What is Landscaping Insurance?

Canadian landscapers embrace the unique challenge of providing exceptional outdoor design and maintenance work throughout all four seasons. The variety of exterior services you offer each presents a different level of risk for accidents, damages, or injuries.

Landscaping Insurance is a policy package designed for landscape contractors that provides financial coverage for the common risks associated with owning a landscaping business, such as slip-and-fall injuries and third-party property damage.


What kind of insurance does a landscaping company need?

As landscaping requires strenuous physical labor, it is important to have insurance coverage specifically designed for the risks you encounter and the equipment you own.

A comprehensive landscaper’s insurance package will typically include the following:

  • Commercial General Liability Insurance: covers for costs associated with common landscaping liability risks, such as third-party injuries or property damage.
  • Tools and Equipment Insurance: covers the cost to repair or replace your tools and equipment due to damage from work accidents (includes vandalism) or loss (includes theft).
    • Business property valued under $1,500 is classified as tools, and anything over is considered equipment.
  • Pollution Liability Insurancecovers third-party bodily injury, property damage and environmental damage due to both gradual and sudden pollution events that occur on a covered job site.
  • Commercial Auto Insurance: provides financial coverage for any business-owned vehicles along with employees who drive it from accidents, damages, and theft.
  • Commercial Property Insurance: covers for physical loss or damage to your property (rented or owned) and its physical contents due to an external disaster, such as a fire, theft, or vandalism

Who needs Landscaping Insurance?

Regardless of the landscape services provided (residential or commercial), there will still be risks of slip-and-fall injuries and property damage, especially in locations prone to harsher weather elements.
