Recently at last month’s I-94 West Chamber of Commerce’s Medina Club, I had the opportunity to meet Brian Mock, Sales and Operations Manager for Northern Roots Lawn Care company. There are lots of lawn care companies out there so it’s a very competitive business. Not only is quality of service critical as well as being customer friendly, but keeping an eye open to other services that might be a natural add-on are important not only to drive revenue for the lawn care provider but also to keep customers happy.
I’ve seen Northern Roots around that metro and we’ve had real estate clients who have their services and like their work. So when I was talking with Brian about their business, I was already familiar with who they were, but I didn’t know how quickly they were growing nor all the services that they offer.
The one service I thought was particularly helpful was they do spot spraying for mosquitoes for their customers. I thought this was a great idea especially if you have a big outdoor party, wedding, or any kind of outdoor gathering. It sounds like the application lasts for about 3 weeks and some customers have them come spray regularly to keep the mosquito count much lower all summer.
If you’d like to know more, be sure to contact them on their website – www.northern-roots.com or call Emery Skoog, owner, or Brian Mock, sales & operations at 763-258-4724.
Also, if you are a local business owner in the Medina and Corcoran area, please consider joining us once per month for our Medina Club networking meeting. It’s held the second Wednesday of the month from 11am to noon at the new Medina Public Works Facility and Police Station.
