FAQs


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

I usually either make an appointment on the phone or if the client likes through email or text. I then go out and take a look at the landscape project they want completed. I get a feel for what they are looking for, so know what they want exactly and others like ideas thrown at them.  If it is a larger job I put together a luttle plan to give them an idea of what it could look like. I then prepare an estimate and either go out and present it or sometimes the client prefers I email it to them.


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

I have been to numerous seminars and classes on hardscape applications.  I have had a few college courses relating to landscape design. I've been to irrigation courses.  Basically I've been to and continue to go to classes to help me learn all the new and best ways to become the best landscape installer I can be for the past 14 years.


How did you get started in this business?

I attended St. Cloud State University and graduated in 2003. At the time my parents had a custom home building business and we thought it would be a good idea to have a landscape company to go along with the building business and that is how ColorScapes Landscaping started.


What types of customers have you worked with?

I've worked with residential homeowners, property managers of apartment buildings and townhouse associations as well as commercial landscape applications. 


Describe a recent project you are fond of.

I did a full landsvape renovation of a large yard where I was able to put my ideas down and create a beautiful landscape. We did natural stone retaining walls along with a large paver patio and fire pit area. Around the fire pit we constructed a nice seating bench out of natural stone with the seating bench made of travertine tiles.


What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

What they really want done. What they can afford. Have a budget in mind and share it with the contractor. Nothing is worse for a contractor then hearing all of what the customer wants done and I put it together on a plan and an estimate only to hear or not hear at all that this is way too much and I don't end up with a chance at the job.
