Questions and answers
- What brands or products do you work with?
I use a 27 HP Bad Boy Zero Turn mower and Shindawa weedeaters. That's as much branding I get. Unless specified, I try to get the best looking stuff for the least amount of money.
- What areas of your trade do you specialize in?
Creative landscaping, repurposing material and make it look beautiful on a budget. Not everyone can afford the gardens and landscapes they see on TV. You have to be creative with what they can afford and what they already have, so it looks great and professionally done with the money and material they already have. I think if you specialize too much in this field you limit yourself. Just don't get overexcited and grab something too far out of your skills, work up to it. That's how I made my company grow.
- Tell us something customers may not know about you.
I sit around and think a lot about this business of mine. This is my dream and I don't want to do anything else. My sandbox got bigger and I still get to play in it.
- What types of jobs are the most common?
Never came across a common job. Everybody's yard is different so jobs with landscaping are unique jobs.
- How many projects do you average in a year?
We average 2 to 3 projects a year, we want more but the larger companies grab a lot of the big ones, so we do what we can to grab more.
- What services do you provide your customers after the work has finished?
I always check on the project for a couple of weeks, I buy plant and bushes from a nursery or other home improvement store for the warranty. If the plant dies within a year it's warrantied so we can replace it. Train the homeowner how to maintain the service provide so they will be able to save money, or I will set them up a maintenance schedule for us to take care of for a fee.
- What questions should a customer ask before hiring a professional in your trade?
Have you done this before? I have a budget, will you work with it? About how long will this take? If there are problems will you fix the problem promptly? It should be within 2-4 days. Remember, he does have a schedule too.
- What do you wish customers knew about your profession or trade?
Most will try to make it sound like rocket science to build a paver patio or sidewalk or planting bed, it's really not that hard. We just liked it so much we do it for a living, just remember this, it's just grass, dirt and stacking or building. Not rocket science.
- What would you recommend customers looking to save money?
Talk with their lawn maintenance provider, ask if they will work on a project that is ok with the budget they have. If they don't ask why, it's not a good enough answer. There are tons of people that provide the same service. Keep shopping.
- How did you get started?
I got started by taking care of my family's yard and landscaping and then a neighbor wanted something done, then their friends wanted something done and it grew pretty fast. So now I'm taking the next step and growing again, I'm nervous and excited, like stepping into the unknown and running with all you got to succeed.
- Tell us about the project or job that you are most proud of (in the last 12 months).
As we are small right now I would say George's yard is my pride and joy, we have put up wood panel fencing for him, we have laid a brick sidewalk, planted roses and now his yard looks awesome. We usually do 2 to 3 projects on a budget and he usually buys the material, but we make it look pretty.
- What information do you recommend to have readily available before looking for a professional in your trade?
How big the project is, your budge and your needs from this project, they may want to schedule this one day after another but if you can't be there let them know. Remember it's your yard, they should schedule the project as they can around you.
