Richard Walker - Owner Dreamscapes Unlimited LLC
My career interest in the green industry began before I really knew what a career was. By the age of 13 I was maintaining numerous lawns in the neighborhood, had printed business cards and flyers in a graphic arts class, and was on my way to just enjoying life.
Throughout the last 39 years of my life and professional career I have excelled at various other tasks, skills and, accomplishments. I have worked for several small companies in the green industry. Even at the age of 14 when I joined an outfit based out of Cincinnati! From there I gained a wealth of knowledge and a part of me that would always love this industry.
During the next 17 years I worked with a few other lawn companies ranging from “mom and pop” businesses to some of the industry giants of today. My job responsibilities included various positions such as sales, production, technical, as well as management and upper management. Additionally, I have also worked in management positions with several Fortune 500 companies to help further my management skills.
My family has been an integral part of the success of Dreamscapes Unlimited since its inception in 1997. My wife, Jodie, and our 5 sons have been the foundation upon which our success has been built. Since 1997 Jodie has gone back to school and obtained B.A. and M.A. degrees.
I also furthered my education studying Turf Sciences and Landscape Management at Cincinnati State College. I have held a Custom Application business license with the Ohio Department of Agriculture for over 24 years.
Today with our business still growing and our customer retention rate exceeding 96% annually I am thrilled to say we don’t have to be the biggest but, we can strive to be the best.
We look forward to each new day and each new client!
How many years have you been in landscaping business, and what inspired you to get started?
Overall I have been in the green industry for 40 years. I began mowing numerous lawns at about 10 years of age within our neighborhood and landscaped several new homes my family purchased then began with a professional company at the age of 14 I really just enjoyed being outdoors and seeing results of my labor.
How does your work stand out from other lawn service companies in the area?
Several companies in our industry do exceptional work, however; so many of them are neglectful when it comes to communicating with customers. Dreamscapes Unlimited LLC on the other hand is a very responsive company and we will contact clients the same day if possible whether they contacted us via email, website or phone call, we try and get back with them immediately. Listening to their concerns and or project details and communicating with them on a very professional level on top of superior work quality and maintaining such high standards within our company make us stand out.
What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
Check to be sure that they are properly insured and licensed and have workers compensation insurance if they employ any employees. All professional contractors should be able to provide you with proof of this, you should also consider checking some sources such as The BBB and Angie's List as most contractors will at least have reviews about them listed here, remember to consider though the number of clients a contractor may deal with as every review may not be perfect.
What do you like most about the lawn care industry?
Really enjoy meeting with new prospects and clients and working with them to achieve beyond their expectations the services that they are seeking. Also I enjoy all the equipment that we get to use and feel the value of helping to keep our outdoor spaces and environment maintained.
What areas do you mainly service?
Generally we provide services around Cincinnati, Ohio and work about 50 mile radius from our main location in Bethel, Ohio
