The 2020 IBIS World Market Report revealed 504,727 active companies with their hands in the landscape industry. With so many options and an amazing pool of talent in the field, you may wonder what makes YardScapes unique and worthy of your business.
1. We Have a Mission and We Take it Seriously
“To continue to nurture the growing relationships with our clients and community through professionalism, attention to detail, hard work, and continued education.”
2. We Have Values and We Conduct Ourselves in Accordance with Them
A work in progress for almost 30 years, our Values Systemis introduced to every new hire, regardless of position, re-iterated annually at Spring Kickoff, and reinforced as needed. At the core of these guidelines are client focus, respect, and integrity.
4. We Love the Land and Community in Which We Are Charged To Improve and Maintain
Wearing the green polo isn’t just about showing up, whacking a few weeds, and collecting a paycheck. From our most junior technicians, to our president himself, we love and respect this land. Our team embrace the outdoor lifestyle and can be found enjoying various activities during their off time. This community has been great to us and we like to give back. As such, the spirit of volunteerism prevails, and each year we donate hundreds of hours of our own time, equipment, and sweat to improve the lives of citizens by maintaining existing public and non-profit properties at zero cost during our Day of Service. It’s not always about preforming a pro-bono fall cleanup for a worthy cause. While we take this responsibility seriously, we also have fun along the way. To date, our largest annual event, the Quad-Am Golf Classic,has raised over $96,000 and generated countless laughs along the fairways.
7. The Bottom Line: Respect
Respect for each other, our equipment, our clients, and the land for which we are charged to improve or maintain.
3. We are Professionals and Dress the Part
We aim to change the perception of the industry as a whole and feel that the change should start with us. Despite the outdoor nature of most of our work, we strive to maintain a neat appearance. This means we show up to your property looking professional! Our uniforms and vehicles are tidy and clean, our equipment is well-maintained, our skills are unparalleled, and our attitudes are always positive.
5. We are Constantly Learning! YardScapes Travels Across the United States Several Times a Year
We go far beyond on the job training and take it a step above by attending national landscaping seminars and events, including the NALP “Landscapes”. These events cover topics that many never considered such as industry trends and climate considerations as they pertain to our practices.
6. “It’s Not My Job” is Never Said Here. “Si se puede” (It Can Be Done) is More Like It
We are a unified team from the top down and we will do what it takes to help the cause. If a mow crew technician knows how to weld and George is deep into tearing apart an engine for rebuild, s/he fixes that broken trailer ramp. If the weather changes unexpectedly and a crew needs assistance finishing before the threat of lightning approaches, Operations Manager Greg is there, shovel in hand, making sure what has been promised gets delivered on time.
