We Love To Compete

In over 20 years in the Landscape Industry, a lot of hard work, learning from successes and mistakes, the economic downturns, we at Villa Landscape Products love this industry. We face the same challenges our valued customers face every day.  We all beat the bushes daily for opportunities, scour over bids, wine and dine our clients, provide a fair price, all in hopes of the opportunity to provide our services. If we are lucky enough, we sign a contract, purchase materials, schedule labor, and complete the job hoping it all goes as planned. If it all falls into place we send off our billings, and then the long wait to be paid. This is our business, it may not be the toughest business, but it is challenging, and the competition is fierce.

We love Competition, it drives us to be a little better every day. It’s a pride in better products, lower prices, same day deliveries, day after day. You name it, if it makes us a better supplier to our customers “We are in”. We welcome good old head to head competition, above board, our product, our service, our Villa way of business. Bring it on, and they do, we have Deep Root, Root Solutions, NDS to name a few, and we go at it hard, but fair. We win some, and ship an order, and they win some, yes we hate to lose, and work hard to get the next one. Fair and healthy competition, again we are in.

Have to share with you the latest sales tactics from another vendor, won’t tarnish the word competitor, because we respect the above board competition. Stooping to a new low this vendor has used our name in a phony web site, posing as a “consumer advocate” to protect the taxpayer. While filled with slanderous misstatements, laughable misspellings, and void of facts, still just blown away at the depths some people will go. While I am sure he has lost plenty of jobs to us and others, how about just working harder on your prices, hustle for your customers, maybe buy them a bottle of wine once in a while. We could spend a ton of time and energy pointing out the fact the thier panel is smaller than the 2’ they claim, or doesn’t meet the 90 degree rib spec, the numerous law suit after law suit etc.

 At Villa Landscape Products we focus first on our customers, delivering quality products, at great value daily.  This is our formula for success, proven for over 20 years, dedicated to being a small part of our customer’s successes. We take great pride in every one of our over 300 customers in California alone, we have 4 of the country’s largest firms who have been with us from our beginning.

               Can we do it better than our competition? Yes we can, and embrace the challenge! Please contact us for more product information, price quotes, or an occasional same day delivery to help you out of a jam. That’s how we get after it every day!  WE COMPETE

               We greatly appreciate your comments and any suggestions to help us better serve our customers. For now, we will let that vendor play in the mud,” the only thing we want in the dirt, is our Villa Root Barrier products. Let’s get after it”

Current News

The expansion continues! Happy to announce we are close to introducing our new product lines as testing is complete. We are refining the manufacturing on the new products and are excited about the additions. There has been a great growth in new projects in the Western states and our expansion into the entire country has been well received. Opening up new distribution channels has been a long term goal and we are excited about the new partnerships. We have also dipped into the retail market after a lot of research and trial and error with our panel in a bag line. This product is for homeowners, available in retail stores after a great run on our web site.

We have added additional sales staff, more to the warehouse and delivery team as well.

The additional product lines, and our goal to have the products our customers need, available on demand, has us on the search for a larger building or a new branch. Stay tuned!

Please remember our sales and marketing staff are in the field providing presentations to architects, municipalities and contractors. Give us a call any time if we can be of help in the submittal and approval process.

Here are a few of the items and quantities successfully shipped and installed throughout Southern California.   Grasspave2 and Gravelpave by ISI continues to fly out the door; there has been over 14,000 square feet supplied, along with over 8000 square feet of gravelpave2.  As for the 24” Villa polyethylene roll, we have shipped out to a variety of projects totaling 46,000 lineal feet, and slightly less of our 18” size roll.  As always the Villa dual purpose 24” x 24” panels are our best mover with 67,242 lineal feet. There has also been a growing demand for our 36” x 24” as well.

Please contact Villa for a Dealer nearby stocking Villa ethylene rolls and our popular root barrier panels. Don’t be fooled by the competition, our panels are a true 24” and can be manufactures at any length desired.

We are again always grateful to our longstanding customers, after 20 years we continue to pride ourselves on our quality products and second to none service.

Thanks again the Villa staff.
