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 Locust Valley, 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 Locust Valley, 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 Locust Valley, 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 Locust Valley, NY
Locust Valley is a hamlet and census-designated place (CDP) located in the Town of Oyster Bay in Nassau County, on the North Shore of Long Island, in New York, United States. The population was 3,406 at the 2010 census.
The rolling hills of the North Shore of Long Island were laid down as terminal moraines by the receding glaciers of the last ice age roughly 10,000 years ago. The Algonquian tribe that settled the area, spanning from Flushing to Setauket, called the area ‘hilly ground’ or Matinecock and as a result the Algonquian Indians who settled there became known as the Matinecock Indians.
In 1667, Captain John Underhill negotiated with the Matinecock Indians to purchase land for a settlement that he and his fellow colonists would call Buckram. The town name lasted for nearly 200 years, until in 1856 the name was changed to Locust Valley based on the number of locust trees located in the area.
On April 19, 1869, the Long Island Rail Road opened the extension of the Glen Cove line, via a single track to Locust Valley, making it the terminus of the line until the railroad was extended to its current terminus in Oyster Bay in 1889.
