Questions you should ask a Landscape Designer

  • Will they be carrying out the work themselves? If not, what experience does the person have and are they covered by insurance?
  • Can they show you examples of previous work?
  • Do you have references I can follow up?
  • Do they employ or consult specialists? (For example, horticulturalists to know which plants would work best in the garden.)
  • If garden design is being carried out, can they give you a scaled drawing/design of what the garden will look like when it is finished?
  • Will they give a guarantee/warranty for the work and how long does it last?
