It all started in 2009 when the economy took a down turn and Aaron Cochran, who was working for a landscape restoration company, was let go. At the age of 24, Aaron decided it was time to follow his dream of going into business for himself. He went to his father (Ron Cochran), told him he was going to start a business and asked to borrow a lawn mower and some basic hand tools. Aaron immediately got to work maintaining lawns for people he knew, friends, family, and family of friends. Slowly he started doing small repair and installation projects gaining knowledge with each success and failure along the way. Aaron eventually had enough business that he started looking for larger projects that would require a license. The rest is history! Aaron applied for his contractor’s license and soon after Landscapes by Cochran Inc. was born!
Inspired by everything his clients told him about the frustrations with the industry, Aaron wanted to create a landscape business like no other – one that would offer the best finished product and customer service ever. He began to develop a business culture that would correct them all. Communication, punctuality, quality and integrity would be his business motto. His key factors to success include:
· Listening to the client
· Being on time
· Delivering a quality product that will gets the next referral.
· Conducting business with integrity. If you do not have a name people can trust, then you have nothing.
· Taking care of the client -- always. Not all profit is money. Treating someone fairly and honestly will reward you far more with time.
Through loyalty to clients, employees and vendors, Landscapes by Cochran is what it is today – an award-winning, highly-rated, multi-service landscape business.
