-yourself part-time gardener in you (or even your brother-in-law). In an article for AngiesList.com dated August 20, 2009, writer Jo Ellen Meyers Sharp points out some ways to select from among the most qualified Hamilton landscaping companies.
The first, quite simply, is to ask around. Whether through reputation or first-hand experience, your neighbors are bound to have someone to recommend. If it’s possible to view the landscaper’s previous work, this would greatly aid the decision-making process.
The second step is to find out if the landscaper is legally registered and allowed to do business in the area. They should be prepared to present any licences or permits issued to them as proof of their experience.
