Recently Spokane Landscaping was nominated as one of the best landscaping companies in Spokane Washington. Being nominated is an awesome achievement because it lets everyone know that you are a company worth hiring. Not all landscapers will come out on top, in fact doing a quick Google search for local Spokane landscapers you will see that many have horrible reviews, while others have great reviews. We won’t point out names or business names, but a simple search will quickly tell you who is the best of the best and who you should avoid, if looking for a lawn care company.
Spokane Landscaping has been in business since 1997 which gives them veteran status. Growing a business over the years especially in tough economic times takes a lot of work. Work that should be recognized. Jesse, the owner of Spokane Landscaping currently employes 12 full time staff including one full time office administrator. “If the crew isn’t working a job then we are out actively looking for business, either by posting signs or talking to other local business owners”, says Jesse. “We found that most of our business is either repeat customers, they were referred to us from a current customer or they saw us working in their local neighborhood and called us from our phone number on the side of the truck”.
We spoke with Jesse about how he came out on top, here is a break down of some of his responses.
- To be one of the better landscaping companies in a city, you have to step up your game. You have to market yourself and make sure as many people know about you and can recognize you later. Its all about being in the front of their mind on a weekly basis. If you see a company working in your local area on a constant basis you are going to remember their name. So when you actually need their services they will be the first company you call, because they are the ones you actually remember.
- Referrals are and will always be the biggest boost to any business. It’s vital that any business owner manages their reputation as best as possible. Obviously if you did a bad job, then expect to get a bad rating, but as a business owner you can always try to make things better. Always be looking for those opportunities to over deliver. Most people will leave a bad review because they were over promised and under delivered, either on service and/or quality of work performed.
Its can be a challenge building a landscaping business in Spokane. Half of the year its extremely hot so most people want their sprinkler systems serviced or they are shopping for a new sprinkler system. If they don’t have a sprinkler system then most likely their grass is dead and won’t come back to life until late fall. By then we are starting to get snow so our season ends. That is why Spokane Landscaping will be expanding out to other ‘seasonal’ jobs such as snow plowing, de-icing, etc.
