Chuck Briggs encourages his clients to have year-round landscape maintenance.
Armed with a beautiful new pick-up and large trailer in which he hauls
brush and stores his lawn equipment, Chuck is licensed, bonded and
insured for both residential and commercial work.
When I asked Chuck what his
specialty was, he replied, “It’s got to be shrub trimming,
I’ve done it for so long. I even do ornamental trimming, carving
animals like swans, and even chairs out of bushes. It’s
really an art, and takes lots of time and practice, but I’ve been
doing shrub trimming for years.”
But that’s not all
that’s in Chuck’s repertoire. He also mows lawns,
trims hedges, puts down bark, cleans gutters, pressure washes and
paints decks, fixes fences, prunes fruit trees, and hauls away trash
and debris. The only thing he can’t do is add new things to
a yard; that’s for landscapers. But what he does do is
beautifully maintain existing landscapes.
Chuck emphasizes that he encourages his customers to
have a year-round maintenance plan. “I know the grass
doesn’t grow year-round, but that’s when you can have your
gutters cleaned, your shrubs trimmed and trees pruned, and maybe mow
the lawn once a month during that time,” says Chuck.
I asked Chuck if he had anything to say about
advertising in the South Coast Shopper. He replied, “Due to
getting phone calls every day because of the Shopper, I feel
that’s it’s made my business what it is today. I put an ad
in the Shopper for 12 weeks, and didn’t hear anything for a week,
but when the phone rang that first call paid for my ad. Now I have 35
accounts, and I just scheduled my ad for another 12 weeks. The
Shopper is great!”
