What Every Gardener Needs Before Every Project

May 1, 2019, 1:19 PM

Hiring a professional? Make sure they're protected if the planting doesn't pan out.

Whether you’re putting in acres of corn or planting a few flowers on your windowsill, you know it’s time to get plants ready to grow. A big project calls for a professional, and a landscape gardener’s expertise can take your yard from a few attractive plants to a beautiful, functional outdoor area.

Backyard Garden

A landscape gardener designs an outdoor space, plants flowers, lays mulch on garden beds, and more. It doesn’t have to be plants, either: outdoor living can include fire pits, walkways, and water features, too. No matter what the day’s project is, a landscape gardener will be working outdoors with a crew and has to carry tools and supplies with them every time they’re on the job. A landscape gardener also needs quality Hastings Mutual insurance coverage to make sure the business and its workers are protected.

  • Selected Contractors: Our policy includes coverage for equipment and your tools. It’s meant to protect you and your business from before you provide a quote to after you’ve raked, shoveled, and improved your client’s property.
  • We offer two versions of this coverage, depending on your company’s number of full-time employees, annual gross receipts, and the percentage of your work that’s sub-contracted to other workers.
  • Commercial Auto: While Hastings Mutual offers coverage for your personal vehicle, our commercial auto coverage is what you’re looking for when you need insurance on a truck or other work vehicle.
  • Workers’ Compensation: Your employees work hard and need protection if they’re hurt on the job. Workers’ compensation policies are often required by law — your agent will know about what’s available from Hastings Mutual, and what’s vital for your business.
