Florida Environmental Care was
established in 1987 as a landscape maintenance service. The company
grew steadily, concentrating on commercial accounts, and adding fertilizing
& pest control to its services. In 1999 we teamed up with Mark
Ballenger and John Schultz to add Irrigation and Arborcare to our
services. Florida Environmental Care is owned by Michael Mead, a Chartered
Engineer with 35 years experience of Project Management in the construction
industry. The company is managed by David "DJ" Overbeck, a Gulf War
veteran of the United States Marine Corps. He has many years of wide
ranging experience of the Green Industry in Florida, and is licensed
by the Florida State Department of Entomology. Mark Ballenger and
John Schultz are responsible for their own companies within the consortium,
but the overall integrated service is the responsibility of DJ Overbeck.
What we mean
We believe that in this industry,
as in most other fields, you get what you pay for. We have never set
out to be the lowest priced contractor, and we believe that discerning
customers recognise quality, and are prepared to pay for it. The "quality"
we offer is evident in many aspects of our business; for example,
we employ a full-time mechanic to ensure that our machinery is always
in top condition, and we always have standby equipment available -
from mowers to trucks - so you won't hear excuses about mechanical
breakdowns. Neither will you hear excuses in the summer about labor
shortages; our workers tend to stay with us, because we treat them
better, and do not lay them off in the winter. You will notice quality
in the appearance of our trucks and equipment, and in our employees'
appearance. They all wear uniform shirts, including our foremen, who
are identifiable by a different color. You will also notice quality
in our office procedures; we make a point of always being responsive
to your calls. Above all else, you will notice the quality of our
services; well trained employees and effective supervision will ensure
that you get the best landscape maintenance services available anywhere.
choose Integrated Services?
For customers and
property managers alike, the value of "one-stop shopping" can not
be over stressed. Suppose, for instance, you have separate contractors
for landscape maintenance, pest control, and irrigation, and you notice
an area of turf is going brown. Who do you call? With one company
responsible for all services, you make one call, and let them find
out if there's a watering deficiency, or a disease problem, or the
grass was cut too short! Less obvious, though, are the advantages
of co-ordination; for example, we are able to arrange for fertilizer
to be applied on the same day our crews cut the grass. That way, any
granules deposited on sidewalks will get blown off, avoiding staining
of the concrete. We can also arrange for the fertilizer to be watered
in at the correct time; no waiting for up to 7 days before watering!
And don't forget what must be done when you have new sod or plants
installed; you have to arrange for immediate and regular watering!
