The Best Landscape Companies in Austin TX Are the Ones Proven Safe To Hire 

There is no state license required of landscape contractors in Austin Texas and so no state standard for competency and reliability. Likewise, there is no legal requirement that companies for landscaping in Austin have workers' comp insurance or liability insurance and both are critical to you. If an employee of theirs were injured on your property and the landscape contractors don't have workers' comp, you will be held liable. Similarly if any accidental damage occurs to your property and the landscape company has no liability insurance, you will be on the hook for it.

This makes it all the more significant that all landscape companies and landscape designers in Austin TX who bear The Prime Buyer's Report—TOP 10 symbol have been cleared by our research staff as passing all the requirements for Prime Buyer's Report—TOP 10 status such as survey phone calls to previous customers to verify high satisfaction, good complaint record, verified worker's comp and liability insurance, only employees legal to work in the U.S., and more.

 

 

Questions to Ask Landscape Companies in Austin TX  

When interviewing landscape companies in Austin TX, ask these questions about their abilities, previous experience, and credentials before hiring:

• How long have they been doing landscaping in Austin? (Different geographic regions have unique weather and soil conditions that determine choices in plants, drainage, lawn sprinklers and irrigation systems. Plenty of experience specifically in Austin shows knowledge of these local conditions.)
 

• How many landscape projects have they completed similar to yours in terms of size and specific elements (water features, outdoor kitchen, lawn sprinkler installation, etc.) residential versus commercial, drought-tolerant plants, etc.?

• Can the landscape contractor or designer give you names and numbers of clients that you can call for references? (All landscape companies bearing the Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already had their client references called by our research staff so you don't have to.)

• Will they give you the cost estimate in writing, with full itemized detail, including the amounts of each material to be used, product brand names, and product numbers? (This is key because cheap landscape companies in Austin often only seem cheap by using low quality brands or less material that other companies).


• What are the manufacturer warranties on the material to be used?


• Do they provide a written guarantee for their labor, aside from manufacturer warranties, and for how long?

 • What is their policy regarding repair or replacement of plants that die after installation and for how long?

• Will Austin or your city require a permit for the project, and if so, will the landscape company get the permits as part of their cost estimate, or is it an extra cost, or do they leave getting that permit up to you?

• Can they vouch that all their employees are legal to work in the U.S.? (All landscape companies in Austin bearing The Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already signed an agreement to only hire documented workers.)


• Do they use only their own employees, or do they hire subcontractors? If so, what are the names of those companies so that you can research them too?

• Will they show you proof of active workers' compensation and liability insurance? (All landscape  companies bearing the Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already had proof of insurance verified by our research staff so you don't have to.)
