How to Choose the Right Service Level for Your Commercial Landscape

How to Choose the Right Service Level for Your Commercial Landscape

Spring is here and it’s time to start thinking about your commercial landscape. A well-maintained landscape is important for the image and success of your business. Hiring a commercial landscaping contractor can help you achieve a beautiful and functional outdoor space, but choosing the right service level for your needs is important to ensure the success of your landscaping project.

Services to Consider

When choosing a commercial landscaping contractor, it’s important to consider the services you need for your property. Some common services include weekly mowing, beginning and end of season clean-ups, mulching and bed edging, regular weeding and bed maintenance, and shrub trimming twice per year.

Service Levels

There are two main types of service levels to choose from when working with a commercial landscaping contractor – an all-inclusive contract and a service-specific contract. An all-inclusive contract covers all the services you need for your landscape, from the beginning of the growing season to the end. A service-specific contract, on the other hand, only covers specific services that you require. For instance, one business may only need weekly mowing and a one time mulch install. A Scope of Work will clearly outline your specific needs

Scope of Work/RFP

A Scope of Work (SOW) or Request for Proposal (RFP) is a document that outlines the scope and expectations of a contract. When choosing a commercial landscaping contractor, it’s best practice to have and provide a Scope of Work or RFP to ensure that your service expectations are clear and outlined. This will help ensure that the performance of the work meets the business’ needs & expectations. For example, when it comes to weed maintenance, it’s important to specify whether you want the contractor to maintain the weeds or if this is a task that can be assigned to someone in-house. It is best practice not to assume a service will be performed unless specified in the RFP, and eventually, the contract.

In conclusion, choosing the right service level for your commercial landscape is essential for the success of your landscaping project. By considering the services and service levels available, and utilizing a Scope of Work/RFP, you can achieve your desired outcome and ensure a beautiful and functional outdoor space for your business.
