Lets be honest, we all can be
a little persnickety at times. Especially when it comes to our property. This reminds me of an older man named Frank, who called our office a few years back. After I answered the phone, he went straight to the point. He went on to tell me how he was retiring and he and the Mrs. are going to be traveling and he needs someone to take care of his lawn and landscape. But, he didn't want just anyone. He wanted the best. He wanted someone who cared and put as much attention to detail into his property that he did. Frank told me all about his lawn, and the types of seed that he planted. He also named me every plant and perennial that was in his landscape. Then the quizzing happened. Frank began to throw little trick questions like, "So, when you boys come out in March or April for my spring clean up. Will you mulch?" Knowing how many perennials and the care he has for his property I went on to tell Frank that I would like to wait until the end of April or May to mulch. I went on to explain how I wanted the soil to thaw out before mulching to prevent mold and insect issues, and how I would like to see the perennials surface before mulching. Luckily Frank liked that answer. He went on with a few more questions. But what really got me was when Frank said, "look, some say I can be persnickety about my lawn. Truth is, I am." My reply to Frank was, "Frank, I love to hear that. I love to hear that your homes appearance is important to you. I believe you will see that our crews can also be persnickety when it comes to your property's needs."
Today, we still have good old Frank as a customer. The point of this story and why I share it is becuase we take pride in the work we do. We are not a bunch of laid off factory workers looking for something temporary to do. We are professionals who love this industry and take pride in the work and attention detail that we provide. This is our career and our goal is exceed our customers expectations.
