About this pro

Because Samaritan Landscaping is a small company, ran by Brandon Gongaware, a lifetime landscaper.  The business itself has been around since 2008, servicing residents of the Phoenix area with tireless enthusiasm.  As a native Arizonan, I know the area, climate, and local plant life intimately.  With Brandon in the wheelhouse, and a small crew, Samaritan Landscaping is better suited to focus on each job with full attention to detail.  Unlike a lot of our competitors, we don’t rush through any job and we stay in continuous contact with our clients (they are clients because the term customer means we are selling something, but we are not salesmen) so the final project is exactly what the client wanted.  Also due to small size and low overhead costs, we are able to offer services at well below our competitors.  It’s typical on small jobs to only have one or two workers, and the owner, Brandon, is ALWAYS one of them.  So from beginning to end, you can rest assured that nothing is missed, forgotten, or wrong.  If anything somehow does “skip through the cracks”, we will make it right.  If out-of-the-box ideas and unique concepts, this is anything but “cookie cutter” landscapes.  Special services we offer include: rock art, fired glass, ponds, streams(both real and creatively faked), pavers, etc.  Most estimates are free of charge unless over 15 miles away or more  from Avondale AZ.

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

Provide prospective client with a SOFT quote on labor only (client can provide materials, or I can purchase and deliver at a modest 5% increase for vehicle maintenance and equipment repairs).  Then if the online quote is acceptable, I travel to clients house or business location depending on the job.  There i take precise measurements, evaluate job site for hidden possible issues while addressing issues to up to date.  I then can draw up a written estimate (valid 30 days from date signed) or written work order contract.  If contract is agreed upon, the deposit is due (1/2 TOTAL costs, or 1/2 labor if job is labor only

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

i received my associates degree in computer programming, which you wouldn’t think would help, but it really does.  The problem solving skills from that education together with more than a decade working with heavy equipment, building pads, roads, etc makes for a very efficient, carefully thought out plan through completion, which means I usually finish a day or two early.

How did you get started in this business?

Been playing in the dirt since 1980.  Funny, my dad used to say “you will never make a living by playing in the dirt and mud!”
