Finding The Best Landscaping Company Near You | How To Guide

Whether you are looking for a landscaping company in Hampshire, Dorset, Surrey or anywhere in the UK there are a few consistent checks and tips to help you find your ideal landscaper. We are here to guide you through the ways that you will find a reputable and professional landscaper. If you follow this advice you will be sure to steer clear of the rogue landscapers.

Association Of Professional Landscapers (APL) Website

One of the main organisations within the landscaping industry, the APL offer homeowners a place to find reputable, high quality installers. You can enter your local area, and the website will bring up landscaping companies that are APL Accredited Installers.

This means all the landscapers you find on the APL website are checked and vetted thoroughly every year by the association and offer high quality installations.

Please note, this is not like Checkatrade or any other platform where you pay for leads. To become part of the APL you must meet strict criteria and agree to yearly checking of workmanship, compliance to health & safety and CDM regulations as well as business practices.

Aura Landscapes is proud to be an APL Accredited Installer, partnering with this association for the last 8 years. Click here to visit the Association of Professional Landscapers website.

Through the APL you, the customer, have the peace of mind to know that all APL members are backed by TrustMark

What is TrustMark?

TrustMark is the Government Endorsed Quality Scheme covering work a consumer chooses to have carried out in or around their home. If a consumer chooses to use a TrustMark registered landscaper they know that they are dealing with a landscaper that has been thoroughly vetted to meet standards set and gives good customer service, technical competence and trading practices.
