While searching for the right company can be a lot of work, it’s worth it so that you ultimately end up with the best service. 

The last thing that you want is to end up back at square one looking for a landscaper because your original choice didn’t work out.

That’s why we’ve actually begun some of the research for you and rounded up a list of some of the South Riding, VA landscaping companies that you might want to consider.

Like some of these other companies, we are locally owned and operated and feel a deep sense of commitment to our community. We are a full-service landscape maintenance and design/build company.

Customized South Riding, VA Landscaping 

At Rock Water Farm, we take a highly customized approach to landscape maintenance. While a lot of companies offer packaged maintenance programs, when we prepare a proposal, all of our services are offered as a la carte options. That’s because we don’t want to just push services on you. We prefer to educate our clients, having them ask questions about what each service is and why they might need it. We always want our clients to understand what we’re doing (and what we’re not doing) on their property. Working together, we will find the best program for you with the services you need most.

Building Ongoing Relationships

While we perform similar maintenance services as some of these other companies, one area where we tend to stand out is in our relationships with our customers. We are not a “mow, blow, and go” type of company. Building ongoing relationships is a top priority for us. We don’t want to just come to your house, perform a service, and leave. We want to get to know you and do what it takes to meet your needs.

Exuding Professionalism

We also take professionalism quite seriously. We keep our vehicles and our equipment in top condition as we know they are a reflection of our company. Our crews know that we hold them to a high standard and they don’t disappoint when it comes to meeting that standard. They wear uniforms and always have a professional attitude.

But we do also offer design/build services should those needs arise, now or in the future.

Digging Deeper into South Riding, VA Landscaping Research

As you narrow your options you should spend time on the websites of any company that you might be considering and get to know them a little more. It always helps to spend time on the “About Us” page any time that you are visiting a potential company’s website as this is a great way to get to know their story.

You can also check to see if the companies you’re considering offer free client resources such as a blog in which they post helpful articles or even guides or tipsheets that provide added support. These types of resources demonstrate that a company is truly committed to helping their clients.

Exploring Reviews

In addition, you can also take a look at third-party review sites, such as Google Reviews, to see how past and present clients rate these companies. These ratings are performed on a 5-star scale with the opportunity for clients to also leave comments about the company they’re rating.

Ideally, you want to narrow your options to companies with 4.5 stars or higher, if you’re truly looking for the “best of the best.” Keep in mind that it becomes harder to maintain a higher rating with more reviewers. Therefore, both stars and the number of reviews matter.

Let’s take a look at the reviews for these 4 companies we’re comparing.
