The Alliance community has made it worthwhile for Enviroscapes to stay in the area.
“We work for clients who care about their image. The Alliance community not only cares about their properties, but these businesses prefer to do work with local contractors if they can offer the services that are needed. Their support has helped us grow,” Todd explained.
He added, “Local businesses are also invested in the city of Alliance and are continually doing their part to make it a better place to live, work and play. When everyone is working to to improve the community, it becomes contagious. This is another reason we’ve stayed.”
An Industry Leader in Outdoor Careers
Enviroscapes provides commercial landscape services to some of the largest businesses in Ohio, West Virginia and Pennsylvania. Companies like Timken and First Energy choose Enviroscapes because of their quality work and exceptional service.
“In today’s corporate environment, it’s not common to find a locally owned regional provider like us that has the capacity of a National Firm. I truly believe that companies, especially those in the Greater Alliance Area, prefer to support local, homegrown businesses. That, combined with our great track record, is how we’ve built long-lasting relationships with our clients.”
Todd’s great track record is about more than completing a job on time, it’s how he approaches landscaping.
Enviroscapes employs the latest technology to provide clients with the best service possible. They create and patent their own equipment, have GPS trackers on every vehicle for worker accountability and even use drones to survey large properties. This, in conjunction with their Green practices and range of landscaping services, has allowed Enviroscapes to become one of the top Outdoor Career Companies Nationwide.
