Big Customer Service
We want this company to reflect the values that we believe in - do good work - don't promise more than you can deliver and provide clear value for the time and money clients invest.
It's important that people know the scope of our business model - The Wheelbarrow Gardener = If we can't complete your project with our wheelbarrow, shovel, rake and a few strong backs then the project is too big. There are enough landscape companies out there that can look after you if you require a tree spade, backhoe or skid steer. We enjoy doing the smaller design projects that people don't feel comfortable approaching the big guys for, or feel they can't do it on their own either due to lack of ability, knowledge or time.
This will be our 6th year in business and we have not changed our priorities or values, we are still working for the little guy. Seniors who want to stay in their homes with some help, homes and condominiums that need assistance with short or long term garden maintenance (we don't do lawns). People that want to learn about gardening or just need a little help understanding what they have or what they want in a garden space. .
We continue to learn from the previous years and we are always looking for ways to improve our services and give you the very best value for your dollars spent.
