The Advantages of Buying from a Landscape Center

Hardscape

 by Jason Sensenig (Sales Associate, Landscape Center Manager)

When it comes to picking out product for your hardscape project, you of course want to shop around to see what all product is “out there.” A wise person will do his research before making a larger investment like that.

Today, most people do research online. This can be very helpful! I also do a lot of research online before I make a purchase…especially a purchase of any size. When a consumer searches “pavers” or “wall block” online, there are several large stores that come to the top of the search engine. I will not mention the names of these stores, but they are a great place to go if you are looking for lumber, building materials, plumbing supplies, etc. But when it comes to hardscape products, there are some disadvantages to going to that type of store. Below are 5 advantages of buying hardscape products at a landscape center, such as Tussey Mountain Mulch Landscape Center, over, well… stores that sell landscape products that aren’t landscape centers!

  1. Product availability: We keep a large inventory of pavers, retaining wall, edging, steppers, and much more! All these products come in different colors and styles. Those other stores may not have the options, or quantity.
  2. Customer service: At Tussey Mountain Mulch Landscape Center, you are more than just “another customer.” We love seeing repeat customers, learning to know you, and simply being a friend to you.
  3. Knowledge / education: Our staff is educated in the landscape industry. Our employees attend events / seminars that are geared specifically to the landscape industry. We are not only educated in the product we carry, but can also educate you in the installation process. We even offer FREE Hardscape Seminars for you! (you can see a schedule of seminars on our website: www.TusseyMtnMulch.com)
  4. Consistency: If only I got $10 for every customer that comes through our doors, carrying a paver or wall block from “one of those stores”, looking to match it, I would be rich! While every hardscape company has the potential to discontinue product that doesn’t move, the chances of that happening are a lot less if you buy from a quality company like EP Henry or Techo-Bloc. Most of the products that we sell have been on the market for years. Oh…and if you are looking to match something that you got elsewhere, we probably will not be able to match it exactly, but we might have something close… somewhat.
  5. Quality: Not much to say about this point. Simply said, there is no comparison between the quality of product.

So before you make the decision to make that hardscape purchase, think twice. Cheaper isn’t always better. Give us the opportunity to help you make wise a decision. A decision that you won’t regret in a few years.
