DENVER, CO — Now that spring has officially arrived, many Colorado homeowners are thinking about how they can improve their lawns and gardens. For some, it’s simply a matter of mowing and trimming. For others, now is the time to consider a large-scale adjustment to landscaping.
For those who lack a green thumb, a lawn care service or landscaper can help give you the yard of your dreams. However, it’s important to pick the right company. Hiring the wrong company could turn your dream landscape into a nightmare.
Better Business Bureau serving Denver/Boulder advises consumers to get clear, written expectations for the services the company will provide and agree on a fee before work starts.
Last year, BBB received over thousands of complaints against landscape contractors and lawn maintenance contractors. Many of the consumers were unhappy with the services provided and alleged the companies they hired did not perform the duties they agreed upon. Others complained about problems with advertising or billing. And some also express dissatisfaction with recurring contracts that they believe they did not authorize. To protect yourself from this dissatisfaction, it’s important to do your research before hiring a lawn care business.
