How many landscaping companies are in Central

    Central Oregon and choosing the right one should
    be on every consumer and business owners' mind

  • The yellow pages lists over 183 landscaping
    companies in the surrounding Bend, OR area. The
    US Census Bureau lists over 90,000 landscaping
    services nationwide so if we calculate the number
    of incorporated places nationwide 19,354 by
    90,000, we get 21 per city. So, how many
    landscaping companies are actually in Bend,
    Sisters, Redmond, La Pine, Prineville and Madras?
    21 companies times 6 cities are 126 so the yellow
    pages isnt too far off.

  • Now that we know there are between 126 and 183
    landscaping services in Central Oregon, how on
    Earth do we pick the right one for our personal
    or business needs? Here is a good list of
    questions to ask when choosing the right
    landscaping service
  •  
  • Are they bonded, insured and have their
    contractors license?
  •  
  • There is a board for landscaping contractors and
    they need a pesticide license including a
    certificate of insurance provided by their
    insurance company. These are great questions to
    ask and to look for on their vehicles.

  • Do they operate with a business plan?
  •  
  • Many landscaping maintenance companies are small.
    The smaller the company, the less they are
    actually operating under a business plan with a
    budget. This may not be that big of a deal to
    some, but for reliability and longevity, a smooth
    running operation is a must. If your landscaping
    company doesnt have an operating plan, how can
    they monitor and control growth to keep up with
    consistency and quality of your ecosystem?

  • What resources do they use to stay educated with?
  •  
  • Magazines, journals, website blogs, seminars,
    tradeshows and other education areas show the
    business owner is interested in maintaining their
    education on the subject. Managing an ecosystem
    isnt easy. Same with managing clientele and
    their landscaping needs. Not all clients leave
    the care to the expert. Many customers are
    educated in their landscape and will most
    definitely know if a landscaper doesnt know what
    they are doing.

  • One on one personalization
  •  
  • When looking for a landscaper in Bend, OR (for
    example), one must build a relationship with the
    landscaper. People skills should be a
    prerequisite when such a project is taken. The
    homeowner or business owner has an idea in mind
    and the landscaper should address those needs
    with listening skills and personalization skills.
    Being introvert isnt necessarily a bad thing,
    however, it doesnt help if you are the owner of
    your landscaping company. People skills are a
    must as it is a sales environment. One on one
    personalization comes with the job and the
    landscaper, if they have been in business for
    years, should know this already.

  • What are the rates
  • Cheapest doesnt necessarily mean the best
    service. In this area of business, you get what
    you pay for. Many homeowners and/or business
    owners are not interested in paying a lot for
    this type of service which leaves the industry
    hiring at lower wages. Consider hiring two
    landscapers, one that is cheap and the other more
    expensive. Monitor and watch the performance
    levels and integrity. This is a real good way to
    find out if your area has good service at a lower
    rate and if you can get by with it.

  • What does your gut tell you
  •  
  • Sometimes, you get a bad feeling about certain
    people. If your gut says no, perhaps that is a
    sign that you should pick another irrigation
    company in Redmond, OR or any other city you live
    in. You dont have to be psychic or religious to
    bas your feelings on a decision. Sometimes, your
    gut can give you an impression of the future
    whether good or bad.
