Rich Wigley: Finding the right team to suit your needs


Locating the correct contractors, licences required for certain works and a designer to collaborate with are all important aspects in construction. 

Licensing and Qualifications:

Make sure contractors have the necessary licences for tasks that are included in your landscape. Electrical, and some plumbing, work may need an industry specialist, so make sure they are licenced.

It’s also vital to check qualifications and business details. The last thing anyone wants is a dud. Ensure the team you are working with is professional, has qualified members and the business boasts a great track record.

Last, but not least, confirm they follow local regulations and building codes to avoid legal issues and costly delays. Approvals and certification are easy if planned and handled by a professional team.

Finding a Designer to Collaborate With:

Seek specialists who match your style and needs.

So, schedule consultations well in advance because good designers are busy. Arrange the meetings to discuss ideas, budget and timeline.

When you choose a designer, make certain they understands your vision and practical needs, as you’ll be working closely with them for the following months.

In other words, be sure you like them.

Trust in Construction Matters:

Seek recommendations, whether it’s getting referrals from friends, family or local groups.

Then foster trust by keeping your communication clear and transparent.

It’s crucial to set clear expectations, too. Define your needs, timeline and budget for mutual understanding to avoid any problems during construction.

Significantly, ensure there is a contract or written quotation to avoid any miscommunication.
