What Does a Landscape Contractor Do?


Landscape contractors execute lawn, garden and hardscaping plans that have been drawn up by a landscape architect or designer. They may also provide design services on their own. After the landscape has been installed, your landscape contractor can make adjustments, maintain plantings, take care of weeds and pests, and perform other tasks to keep the scheme looking its best. A Illinois landscape contractor should have detailed knowledge of River Forest, IL weather and climate trends and conditions, and can choose plants and materials that are well suited to the area. Contractors also handle many of the same general duties as builders, including arranging for construction permits, hiring subcontractors and making sure that landscape designs comply with Illinois building codes.

Questions to ask a prospective landscape contractor:


  • How long have you been in the business?
  • How many projects like mine have you completed?
  • Who will be working on the project?
  • Are the workers employees or subcontractors?
  • Can you provide me with references?
  • May I see a current jobsite?
  • Are you and your employees licensed and insured?
  • What license(s) do you have?
  • What other training and affiliations do you have?
  • How do you charge, and what does that include?
  • Can you provide me a written estimate?
  • What do your services include?
  • When can this job get done?
  • What happens when cost exceeds the budget? What about changes to materials or labor pricing?
  • What will I need to provide?
  • Are there any important considerations or concerns you foresee with this project?
