How do I hire the best landscaper in Boston?

Your first step to hiring one of the best landscapers in Boston is performing an online search. Compare potential Boston landscaping companies, and pay attention to the ratings and customer reviews. Look for customer-uploaded photos of work done by the landscapers so you can get an idea of their quality of work. 

You should also research the landscape professionals’ certifications and licenses. For example, Massachusetts regulates licenses for landscape architects, specifically. Ask the pros what licenses and certifications they’ve obtained, and double-check the information by going online.

Next, contact the landscapers you’ve selected to receive free estimates and compare quotes. When you’re contacting landscapers, give them information about your project.

For example, do you want to build an outdoor fireplace to sit around during a chilly Boston night? Do you want to install outdoor lighting? Or start a garden filled with native plants, like butterfly weed, mayflowers, goldenrod and more? Giving the landscapers details about your project means they can provide a more accurate cost estimate. 

In the end, choose a landscaper or landscaping company that has a positive reputation and fair pricing for their services.
