Hiring a Landscaper in Tucker Georgia

Tucker GA landscaping contractorsSo your yard is not looking so nice and you are in need of an affordable landscaping service in Tucker GA 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 Tucker GA 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 Tucker GA 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 Tucker GA 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 Tucker GA contractors you are considering.  Confirm that they hold all of the licenses required in Georgia or your City or Local Municipality.  Check with the Better Business Bureau for any complaints as well as the Georgia 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 Tucker GA 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 Tucker GA 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 Tucker GA 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 Tucker Georgia

Tucker, Georgia

Tucker is a city located in DeKalb County, Georgia, United States. It was originally settled in the 1820s, and later developed as a railroad community in 1892. According to the 2016 United States Census Bureau annual estimate of resident population, it has a population of 35,322.[5] In a November 2015 referendum, by a 3:1 margin (73.94%), voters approved incorporating Tucker into a city. In March 2016 Tucker residents elected the city’s first mayor and city council.[6][7][8][9]

The 1821 Georgia Land Lottery opened portions of state land for settlement between the Flint and Ocmulgee rivers, including present-day DeKalb County. The Muscogee (Creek) Nation ceded the land to the United States in January of that year, and drawings for lots measuring 202.5 acres (81.9 ha) each began in May in Milledgeville, the state capital until 1868. The land grant fee was $19.00.[10]

In 1821, the area that would become Tucker was in Militia District 572 in Henry County. The state created DeKalb County on December 9, 1822, and District 572 became DeKalb's 18th District, or the Brownings District, reportedly named for Andrew Browning.[11][12]

Among the thirty cemeteries within a 4-mile (6 km) radius of Main Street, approximately 30 graves belong to individuals born in the 18th century, four of whom are Revolutionary War soldiers. Twelve graves belong to Confederate soldiers.[13]
