Getting proper groundwork done can be a challenge if you are new to grounds maintenance – not only do you have to understand all that goes into it, you also have to find a company that can handle the job. Your first step should be to tour your grounds so that you can determine what needs to be done. It doesn’t have to be a complicated or technical affair – just walk around with a pad and paper and write down any sections of the ground that you think need improvement.
Next is to come up with a list of 4 or 5 groundworks companies that are near you. It is important that you choose companies that work in your vicinity because you can tour other grounds and gauge the quality of their work. Invite them to come over and walk around with your list, talking to them about the improvements you would like to see. Note their answers carefully – the kind of language that they use will tell you whether or not they know what they are talking about. You should also talk to them about the kind of equipment they have and whether they will use chemicals on your grounds. You should also talk about whether they will be available when they are needed and whether they are able to properly prepare your grounds for the winter.
You should bring up the question of costs. It is best to hire a company that is willing to work with you in the long term. They will get to understand and know your grounds well enough to make sure that they are always well maintained. A long term contract means that you can get yourself some pretty significant discounts.
