Death by Spreadsheet

Is your landscape service falling short of your expectations?

During these uncertain times, it’s more important than ever to protect your investment. Many large landscape providers in the Florida Panhandle “manage by spreadsheet” and only allocate a certain number of “man-hours” per job towards a particular property each week or month. Once that number is reached, they simply pack up and move on to the next job, so they don’t eat into the shareholders’ profits. Is this the type of landscape service you want to work with?

This is a terrible way to manage any business in the service industry.

At Horticulture Services Group, we are large enough to handle any size property, and our customers’ landscape needs come first. Your landscape does not know what spreadsheets are and could care less if the person maintaining it hit their numbers this month. We take an annual approach to managing your landscape with an understanding that there will be times when flexibility is needed to stay on top of things and “do the right thing” to protect your asset. Of course, we look at our numbers as any responsible business should, but we take a long-view approach to allocating resources so that we are delivering the best service as efficiently as possible.
