Along with our landscape crew, we also have two large landscape supply yards. We tore down the building in the second picture and replaced it with a new showroom a few years ago.

No reason to dislike us RJ. Landscape installation is a very small part of our business. Our main business is in the asphalt field with our supply yards a close second. Plenty of work for everyone where we live. And we only have an installation crew at one of our stores. The other is strictly a supply yard

Congratulations on the success! I'd like to have a nursery/mulch yard someday.

Thanks Green. Supply yards are sometimes a challenge. Always gotta have something new for contractors and the general public isn't always the easiest to please

I like you. I dislike the guys around me who buy brick wholesale. Sell to us retail and advertise prices below what we can do the work for since they are getting the brick wholesale. I think some manufacturers even have rules against this. Some also poach customers who go in to look at product.

But I'm interested in how you got to the point where you're at now

I gotcha. We sell to many contractors at a discounted price. I can tell you we don't get our work for our low price.

I don't want to bore you with all the details but I'm the 3rd generation working with the business. If you want to know more just go follow this link http://sonnenberglandscaping.com/abo...rg-landscaping .
