What They Can Build
First, you want to determine what the company can build. After all, you don’t want to go through all the steps before realizing that the company you want to go with can’t do more than put a garden hose in a hole in the ground.
Not every company specializes in water features and can’t create a waterfall design in your Jericho, NY backyard. Before you start considering any other tips in this guide, ensure the business can create what you want.
Check Their Reviews
Next, you should check the reviews. You’ve probably heard that you should take reviews with a grain of salt, and that’s still true. Some people may leave bad reviews out of bitterness, letting their emotions cloud their judgment. Also, some people may leave glowing reviews for mediocre work because they liked one aspect of the company.
When looking at reviews for a Nassau County company, consider both positive and negative reviews. Look for similarities between reviews.
Did multiple people compliment the company’s customer service? Did many say the work wasn’t worth the cost? These may be good indicators of how your experience will go.
Ask for Referrals
Do you know anyone who had a garden designed by a landscaping company in Jericho, NY? If so, ask who they went with and if they would recommend them.
You can trust the friends and family in your life, so they’ll give you the best referrals. Did they love the waterfall design the company made?
Did they dislike the customer service? Are they happy with the results? Listen to them talk about their experience and take their referral into consideration.
How many experiences Do They Have?
You also want to look into the company and see how much experience they have. While experience doesn’t always mean they’ll do a good job, it’s an important factor to consider.
Is the company brand-new? If so, the company may not have the right equipment needed to do the job. For example, they may not have the best flexible liners for your pond.
If the company doesn’t have a lot of reviews, you may find that they don’t have a lot of experience either. Before choosing a company with little experience, consider if you’re willing to take the risk. You may not know what to expect if they don’t have a lot of examples of their work to show off.
Are They Certified?
You also want to know if the Jericho, NY company is certified. The last thing you want is someone illegally working on your backyard waterfalls. Before hiring them, make sure they have all the proper certifications.
Look at Their Portfolio
Finally, you should look at the Nassau County company’s portfolio. Do they have many examples of a home waterfall they’ve done? How do the pictures look? Do they show broken pond liners or cracks at the sides of the pond?
Or does the shallow water look beautiful in the small pond? You can see the water moving even though a still photo, and you can imagine the sound of the waterfall running. If that’s what the photos look like in the company’s portfolio, call them immediately.
It takes a lot of work to build a pond or backyard waterfalls, and you can’t just choose anybody. Call Scott Anderson Design at 516-729-5668 today. Whether you want us to create a pond or water feature, we guarantee that you’ll love the result. Then, all you have to do is fill the pond, sit back, and relax.
Some information about Jericho, NY
Jericho is a hamlet and census-designated place (CDP) in Nassau County, New York, United States, on the North Shore of Long Island, approximately 29 miles (47 km) east of Midtown Manhattan. Its population was 13,567 as of the U.S. 2010 Census.
Located mainly in the Town of Oyster Bay with a small part in the Town of Hempstead, Jericho was part of the Robert Williams Plantation in 1648. The English families who settled in Jericho were, or soon became, Quakers, members of the Society of Friends. Many fled from persecution in England and in the New England Colonies. They sought a peaceful existence as farmers. The name of the area was changed in 1692 from Lusum to Jericho after the town in the Middle East near the Jordan River mentioned in the Bible as part of the Promised Land.
Elias Hicks married Jemima Seaman in 1771 and moved to her family’s farm in Jericho, where he soon became a noted preacher of Quaker doctrine. All the Quakers suffered during the British occupation of Long Island in the Revolutionary War. The practice was to quarter troops in homes of residents, who had to provide room and board for them. The Quakers continued to protest the entire concept of war itself. After the war, peace returned to Jericho, and the neat farms and businesses began to prosper. A Friends Meeting house was built in 1788 in Jericho that is still used in the 21st century. A Quaker school was built in 1793, the Charity Society of Jericho and Westbury in 1794, and slavery was abolished in 1817, with Hicks’ help.
Platt Rogers Spencer’s Log Seminary in Jericho, New York
A post office was established in 1802, a cider mill in the mid-19th century, the first public elementary school in 1905, known as the Cedar Swamp School. Improvements to infrastructure were made with the founding of the Jericho Water District in 1923. As the population increased, a new elementary school was built in 1953 (Robert Seaman School), and a Volunteer Fire Department established in 1938. The population kept increasing until the last elementary schools in Jericho were built, the George A. Jackson Elementary School in 1957, the now closed Robert Williams School in 1961 and the Cantiague School in 1963. When the Village of Muttontown was incorporated, the cider mill was within the village limits. Because most Gold Coast villages wanted to remain business free areas, many do not have their own post offices or ZIP Codes. Therefore, Jericho Post Office which serves this area of Muttontown is displayed as the official USPS mailing address and leads to the misconception that the cider mill is in Jericho.
