Jon Stanton: Yes, there can be a lot of hidden issues and/or comports to your yard - whether it’s hardscaping elements for lawn care, or planting the proper plants in the right parts of the property based on sun and shade needs. Many have deer or other animal issues on their property.
This way, if they do have deer and we put plants in, we have a deer-proofing program that we recommend after the completion of the project, so those plants have the best shot to survive.
Jon Stanton: The bigger issue that we see is frequently people are looking for a specific thing. They saw it in a magazine, at a trade show, or at their neighbor's and they call for that specific thing. And then they chase the price.
There's a lot more that goes into these things that we do, whether it be addressing the foundation, proper topsoil usage, the quality of the topsoil, or a stone base that we're putting down. It could be hardscaping elements, and that prep work takes a great deal of time and sets that particular property project up for the future. But it's expensive to get it there. People don't realize that until it's too late, unfortunately. We have had cases where they have enough information from us to know that is the right thing to do but decided not to make that investment. And they would come back to us and say we should have hired you in the first place.
Our website features a comprehensive pricing guide, designed to provide prospective clients with a clear understanding of the investment levels associated with our various services, be it a lawn care program, a landscape maintenance program, or hardscaping. In the event of a consultation, we further tailor these costs to align with the specific needs of the client.
Contrary to common misconceptions, our approach isn't to overhaul everything at once. Instead, we believe in methodical progression, executing projects in stages or 'phases'. This allows us to develop the property gradually, keeping in line with the client's needs and budget. We place great emphasis on meticulous planning and open communication, as we believe these factors are integral to delivering exceptional landscaping services.
We've discovered that establishing a genuine connection with our clients paves the way for remarkable results. When clients feel comfortable and understood, we can collaborate to create something truly beautiful.
In an era where many businesses may overlook the significance of personal connections, we pride ourselves on our commitment to understanding our clients' desires and responding effectively. This dedication to connection, understanding, and responsiveness sets us apart in our industry.
One of the unique aspects of our business is the dual service offering of maintenance and custom design-build.
Often, people perceive landscape design as an extravagance beyond their financial reach. We're here to dispel that notion. Our services extend far beyond basic lawn care and landscape projects. In addition to providing snow removal (with pre-paid seasonal plans available) and lawn mowing, we also offer fall cleanups, pest control, and hardscape work. This goes well beyond the standard landscape maintenance services you might expect.
We strongly encourage you to engage in a conversation with our knowledgeable staff. They can provide valuable insights about your outdoor space and guide you on the best ways to maintain and enhance it. Our goal is to empower you with the knowledge to make informed decisions about your landscape, ensuring it remains a source of pride and enjoyment throughout the year.
