Everything You Need to Know to Hire a Great Landscaper for Your HOA

Outdoor landscaping in a Florida HOA

Most HOAs use the services of landscape experts to improve the look and ambiance of their HOA. Hiring the right person for the job is important, because you want your landscape to look great without paying way too much.

Here’s what you need to know about HOA landscaping companies so you can find the best one for your specific needs. Then, you can reach out to several in your area today, get quotes, and hire the best one for the job.

What Does an HOA Landscaping Company Do?

An HOA landscaper generally handles all of the landscaping needs for common areas in your HOA. For some HOAs, this will be a very limited scope because most of the land is privately owned. For others, it will be much more significant and the landscaping company will need to be committed to caring for all of the necessary property.

Some landscaping companies will design and perform upkeep on landscaping, while others only do the upkeep part. If you need a landscape designer for an area in your HOA, make this clear to companies when you initially speak to them.

What Does an HOA Landscaping Company NOT Do?

An HOA landscaper does not deal with landscaping individual properties within the HOA. Sometimes, these contractors also work for individuals, but these are separate contracts that must be negotiated and signed with the property’s owner, not with the HOA company.

In most communities, individuals are responsible for their own landscaping. They will need to ensure that it meets community standards and that they get any necessary permissions before they make changes.

How to Find a Great HOA Landscaper for Your Specific Needs

Whether you’re hiring an HOA landscaping company for the first time or replacing an old one with a new one, it’s important to find the right person for the job. You can start by asking other HOA boards in your area who they use and whether they’ve been happy with the service they’ve received, or run some online searches to find companies in your area.

Once you’ve found a company, look through reviews available for them. Keep in mind that some people only leave reviews when they are angry. If you want a balanced report on a company, you may need to call them and ask for referrals, too.

When you’ve narrowed the list of potential candidates, call them to request a quote. They should come out, inspect your landscape, note any specific needs you have, then design a quote for you. Get quotes from at least three companies so you can compare them before you choose who you want to work with.
