How to Choose a Licensed Professional Landscape Design Contracting Business
Most landscaping design projects are completed without difficulties and people are satisfied with the finished project. Some projects involve minor disputes over workmanship and contract issues which are due mostly to communication errors. However, a few projects occur where major problems arise and the Oregon Landscape Contractors Board (LCB) has learned many of these problems can be avoided if the following steps are taken prior to having the work done:
Develop a list of potential landscape construction businesses.
Ask friends, neighbors, relatives and co-workers who they have used and would recommend from their experience. Ask the question: “would you use this landscape contracting business again?
Make sure the business is licensed with the Landscape Contractors Board
Licensing mans the business has a surety bond (min. $3000.00), general liability insurance (min. $100,000.00) and has at least one (1) licensed individual landscape construction professional who is on staff who to directly supervise all unlicensed employees working on the project. This individual has passed a comprehensive examination and has experience in the landscape industry for at least two years.
Call the Landscape Contractors Board: (503)378-5909 or check on our web site: www.lcb.state.or.us and click on “License Search” to see if the business is licensed. If the landscape contracting business is licensed, then you can get help in resolving disputes and have access to a bond for negligent work or breach of contract through the LCB.
