In my opinion, referrals are the best way to find a professional landscape service provider, why? Let’s assume that you hire a gardener today and he or she does a great job, if someone asks you who did that job you will be more willing to share, right?
Thanks to the internet it has now become easier to find professionals. Take Facebook for example, if you run a gardening business getting friends or followers can be difficult, however, if you provide excellent services and people are saying nice things about you. Finding followers or customers becomes easier.
That’s because you have proven yourself to be reliable or trustworthy. If let’s say 500 customers trust and follow you on social media it means that you must be doing something right. In simple terms what I am telling you is the first place you should look when hunting for professional landscape services is on social media.
How are these people any different from anybody else in this field?
That is the first question all consumers ask when searching for a service. That’s because as a consumer what you really want is value for money. The easiest way to find a service or professional who offers you value for money is to use social media sites like Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. What you have to do is search for the service you are looking for by typing a phrase e.g. “landscape service” into a dialogue box and hit “search”. From there you will be taken to a list of service providers in your area. Look at what other customers are saying. It is a bad sign if most of the comments or reviews are bad. To avoid getting scammed you should Google the service along with “scam” if you get hits to avoid hiring that “professional”.
Look at how much effort they put into convincing you to buy their service, look at evidence of their previous work or simply drive around until you find a garden you like and ask the owner “who did the job?”
Cutting down a tree, landscaping or gardening doesn’t necessarily require you to have a college degree. What you need is someone with experience; a true professional is defined by a number of things including:
Knowledge is worthless if you keep it to yourself, a true professional is one who tells you how to solve a problem and how to keep it from happening again. Let’s assume that you hire someone to prune a tree in your backyard, he or she could do the job and leave it there. On the other hand, a professional will tell you what you can do to keep the problem from reoccurring or what might cause you problems in the future.
