Rick’s Corner: Spring is on the way…

Hello everyone,

This is Rick from Hofstetter Landscaping. As we reach the 2/3rd mark of February of 2015, I am happy to say that spring is on its way at last and will be here in just a few more weeks. I know most of us will be happy to see the end of this winter. Certainly Ashleigh and I will be glad to see it over.

We had enough good weather in the fall of 2014 for the crew to work right up into mid-December, before it became too cold to work outdoors.

Rick Hofstetter and Ashleigh MacDonald have come a long way since 1989. Through both on-the-job education and an extensive array of coursework offered by paving stone manufacturers and Landscape Ontario as well as other providers in the industry, the pair have worked to give themselves the skills needed to build a successful landscaping business. Rick is quick to point out that his brother Ron Hofstetter, Crew Supervisor, has now taken over the reins of running the day to day operations with regards to installations and along with our dedicated crew of long term employees has things running very smoothly and continues to get rave reviews from all of our customers.

That dedication has paid off, and this month Hofstetter Landscaping will celebrate twenty-five years as respected participants in a hard-working industry. “It’s easy to compare quotes and default to the cheaper option,” Rick said, “but we’ve made it this long by ensuring that we provide a level of quality and service that is worth the money.”

Hofstetter Landscaping services the Toronto and surrounding areas in which they are well-known for their passion for the industry. The company is a “Unilock Authorized Contractor” and through their association with Unilock, (who is “The Premier Supplier” of landscaping products in North America) use only the highest quality products, installed with passion and expertise. They have also recently launched a permanent display booth at the new Home & Design Expo Center at 155 Consumers Road Toronto.
