For our first business review, we sit down with Jeff from Fullerton Landscaping a local landscaping company from Fullerton California. This post is apart of our ongoing series highlighting local businesses in the Orange County area. If you're interested in a post for your own business, reach out to us here.
Jeff: Fullerton landscaping is a local landscaping business in Fullerton California. I have a background in landscaping from long summers with my dad working in our yard growing up, and I was looking for a job and decided to start a company instead! I found out I like landscaping and was good at it, so I decided to continue with this line of work. It might sound strange, but I really enjoy working outside with my hands and love being able to work with different clients on their yards everyday.
Jeff: We started in 2018, but really got going this year (2019). We're reaching out to home owners everyday, so we are working to expand our client base.
Jeff: I really enjoyed working in my dads yard when I was younger. I just ended up liking working with my hands more than being stuck in some office somewhere. It might be an unconventional path, but it works for me!
Jeff: The toughest part about getting started was....starting! I'd say the hardest part was getting the first client, which actually came from a neighbor from my parents! That really helped because we were able to then use this person as a reference for other local home owners. After that, i'd say it's mainly the transportation of equipment. It can get hard transporting all our equipment around, but we make it work!
Jeff: That's an interesting question! I'd say i would probably have spoken to more home owners by just going door to door around my parents house! As scary as it sounds to go in cold like that, I'm sure people would have responded pleasantly if I mentioned something about their yards! Other than that, maybe try other forms of advertising as well.
Jeff: I'd say the toughest part of doing this, other than the work, is probably all of this online stuff. From scheduling, to my own website, to google, social media, etc, it can add up quick. I mainly just use my phone and thankfully most of the services I use have apps.
Jeff: You should try us because we take pride in what we do, provide a great service at a fair price, and do it quickly and efficiently. We also provide weekly or monthly service contracts on yard maintenance, leaf removal, and many other standard landscaping services.
Jeff: We've mainly been doing it through word of mouth, social media, and referrals.
It has! Although we rely heavily on person-to-person contact, we also talk with our customers frequently on social media.
