Hiring a Landscaper in Marana Arizona

Marana AZ landscaping contractorsSo your yard is not looking so nice and you are in need of an affordable landscaping service in Marana AZ but don’t know how to find one.  And since you take great pride in your home, you want to make sure you hire the right contractor.  Choosing the right landscaper can not only result in a much more attractive lawn and garden, but can also add enjoyment to your summer outdoor activities.  And if you should be in the market to sell your house, any realtor will tell you that a successful sale is all about curb appeal.  The range of services that you have at your disposal can be as basic as having your lawn cut once a week to having a landscape designer or architect transform your yard to suit your own sense of style.  Perhaps your trees need trimming and your shrubs need pruning?  And in the winter, most landscaping companies offer snow removal services as well.  Whatever your needs, choosing from among the various local landscaping companies can take some time and research on your part.  After all, if you ultimately are not happy with the results, it’s not like you can return your yard for a refund.  But there is an easy way to find highly skilled and reputable landscaping contractors in your area.  We’ll talk more about that later.  First, let’s discuss how to perform your due diligence when hiring a local contractor.

Not Just Lawn Mowing

  • Lawn mowing and maintenance
  • Weed elimination and control
  • Tree trimming and removal
  • Bush and shrub trimming and pruning
  • Sprinkler installation and repair
  • Sod installation and grass seeding
  • Tree, plant, bush and shrub planting
  • Water features installation and maintenance
  • Snow and leaf removal

Some Marana AZ companies may offer additional services, such as installing outdoor lighting or brick patios and retaining walls.  When making your inquiries, you will want to confirm that their main focus is either residential or commercial landscaping, depending on your needs.  Also, if you have a unique project, such as a water feature, make sure that the landscaper has extensive experience installing them.  Finally, you may want to inquire about seasonal contracts for your annual lawn care needs as well as fall leaf and winter snow removal.

How to Choose a Local Landscaping Contractor

The first thing that you should keep in mind is that you need to do your due diligence to protect yourself.  Yes, there are City, County and State laws in place requiring minimum standards for licensed contractors.  Although all contractors must follow the regulations in place, not all do.  And even the most stringent laws will not protect you from poor workmanship, delays or unfinished projects.  At least they won’t until after the fact when you are looking for restitution, which you may or may not receive.  So it is important that you take the following steps to not only protect yourself but ensure that you are hiring a reliable Marana AZ landscaping expert to maintain your lawn, garden or shrubberies.

  • Get Referrals.  Soliciting referrals from satisfied customers is a good way to find a reputable and professional Marana AZ landscaping contractor. Friends, neighbors and family are always good resources to start with. Another option that is becoming more and more popular is obtaining quotes from services that pre-screen local contractors.  They ensure that the contractors are licensed and certified professionals for your protection.  You can obtain free quotes from local landscapers in your area by requesting a quote from the recommended service on this website.
  • Be sure to verify Licenses and Credentials.  It is a good idea to do some preliminary research into the background of the Marana AZ contractors you are considering.  Confirm that they hold all of the licenses required in Arizona or your City or Local Municipality.  Check with the Better Business Bureau for any complaints as well as the Arizona Attorney General. Go online and check local reviews and visit their website.  Find out if they hold any designations from professional organizations. All of these credentials and citations will give you an insight into not only their professionalism but their standing in your community.
  • Meet with the Contractors.  Once you have narrowed down the list to two or three candidates have them come to your home to see the job first hand. Make sure that all bids are based on the same specifications and cover all of your job requirements.  If their bid is unusually high or even low, ask them why.  Be sure to ask all pertinent questions, such as how long will the job take, or if they anticipate there will be any problems or delays.  Be wary if the Marana AZ landscaping contractor doesn’t ask you many questions about your requirements or concerns.
  • Ask for and check References.  Before making the final selection, ask for and check at least 3 Marana AZ area references.  Ask each previous customer if the job was completed to their utmost satisfaction.  Ask if the job was completed on time and billed as quoted.  Was there anything that the customer was not 100% satisfied with?  Was there anything that they wish had been done differently?  And finally, would they use the contractor again or recommend their service to their friends and family?
  • And finally, get everything In Writing.  After making your final selection, be sure to review all of the documents that your Marana AZ landscaping contractor has prepared for you.  Ask for certificates of insurance for the Workers Compensation as well as the Liability Insurance.  Be sure to contact the insurance company to verify that the policies are both current.  Verify that they will obtain a Building Permit if required for installation projects.  Make sure that all services, materials and costs are included in detail in the final proposal.  Also make sure that the deposit and payment schedule is specified so each party knows what is expected.  Start and completion dates, dispute resolution, and warranties all should be covered in the final contract.

A Bit More About Marana Arizona

Marana, Arizona

Marana is a town in Pima County, Arizona, located northwest of Tucson, with a small portion in Pinal County.[4][5] According to the 2010 census, the population of the town is 34,961. Marana was the fourth fastest-growing place among all cities and towns in Arizona of any size from 1990 to 2000.[citation needed]

According to historian David Leighton, the first member of the Anway family in the Tucson area was Charles B. Anway, who arrived as a result of contracting tuberculosis. In 1919, brother William and his two children Louis and Ila arrived in town but they decided to settle in an area northwest of Tucson called Postvale, Arizona. In 1920, William who had been widowed for many years married Orpha Ralston, who was a member for many years in the Postvale Co-operative Women's Club. This club was involved in getting the local post office renamed from Postvale to the area's first known name Marana and in time the town name became Marana.[7]

The southern portion of Marana has grown considerably since the early 1990s with the addition of businesses and some housing, much of it due to annexation of existing unincorporated areas. In 1992, the Marana Town Council voted to annex an area of unincorporated Pima County that was located to the southeast of the town limits. The area selected was a narrow corridor of land that snaked its way south along Interstate 10, then to the east along Ina Road, and then south along Thornydale Road. These areas were mainly high density commercial businesses and shopping centers, including large retailers such as Super KMart (now closed), Costco Wholesale, Target, and Home Depot. The areas were selected by Marana to be annexed, by their own admission, for their sales tax revenue.[8][9] The large residential areas behind these commercial areas were not annexed.[10][11] As a result, the city of Tucson filed a lawsuit in the Superior Court of the State of Arizona in and for the County of Pima (City of Tucson v Town of Marana) claiming that Marana illegally annexed the unincorporated areas in violation of existing state laws. However, on April 4, 1994, Judge Lina Rodriguez ruled in favor of Marana, allowing the annexation to stand.[12] Following this suit, the Arizona State annexation laws were changed, forbidding municipalities from annexing small strips of land without taking large surrounding parcels as well. A "strip annexation" is no longer allowed under Arizona law.[13]

According to the United States Census Bureau, the town has a total area of 121.4 square miles (313.6 km²), of which, 120.7 square miles (312.3 km²) of it is land and 0.7 square miles (1.9 km²) of it (1.22%) is water.
