About this pro

How does your business stand out?

Years ago, a friend of mine posed a question to the masses on a Facebook post. He asked "If you don't have time to do it right the first time, how will you find time to do it again?" He was referring to some difficulty he had with a contractor during the construction of their new home, and his question stuck with me. I had always prided myself on doing a good job on every project but it made me wonder if I could do more. Had I ever rushed to complete one job just so I could start on another? Was I truly focusing on quality, not quantity? The answers made me step back. There were changes to be made if I was going to become one of the most trusted companies in the area. So, I reduced my number of mowing accounts. I became more selective with the projects I chose to complete. I was no longer driven by making a profit, I was driven by creating a product to be completely proud of. This upset a few people but most understood. It may have cost me a bad review but it was worth it. I was free of the grind of doing things quickly. I could truly focus on doing things right the first time! That is how we stand out about the rest. That is why we are a top Thumbtack Pro. That is why customers want us to keep working for them, and why they tell their friends to call. We do it right the first time. We work with your budget and find the best product you can afford. We only have one level of service...the best. You can call the company that has 400 other accounts. You could call the guy that does 30 other projects each month or mows 15 other yards each day. Or you can call us. The choice is yours. Choose wisely.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

There is no greater joy (at least in the working world) than working for yourself and doing something you love. I thoroughly enjoy my interactions with my customers and working with the earth each day. Most of us dream of having a beautiful lawn and landscape, and it honors me to be chosen by a customer to help fulfill that dream.

    This was a request for a tree planting. Brian responded quickly and worked me into his schedule to see the space. He provided multiple suggestions for a tree that fit the space as well as my wants for coverage and aesthetics. He provided estimates quickly and obtained and planted the tree in a more than reasonable amount of time. Very happy with the outcome. A pleasure to work with.

    Eco-Logical quickly responded to my message to set up an estimate and quickly got the work done thereafter. Brian was very knowledgeable and recommended a solution that perfectly fit what I needed and was economical. I will definitely use them again.

    Did not hire. Too exprnsive
    Brian E. Jun 30, 2017

    Thank you for your input. Was the quote too expensive compared to quotes from other legitimate companies or was it more than you thought it should cost? Typically we provide multiple options and can work in most budgets for landscaping projects. That said, quality work comes with a cost and we do not cut corners to save time or money. It would be helpful for you to provide more information about the job proposal so we can go over the prices to make sure they are in line with standards. Unfortunately, since this is anonymous review it does not help to better the company. A blanket statement of "too expensive" is not constructive enough to help make changes. Please consider sending us the information about the proposal (or at least tell me your name) so we have the opportunity to review the prices for the benefit of future customers. Thanks

    Amazing Sod Transformation!
    Brian and his crew did an outstanding job sodding over an old fenced flowerbed we used to have in our front yard. It's like it was never there! Thanks, Brian--we love it! ~Mark & Nicole Root Earlysville, VA

    Not pleased.
    Initially everything went great. My wife and I met with Brian discussed our vision and even gave him original blueprints for a landscape when everything was originally planted. After paying for the original work which was very good we requested additional items such as mulching and continued upkeep. Brian informed us some point there after that he was too busy to manage our needs. I understand workload but felt very put off by this. To this day after multiple requests Brian still has not returned my original blueprints after multiple calls and emails.

    Brian put in a new walkway using two colors of pavers. It is beautiful and I am so very pleased. He was here when he said he would be and completed the job on time. I intend to use his company for some other jobs I have planned.

Thank you Mr Emert for a job well done and thank you Thumbtack for his recommendation.

    We needed Brian for a quick one time service due to our lawn mower needing to be repaired. Brian and his crew did a fantastic job. They came in, were done quickly, and left the lawn looking great. We will definitely use his again if the need arises!

    Brian understood the problems I was having with my lawn and he offered clear and detailed solutions. I had my lawn resodded, and the work was done in one day. The care of the new grass and watering/mowing needs were clearly explained. I like Brian's energy and the support Eco-Logic will give to my new lawn.

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I am currently taking two courses, one in turf management and one in landscape technology. I constantly research new companies and products that will help me provide better services. I am a member of multiple organizations that keep me in touch with the latest trends in the lawn care and landscaping field. I like learning something new and I constantly seek to expand both my knowledge and resources in my field.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Always meet the person who will be providing the service. Even though it is an outdoor service, and a very messy one, owners of any company should still maintain a professional appearance. Are they educated in the field? Are they doing any sort of continuing education? What groups are they a member of? Do they have customer references? And perhaps the most important is do you agree with the philosophy of the company. What are they doing that is better or different than other companies in the field.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
I am going be to completely honest and come off sounding rude with this answer, but here goes. This profession is filled with guys that have no idea what they are doing. They are undereducated and only driven by the prospect of making money. Anyone with a mower can cut grass. That part is not hard. Most people are able to plant a new tree or shrub. Digging a hole is not hard either. But what happens when you start getting tire ruts in your lawn from using a mower that is too big and going in the same direction very time? What happens when that tree or shrub begins to die because it was the wrong plant for the area or it was plated using the same soil that came out of the hole? Nothing. Your lawn will not get repaired. Your plant will not get replaced. Once you bring up the issue you will most likely never see the person again. You will have to find someone else that will hopefully do a better job next time. The service "professional" may think they are doing a good job. They may think they are doing things correctly. But the truth is they simply don't know. The bad part is that the information on how to do things correctly is readily available for anyone that wants to learn. But these guys don't make time to learn. This profession is based on speed. How many lawns can you mow in a day? How many yards of mulch can you spread in a hour? It doesn't matter if it is done right as long as they get it done. They use the largest equipment and the quickest methods to complete tasks with no thought of the possible consequences. They want your money and they really don't care if they never work for you again. They figure they will find someone else to work for and do it all over again. They will get paid and you will get stuck with bad service.
