West Vancouver rental properties have the harried decision of hiring a gardener or letting the tenant take care of the gardens themselves. Many people love gardening and have the best intentions to keep the property looking fabulous but it can become a full time job. After all, there are only 24 hours in a day and gardening, especially in the spring and summer months can take many, many hours in a week. Vancouver Property Managers always strongly suggest to home owners they should hire a landscaper as part of the lease agreement to ensure their moss green lawns and gardens stay that way. Hiring a good landscaper takes research and dedication. Start by referrals, because most people will be honest about someone who does a good job. Right along with referrals of course are reference checks to make sure you are hiring a reliable, trustworthy company so there will be no surprises. Always ask for an honest quote to make certain you and your landscaper are on the same page where money is concerned. Check out your landscapers work on other homes and ask questions about everything. Be part of the decisions and keep a happy relationship between you and your gardener. Looking for rental properties in West Vancouver is all about location and lush green gardens. I definitely do not have a green thumb but I can sure appreciate a well manicured lawn.
