Washington’s Top Rated Local® Landscapers Award Winner: Advanced Landscape Management

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Advanced Landscape Management is a 2018 award winner for landscapers in Washington!

For all of your landscaping needs in Seattle, choose Advanced Landscape Management.

Advanced Landscape Management has earned dozens of online reviews with an average rating of 4.96 stars, an impeccable Rating Score™ of 95.61 and a 2018 Top Rated Local award for being ranked among the top 10 landscapers in all of Washington!

Here’s just one of their many five-star reviews:

“Jim and his crew have been taking care of our landscaping needs since 2003. The work is consistently high-quality, and the cost is consistently reasonable! Those of us with a ‘brown thumb’ salute you, Advanced Landscape Management. Thank you, thank you!”

Not Your Average Landscaping Company

The team at Advanced Landscape Management has been in business for 31 years. No matter how big or small the job may be, they do quality work, and they stand behind their products and services.

Advanced Landscape Management is the kind of company that follows through on what they say they’ll do, and that has helped them earn an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau, as well as tons of amazing reviews from their happy customers.

We asked the owner of Advanced Landscape Management, James Heald, why they do what they do and how they work to make the world a better place. Here’s what he had to say:

“Our mission is to serve our customers, to create beautiful, outdoor living spaces and to take pride in the art of creating those outdoor living spaces.”

Building Success Through Quality Work

Their motto at Advanced Landscape Management is, “To serve our customers and to do quality work.” According to James, it’s his team’s dedication to quality work that creates happy customers who write reviews organically. But no matter what service they provide, they always make it a point to ask their customers for feedback, and the fact that they always get a good response is a testament to the high-quality work they provide.

Because of Advanced Landscape Management’s unwavering commitment to quality service, they’ve grown largely through word of mouth. They’ve always been busy and never hurt for business; in fact, they are booked for the whole year of 2019!

We asked James what advice he has for other business owners looking to grow their business and build their online reputation. Here are his words of wisdom:

“Be a person of your word. Do what you say you’re going to do. Always be sure to serve the customer. If you make a mistake, admit to it and make it right. Do quality work. If you get all those things down, you’ll always have folks that refer you, because in this industry, it’s hard to find quality people to do quality work.”


Congratulations to the team at Advanced Landscape Management for being a 2018 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, James, for taking the time to speak with us!

Washington’s Top Rated Local® Landscapers Award Winner: Woody’s Custom Landscaping

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Woody’s Custom Landscaping is a 2018 award winner for landscapers in Washington!

If the time has come to take your outdoor space to the next level, there’s one company in Vancouver and Clark County that stands above the rest — Woody’s Custom Landscaping.

Woody’s Custom Landscaping has earned more than 100 online reviews with an average rating of 4.70 stars, a superb Rating Score™ of 97.00 and a 2018 Top Rated Local award for being ranked number three out of all of the landscapers in Washington!

Here’s just one of the many five-star reviews they’ve received from their happy clients:

“It was a pleasure working with Woody and his team. They were all easy to work with and were focused on making sure that the job was done the way we wanted. It was definitely a collaborative process, and I appreciated their professional insight. They took a backyard of mud and turned it into a very functional outdoor space. We will be spending as much time as possible in the backyard for years to come. Thank you, Woody!” – Andrea M

Not Your Average Landscaping Company

Woody’s Custom Landscaping is at the forefront of the outdoor living industry. Over the past 15 years, paver patios and segmented retaining walls have been a big hit in Washington, and the team at Woody’s Custom Landscaping is more than equipped to help their customers with these services, as well as many others. No matter how big or small the service may be; however, the team is always focused on customer satisfaction.

We asked James “Woody” Woodhead, the President of Woody’s Custom Landscaping, why he does what he does and what he does to make the world a better place. Here’s what he had to say:

“I chose this profession because, every day, you are creating, and when you do the planting and landscaping portion, that benefits society and our clients by improving air quality and other little things. We want our clients to be happy, and that, in return, has made us happy with a plenitude of work.”

Building Success Through Experience and Client Satisfaction

Woody credits Woody’s Custom Landscaping’s strong online reputation to his many years of experience. He’s been a contractor for 40 years, with 11 of those years being spent in California and 29 years in Washington. In all of that time, Woody has learned to keep at it and to keep his nose clean.

In addition to working toward building a powerful online reputation, Woody has also worked hard to keep his clients satisfied. A lot of Woody’s customers are so satisfied with their services that they are happy to spread the word via online reviews and by telling their friends and neighbors.

Last but certainly not least, Woody has been blogging for 12 to 13 years now, and it has helped him grow his company’s online presence. His blogs also demonstrate to his clients that he has a lot of information and knows what he’s doing.

We asked Woody what advice he has for other business owners looking to build their online reputation and grow their business. Here are his words of wisdom:

“Start blogging and getting involved with all social media platforms — or at least some of them — and try to make a presence there so that you can make your online presence stronger and stronger.”


Congratulations to the team at Woody’s Custom Landscaping for being a 2018 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Woody, for taking the time to speak with us!

Arizona’s Top Rated Local® Landscapers Award Winner: Grasshopper Landscaping

Top Rated Local® is proud to announce that, due to their incredible 92.00 Rating Score™, Grasshopper Landscaping is an award-winning landscaping company in Arizona.

From weed control and irrigation installation to tree trimming and landscape design, Grasshopper Landscaping is the company to turn to when you need comprehensive landscaping services in Arizona.

Grasshopper Landscaping’s number one goal is to exceed their clients’ expectations, from the initial call to the completion of the job, and that goal has helped them earn a stellar Rating Score and positive reviews. Here’s just one of the many five-star reviews they’ve received from their happy clients:

“Outstanding experience with the guys from Grasshopper Landscaping. They were very respectful and did a great job trimming my Oak Tree. They cleaned up and asked to inspect their work. I highly recommend this company for any work you may need on your property.” – Phillip G

So many companies would love to have the kind of reputation that Grasshopper Landscaping has managed to build, so we sat down with Owner, Marie Trejo, to learn how they did it. Here’s what she had to say:

What is your secret to such a strong online reputation?

We do good work, it’s as simple as that. After every job, we follow up on our work to ensure that the client is always happy. We also ask our clients to leave reviews. They don’t always leave reviews, but we definitely appreciate it when they do!

What makes you different? In other words, if you had one minute to sell somebody on why they should choose you, what would you say?

What sets us apart from other landscapers is that we are an established company; we don’t just run our business out of our house like many companies in our field. We have an office location with a full staff ready to help our clients. Landscaping is an easy business to get into, and there are a lot of businesses that go under after only a few months. But we’ve been providing professional landscaping services since 1996!

Why do you do what you do?

When we first started, we were newly married and helping my husband’s farther out with a few jobs. After a few years of helping him, we decided to focus on growing our business into a full-time affair.

Outside of building a strong online reputation, what else do you do to market and grow your business?

In the beginning, we spread the word about our business mostly through word of mouth, but over the past few years, a lot of our business has been driven online. Reviews are a very important part of driving online traffic to your business.

We also have our trucks wrapped, so that we get exposure when people see us driving around town. Additionally, our big building helps to bring a lot of people in.

What advice do you have for other businesses trying to build a strong online reputation and grow their business?

Stand behind your work, do good work that you’re proud of and don’t be afraid to ask for referrals and reviews — in fact, be bold in that aspect.


Thank you so much, Marie, for taking the time to share your secrets to success with us, and congratulations to you and the entire team at Grasshopper Landscaping for being a 2018 Top Rated Local award winner!
