Summer Loving Hats!

Summer Loving Hats!

Hot off the press….we have some new custom made Headgear! Downtown Houston Skyline is the perfect setting to snap this picture of our new custom made Headgear! We hope everyone is enjoying the outdoors this SUMMER ! (or at least trying too )…in our skilled trade, we know it can get sizzling HOT outdoors…and we realize It’s the simple things in life that make a huge impact on your outdoor experience! For instance….hats!  We recently placed a small run of custom printed hats from our friends at OMGiprintshirts.com, a local business and dear friends of ours. Great customer experience from start to finsih. Our team has been working very hard under the summer heat with our old hat/ uniforms…and they are very happy to have our new hats in! Each team member received a hat and when asked what they thought of the new fabric, look, fit etc. they were very appreciative! “Oh wow, this fabric is better!” followed by “yes, can’t wait to rock this tomorrow!” and “ Can I have two?” To which the answer was “yes!”….and now we have to double up on our next OMG order! We love to make our employees feel appreciated and if there is anything we can do to make this summer heat more bearable- whether it’s a simple hat, change in fabric, look & feel of uniforms ….we are going to do it!  We hope this summer will continue to be a fun, healthy & successful one for everyone!

Website Launch

 Importance of Launching A Website By: Joe Trevino Welcome and thank you for taking the time to visit our website! For the past two years my wife Vanessa and I have have been operating Home Turf Texas Landscape & Design without a website.  At first this wasn’t such an issue, we were considered a small family business the first year with only a handful of commercial and residential properties under our belt. We thought in this day in age with more consumers moving toward social media to find what they need and want, we wouldn’t have a problem growing our landscaping company by solely using social media as promotional outlet. We were wrong! Social media is a great way to keep your customers informed much more quickly and let our clients know of any great deals we may have for the month. We currently use Twitter to get instant landscape industry news and share our campanies most recent projects and local events. Our Facebook business page is a great way for us  to connect with  Business Partners, Friends, Family and the Houston Community. Our Instagram and Google+ Business Page have also been very active over the past couple years, and is a great tool for before and after shots of projects. The reality check came when our company began to grow rapidly. Not a bad thing to grow in just 2 short years, but we needed a website to accommodate industry high demand for service and at the same time show our consumers our landscaping work in beautiful pictures. We also needed a website to let people know we are here, we...
