Landscape Maintenance in Newark, DE
In Newark, Delaware a small accounting firm who operates their business out of their newly constructed home called us looking for a dependable landscape maintenance company for their home office. When they initially called me, it was immediately noticeable by the tone in their voice, the sense of the urgency and concern they had in wanting to find a reliable landscape maintenance company right away.
We service Wilmington, Newark and Hockessin Delaware as well as Garnet Valley, West Chester, Chadds Ford and Kennett Square Pennsylvania and neighboring cities in DE, PA.
Tax season was already here and it was very busy for them. She told me how embarrassed she was when clients came to the home office because of how awful her landscape looked. The company they were with before us was a referral by a friend of theirs who said, "They are really cheap and do good work", so our client gave them the work for the season.
So let me ask you, when have you ever found this phrase to be true in any kind of service? The client responded "I should have known better but we were desperate to find someone". When I came out to the property for the consultation, I looked around the property before I got to the front door so I had an idea what problems they were having right off the bat. It was the end of April when most of the landscapes are in bloom, the lawn is greener and the season is just beginning so we had to get moving fast.
Before knocking on the door I had gathered notes on what problems I saw that needed to be addressed. There were weeds in the gardens 8" high, dandelion and clover weeds were present in the entire lawn and the fresh mulch that was put down a few weeks ago was already losing its color.
Landscape Maintenance Cost
The first hurdle I knew I would have is the landscape maintenance cost. The current company was skipping all the details and getting done as fast as possible to make a profit. We know that things done right take a little more time and skill. Paying a little more for a company you can depend on and does things the right way the first time is worth it. If you think about it, paying a little more to have it done the right way once is less expensive than having it done twice, which ends up coming out of your pocket.
There are too many of these types of landscaping companies who believe giving customers the lowest price without concern for quality is the best practice.

Finding the Right Landscape Maintenance Company
This type of thinking is the number one reason 33% of landscape companies go out of business in the first 2-5 years. Go with a reputable company that has been around for at least 10+ years. Even then, do your research and ask lots of questions and for referrals. If you are looking for a great landscape maintenance company in Hockessin, Delaware then give us a call today.
