LandOpt Contractor Network Expands to Texas

11/14/2012

Arlington, Texas-based Baldi Gardens, Inc. has joined the LandOpt Contractor Network, expanding the Network's footprint to include the Dallas-Ft. Worth region of the Lone Star state.

A full-service landscape company founded in 1993 by Ricardo and Lillina (Lilly) Baldi, Baldi Gardens is a family-owned business that also includes sons Giuseppe (GM/Maintenance Services) and Carlo (Project Services/Design) as integral management team members. The business has earned a reputation over the past 20 years as one of the premiere residential and commercial landscape service providers in Arlington, Grand Prairie, Kennedale, Cedar Hill and Mansfield, providing everything from gardening and lawn care maintenance services to project work such as construction, water features, drainage design, low voltage lighting, stone layout and commercial development. 

According to Giuseppe, LandOpt provided an answer to a long-standing growth question.  "As a company, we've done well but have seen our revenue remain at roughly the same level year over year," he noted.  "We knew we were lacking in systems and processes, but we weren't sure exactly what we were missing.  When we discovered LandOpt, it seemed to be answer that we had been looking for." 

From his perspective, the benefits of becoming a LandOpt Contractor are many, especially as it relates to his current team. "LandOpt will bring internal structure that will benefit everyone. Having assigned roles will make it clear to everyone what his/her job is. The systems will allow us to track progress and review how each person is performing against plan," he explained. 

Of equal importance is the training that will be provided. "Ongoing, role-specific training will be a huge benefit to our team. This is all a very positive change in culture for our company and everyone is excited to be part of the company's growth." 

Baldi becomes LandOpt's first Texas-based contractor and, according to LandOpt President & CEO Tim Smith, is the first of what he hopes will be many in the state.
