About Us – Sun State Landscape Management, Inc.
Combining yesterday’s work ethic, with today’s latest materials and methods to design, create and maintain sustainable outdoor environments for tomorrow… and beyond.
The year was 1989, and SSLM was just getting started. The phone didn’t always ring. Yellow pages ads were in place but it was going to take more that that to take this upstart company from a dead end road in a small Florida town, to a g0-to vendor for some of the most respected properties in the area. While many like businesses opted for TV, radio and “penny saver-type ads, SSLM chose to just keep doing the things that seemed to be working. And the one that worked the best? The trail of satisfied customers- homeowners, businesses, HOA’s, COA’s and others who recognized that all landscape and irrigation contractors are not created equal.
Naturally, it took work. So we worked. We also trained personnel and expanded our services, listening when customers and prospects alike told us needed improvement. We networked, participating in trade shows to both sell our own services, as well as to find the latest and greatest in landscape and irrigation offerings for our clients and prospects. We developed relationships with suppliers of plant material, mulch, trees, shrubs, irrigation components, enabling us to compete with anybody, including those “Big Box” national companies.
Today thousands upon thousands of Tampa Bay area residents live in homes and work in places with landscaping and irrigation designed and installed by Sun State Landscape Management, Inc.. Performing landscape and irrigation installations in new subdivisions, planned communities and commercial parks is something we take seriously, a fact recognized by many builders and developers. It’s not just the quality of our work that keeps them coming back. It is also due to our “on time” record. In three-plus decades installation and landscape services, how many real estate closings have been delayed as a result of issues with SSLM landscaping or irrigation services? Zero. That’s right, Zero. No exceptions, no asterisks.
From day one, SSLM delivered that “wow factor” , the one people always talk about- long before a “wow factor was even “a thing”. We competed for and earned first place in numerous local, regional and state-wide competitions, in residential as well as commercial categories for landscape and irrigation design. We gained all necessary certifications needed, and then some. Today we have licensed/certified people operating all segments of our business – design, installation and maintenance.
If you live or work in West-Central Florida, chances are you drive by communities and commercial properties with landscaping designed, installed and maintained by Sun State Landscape Management, Inc.. Here are some recent images of our work – our crews are good at what they do!
