What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Yes, I have completed my Bachelors degree in Business Administration to be that professional business person, manager, and strategist. I attend seminars, classes, and workshops to attain CEU's (continuing education credits). This enables me to keep my double certification in landscape management and installation. I continually study and review the latest information on insect damage, diseases, plants, and time saving procedures to provide my services at reasonable prices.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
I wish customers knew just how passionate I am about this profession. I have been active in the landscape industry for 20 years and there are many clients and other landscape companies who think it involves just cutting grass, weeding, or fertilizing. I do not. I perform services for a reason. I care about landscapes and nothing saddens me more than homeowners who neglect their trees, shrubs, and turf. If they care for their homes on the inside, they should also care how the outward landscape appearance of their homes reflects them.
