Steve Hansen, owner of Hansen Landscape Contractor
Q: Do you work on small projects?
A: "Yes. We don’t have a minimum project size. We’re happy to do something as straightforward as installing a new lawn, sprinkler system or tree."
Q: Do you use subcontractors?
A: "Ninety percent of our work is done by our own employees. We do subcontract for certain specialty tasks like concrete work, but all our subcontractors are licensed, bonded and insured. We’ve worked with them for years, so we know they’ll provide our customers with high-quality products and services."
Q: Do you provide landscaping plans that are required by homeowners’ associations (HOAs)?
A: "Yes. We’ve worked with many different HOAs over the years, and providing plans for their approval is a standard part of our job."
Q: How long does it take you to install a landscape?
A: "That varies with the scope of the job, but most of our landscape installation projects take between three and eight weeks to complete."
Q: Do you offer free estimates?
A: "Yes. We’re happy to educate our customers about project costs so they can establish realistic budgets. We do, however, have to charge for the design work itself."
Q: Do you provide maintenance and after-care for your projects?
A: "Yes. We have a separate division called My Gardener that provides routine gardening and maintenance services."
