Coverage Options - General Liability

What Does General Liability Insurance Cover?

General liability insurance typically covers bodily injury or property damage caused by your landscaping and lawn care services. This can include damage caused by falling trees or branches, damage caused by landscaping equipment or vehicles, and injuries caused by slips, trips, or falls on job sites.

In addition to bodily injury and property damage, general liability insurance can also cover other types of damages, such as advertising injury and personal injury. This coverage can protect your business from financial loss if you are sued by a third party for these types of damages.

Why do Landscapers Need General Liability Insurance?

Landscaping and lawn care services involve a variety of potential risks, including the use of heavy machinery, the use of chemicals and pesticides, and the risk of accidents or injuries on job sites. General liability insurance can help protect your business from financial loss if you are held liable for any of these risks.

Other Coverage Options 

Property Insurance
Property insurance covers damage to your business property, such as your office, tools, and equipment. This type of insurance can also cover the cost of repairs or replacement of your property in the event of fire, theft, or other covered perils.

Inland Marine
Inland marine insurance covers your equipment and tools while they are being transported to and from job sites. This coverage can protect you from financial loss if your equipment is lost, stolen, or damaged during transportation.

Commercial Auto Insurance
Commercial auto insurance covers the vehicles used in your landscaping business, including trucks, trailers, and other vehicles. This coverage can protect you from financial loss if your vehicle is involved in an accident or if it is damaged due to theft or vandalism.

Workers' Compensation Insurance
Workers' compensation insurance covers your employees if they are injured on the job. This coverage can pay for medical expenses, lost wages, and other costs associated with a work-related injury.

Performance and Bid Bonds
Performance and bid bonds are types of surety bonds that are commonly required for landscaping contractors bidding on government contracts or large commercial projects. A bid bond guarantees that you will enter into a contract if you are awarded the job, while a performance bond guarantees that you will complete the work according to the terms of the contract. These bonds provide financial protection to the government and commercial projects and ensure that you will fulfill your obligations under the contract.
