June 2015 - New franchisees join Zones Landscaping Specialists

ARTICLE Joanna Mathers

Brothers Matt and Boyd Gillespie have been made Zones Landscaping Specialists’ newest franchisees. Operating the North Shore and Rodney territories, the pair brings extensive experience in both project management and building to the franchise.

Matt Gillespie says that he became aware of a hole in the market for landscaping services through the course of his work as a project manager for residential renovations.

“A lot of people are choosing to renovate rather than buying, due to the property prices in the current market,” says Matt. “And I noticed that people also wanted to change their outdoor spaces, but didn’t really know where to start.”

Matt Gillespie says that he was impressed by the unique Zones Landscaping Specialists business model and decided it would provide an ideal solution to what he’d identified as missing from the market.

Zones Landscaping Specialists acts as a sort of “one stop shop”, offering a full service from initial assessment and design through to project management and implementation of the project. Matt Gillespie says that top landscape architects and landscape designers are used for the initial assessment and design plans – from that stage other experts in various areas of building and landscaping come on board to install the project. This is all overseen by a project manager charged with ensuring a smooth and hassle free process.

Matt Steele – Franchise operations manager of Zones Landscaping Specialists – says the landscaping company’s unique approach allows clients the flexibility to undertake the project incrementally according to their budget.

“Clients can decide to do the project in stages – returning to it when budget allows. This means they have the plans already in place and be assured of the same high quality of workmanship,” says Steele.

He says that another advantage is that as a national company, Zones Landscaping Specialists are able to negotiate excellent wholesale rates.

“This means we can offer highly competitive pricing.  It also means we can access top level service from our suppliers based on close working relationships at Head Office and Franchise level.”

This ensures a streamlined, cost-efficient process that is guaranteed to yield the best possible landscaping results.
