Everybody else has a thread, so I thought I would start one. I'll post some pics of my work. I always welcome suggestions, that's how we learn.

Here are some pics of a landscape job I just finished this week.

Looks Great! there is just one thing missing that i always add but some dont, i like to add caps to all my retaining walls, just gives it a finishing touch. Nice work though.

I actually didn't do the wall. Another contractor did. The homeowner bought blocks from Rural King for the wall. I would have personally suggested a bigger block for the size of that house. Thanks for all the compliments guys. This is my 3rd year in business. My goal is to land a project like that every week.

Here is a pic of the same house as the post before. We put down 6000 sq. ft. of rubber mulch and 300' of concrete curbing!! This is a picture of a dry creek bed we did where the water from their driveway naturally ran off. We decided to do wrap it all the way back to the house to make it appear more natural.

Wow! It's been a year since I posted here? A lot has happened in 2014! Pics and the story to come...

chrisvinky
11-15-2014, 01:44 PM
So here in a nutshell is what happened this year...

In April, we received a call from the family of a local competitor who had a retail nursery and landscaping company. The gentleman who owned the business had been at the same location for 57 years and had passed away in February.

They wanted to know if we would be interested in leasing the property. Of course we said "Yes" and began talks with the family. We ended up leasing at an great rate and got to keep the same phone number! I anticipated that we would double or triple our sales due to the exposure and hired our first full time employee in May along with one other guy for the field and one guy for the store.

I figure we will end up almost tripling sales from last year by the time we close out December. We actually have grown faster than I would like because I have estimates and jobs that we are too far behind on. Hopefully we can add more in the spring.

Anyway, I know this is a picture thread, I just wanted to share the story before posting some of the pics of the store opening.

Way back when i believe your thread was one of the first one's i read, Ideally I'd like to have a nursery in addition to our lawn and landscape service division.

chrisvinky
11-15-2014, 05:32 PM
It probably has been the biggest source of leads for jobs to date. When we started the retail location, my goal was to make enough to cover the cost of that location because I knew we would get more work. It certainly has done that!

Here is one we recently completed. We pulled most of the old shrubs out on this one except for a few hollies that the homeowner wanted to keep. We had already priced building a planter into the existing concrete sidewalk. Halfway into it, they decided to tear out the cracked old concrete sidewalk and add the pavers with the lighted columns. I think it turned out nice!
