Why We Are Unique

People, it’s always about the people who are in an organization that makes it special.

19 years ago Joel Kayser had a vision to build a landscape company around people, rather than find people to fill a spot. For almost 20 years, our founder’s vision has proven to be our biggest reason for success in becoming an excellent company. His vision was based upon the Biblical standard of the “golden rule”. Treat others as you would want to be treated.

Joel wants experts working at his home when he hires them, so, he pursued advanced education to be that expert for his clients. With multiple degrees and numerous certifications in horticulture, we are experts in our field.  Our company puts our employees through horticultural education to further that experience of excellence for our clients.

From the beginning, Joel didn’t want Well Rooted Gardens to be average because no one wants average work performed. Our clients expect the best, so every morning we meet as a team to discuss service and communication to provide the best experience possible for our clients.
Why are we unique in our space? Because you as our client have unique desires, needs and wants, and we are here to serve you in a unique way “As you would want to be treated” for that is the golden rule.
