Landscaping done right.
We know – we use him!
Have you ever noticed how spectacular the landscaping at Sunset Credit Union looks?
Would you like your yard to be this nice – and without having to do all the hard work? Then you need to talk to Sunset Business Member, David Meyers who owns Meyers Landscape Maintenance, Inc. David specializes in residential and commercial landscaping.
For over 20 years, David has been beautifying yards in Cedar Mill, Beaverton and the surrounding areas. After making a deposit at the credit union recently, we got to find out a bit more about our dependable and hardworking landscape artist.
Sunset: So how did you get into this line of work?
David Meyers: I started working for my dad's landscaping business when I was in high school. Then my brother and his friend started their own landscaping business and I worked with them. I finally decided to start my own business and have been doing it ever since.
Sunset: What do you like about the work?
DM: I enjoy the outdoors – especially when it's nice. It really makes me proud to see the way a home or business looks after I get done working on it. Once I get a place looking really nice, it's just a matter of doing some maintenance and the yard always looks stunning.
Sunset: What's one mistake most homeowners make when it comes to their yard?
DM: I tell people the most important thing they should do is be consistent with their lawn. If you want a healthy and vibrant lawn, you need to mow it every week and water properly. Unless these two things are done consistently, adding fertilizer or weed killers is pointless.
Sunset: What's your most challenging yard right now?
DM: I'm working on a property that's a half-acre with most of it covered in Fir trees which haven't been maintained in over three years. It's a forestry mess and I've got a long way to go to get it up the standard I know it can look.
Sunset: What business advice would you give to anyone starting a business like yours?
DM: Whether it's landscaping or anything else, make sure it's something you love doing. I really like looking at my finished work which makes me enjoy doing what I do.
Sunset: Why did you choose Sunset Credit Union for your Business and Personal accounts?
DM: Because it's great to see the friendly faces here. My sister, who used to work at Sunset and happens to be married to Judy Makela's nephew, got me started with Sunset over 17 years ago. I've been an extremely satisfied and happy member ever since.
Sunset: So what special offer do you want to make to Sunset members?
DM: I want to introduce my services to them and show what kind of improvements I can do for their yard. I'd like to give them a 10% discount off of leaf cleanup or winter fertilizing. The winter months are important to keep your yard free of debris and it needs the proper fertilizer to survive and be strong come springtime.
To receive your Sunset Member discount of 10% off leaf cleanup or winter fertilizing, contact David Meyers directly at 503.277.8963. Be sure to tell him you're a Sunset Member.
Hurry – his offer is good until October 31, 2012.
