When you’re looking to hire a landscaper it’s important to find someone not only capable of executing your vision. But also someone that has a proven track record, high standard of work and most importantly- that you can trust.
BALI is a directory of landscapers and designers that have gone through an extensive background check. All members are signed up to the Code of Conduct pledging to carry out their business to the very highest industry standards. There are various stages a potential member has to go through and once/if approved you’re required to meet BALI standards throughout your membership duration. That’s why, when you see the contractors on the BALI website or the ‘registered’ BALI logo, you know they’ve already been assessed and approved.
BALI operate on an ethos to support and inspire landscapers, garden designers and suppliers to lead an environmentally, ethically and commercially sustainable landscaping industry.
To be considered:
- Firstly, you have to been trading for at least two years in order to be considered for a BALI membership.
- You have to show proof of public liability insurance and company turnover.
- Have a health & safety policy in place with companies with 5 employees or more.
- After you’ve submit all relevant paperwork including, several referees and two trade references for an internal vetting process; each referee and trade reference will be contacted by BALI.
After you passed the internal process, then the external vetting process takes place. This involves a vetting officer performing site visits and checking internal processes. This is the final stage and if successful, you’re offered a membership.
Confidence for You Both
BALI offers a ‘dispute resolution service’ which hopefully you’ll never need. But it gives you the client and the BALI member the peace of mind, that in the unlikely event you can’t resolve a difference. Not only will your issue be heard but with BALI’s guidance, it’ll be resolved.
We’ve been vetted by BALI and are in our 2nd year of membership with them. By choosing a BALI professional (like ourselves) you can have the confidence knowing ethically sourced materials, great customer service, value for money and a company operating with honesty and integrity – is what’s on offer.
