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 Manhasset, 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 Manhasset, 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 Manhasset, 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 Manhasset, NY
Manhasset is a hamlet and census-designated place (CDP) in Nassau County, on the North Shore of Long Island, in New York, United States. The population was 8,080 at the 2010 census.
The Matinecock had a village on Manhasset Bay. These Native Americans called the area Sint Sink, meaning ‘place of small stones’. They made wampum from oyster shells. In 1623, the area was claimed by the Dutch West India Company and they began forcing English settlers to leave in 1640. A 1643 land purchase made it possible for English settlers to return to Cow Neck (the peninsula where present-day Port Washington, Manhasset, and surrounding villages are located.).
Manhasset Bay was previously known as Schout’s Bay (a schout being roughly the Dutch equivalent of a sheriff), Martin Garretson’s Bay (Martin Garretson was the Schout at one point), and later Cow Bay or Cow Harbor. Cow Neck was so called because it offered good grazing land. By 1659, there were over 300 cows and 5 mi (8 km) fence separating Cow Neck from the areas south of it. The settlers came to an agreement that each of them could have one cow on the neck for each section of fence the individual had constructed. The area was more formally divided among the settlers when the fence was removed in 1677. Manhasset took on the name Little Cow Neck, Port Washington was known as Upper Cow Neck.
During the American Revolution, Little Cow Neck suffered at the hands of the British. Many structures and properties, such as the 1719 Quaker Meeting House were burned, seized or damaged. The Town of North Hempstead separated from the Town of Hempstead in 1784 because the South, inhabited mainly by Church of England people, was loyal to the king. The Northern communities and villages, dominated by Yankee Congregationalists supported independence.
