Honest Work at an Honest Price. It started for us back in the 1990’s working for my families landscape services company. It wasn’t a big company, but we did good work and we learned what it means to provide consistent great work week in and week out. Rain, wind, snow…..didn’t matter. Today we are a bit larger of a company and still providing commercial and residential clients with landscape related services and products.
Pricing. The death spiral to the bottom! No thanks. We are very fair in our pricing and we take operational efficiency to the nth degree to keep our prices extremely competitive. We pay our employees well. We carry liability insurance. We put all new employee through fully paid training modules. All our tools, supplies and equipment are professional quality.
Organic. Yes, I am finishing a certificate in Organic Landscape Management and have lots of experience in using organic processes. It feels great to not use chemicals. I have a valid BC IPM licence and would only consider using chemicals under the most severe cases.
Less to No Gasoline. Like most every landscape business in the world gas powered small engine equipment makes up the backbone of how we get things done. Co2 emissions and the noise are things everyone can due without – especially the operator! We are starting our migration to electric hand held power tools and hopefully mowers as well.
For the home owner who may use a battery powered blower for 10-15 minutes a week, it’s not much to ask of the equipment. Try managing battery powered tools (4-6 different tools per crew) when you are running them eight to ten hours a day. It is doable and the outdoor power tool industry has been slow to provide real world solutions for people in the landscape industry. That said, we have one professional grade battery tool in operation with another couple to be purchased for 2015 / 2016. It’s always better to walk before you run.
We are innovative in our thinking. New ideas are brought into the business to improve both the quality of our services, the selection of our products and to reduce costs that we pass on to you.
New Programs. We are always looking at new ideas and bringing new client focused programs to market.
Cities and Municipalities We Service
We look at the logistics part of the business with great care. With the high cost of fuel, additional CO2 emissions along with adding more vehicles to our already congested roads, it isn’t in anyone’s best interest to be working too far from their home base. We are based in South Vancouver and not able to service the entire lower mainland – at least not yet. We do offer good coverage, see the map and chart below for details. If you have a Landscapia Membership Card you do receive preferred pricing, “real time deals” notification on local nursery stock along with door to door delivery on most of our eCommerce products.
