Throughout the construction process, make sure you are available and on-site regularly to chat with your tradesperson about their scheduled work. The relationship between a client and a tradesperson can often become tense, and communication is the key to keeping it healthy. Talk through the expected project tasks daily with your tradesperson to ensure you keep a realistic expectation of progress.
Plus, if you’re on-site daily, stepping though the works, issues, mistakes or design changes will be flagged early ensuring the job keeps on track without too much fuss or financial penalty. Remember, changes from the contractually agreed work may incur variance costs.
So if you’ve got grand plans around your house or you’ve bitten off more than you can chew, maybe it’s time to get in the pro’s. There is plenty of great resources around the web so please checkout both QBCC and Landscape QLD before you start your project to get all the advice you’ll need.
The team at Centenary Landscaping Supplies will willingly recommend local, reputable tradespeople who can provide you with quotes on your next project. But please remember, Centenary Landscaping Supplies has no affiliation with any of those recommended tradespeople. With careful planning and due diligence using the steps above, you’ll be sure to create a fantastic outdoor space for you, your family and friends!
