West County Landscaping is a well-established landscape provider specializing in landscape installation and maintenance serving the St. Louis County area. The business sells landscape materials and services to both residential and commercial property decision makers.
We operate three major divisions. The Maintenance Division is based around lawn & landscape maintenance scheduled on a weekly basis, which is offered with extreme care for the client's property. The Installation Division is based around providing all aspects of landscape installation from conception and design to finishing touches. Additional maintenance services are sold to these clients to ensure the lasting beauty of their investment. The third division is Retail Sales. This is the youngest division offering walk-in landscape design services and a landscape material show room. Limited material is onsite with most materials delivered directly by our providers.
West County Landscaping was established in 1996, by the current president, Scott Marquart, landscape industry professional with vast experience. Currently, the business operates out of a central office and uses the labor of trained crews to serve clients. Initially, the business started with 2 employees and has now grown to include 11 employees. In the beginning years, Mr. Marquart not only handled all lawn maintenance and landscaping field work, but he also managed the office. Today, the business has sufficiently grown to employee an office manager, an office administrative assistant, 3 crew leaders, and members for each operating crew.
Now that the business is operating with 11 employees serving on 3 separate crews we have found that scheduling has become very difficult. Our employees work long hours each day and trying to keep track of how many hours each employee has each week to avoid overtime can be tough. We also find it difficult to keep track of requested time off. Also, being in the landscape business, scheduling is weather dependent which can lead to difficulty trying to communicate a daily schedule to our employees in regards to start times and delays in shifts.
