Property managers often find themselves in a Goldilocks predicament when vetting commercial landscaping and snow & ice removal companies. You’re searching for a partner that’s not so large that you get lost in the shuffle, and you’re seeking a firm that’s not too small to deliver on its promises to maintain your property to your standards. You need a commercial landscaping and snow removal contractor that’s “just right” — a partner that can create and maintain a beautiful, safe environment for your customers, employees, residents, and guests.

That’s where Schill Grounds Management — your local, growing commercial grounds care and snow removal contractor — enters the story. Schill provides landscaping maintenance, snow & ice removal, and landscape enhancement services for commercial clients in an expanding number of locations across Ohio and Canada. For more than 30 years our trained, uniformed staff of accredited professionals has been using their grounds management and snow & ice removal expertise to take excellent care of our client’s properties, including apartments, retail centers, condos/HOAs, and more. We’re proactive and well-equipped to tackle the toughest landscaping and snow challenges our region has to offer.

Schill vs. National Landscaping Companies

Nobody knows the nuances of the green and white industries in Ohio and Ontario better than the Schill team. Our experience, credentials, and professional involvement are unmatched in our markets.

Choosing a big-name, national landscaping or facility services provider may seem like a solid bet, and these firms typically present themselves as an affordable option, but you often get what you pay for. National companies often lack on-the-ground knowledge and expertise that your regional provider offers. Plus, it’s not uncommon to experience a revolving door of account managers and crew members working on your property.

At Schill, the C.A.R.E. commitment is our promise to our clients. C.A.R.E. stands for Consistency, Accessibility, Reliability, and Expertise. Our C.A.R.E. commitment ensures you’ll be assigned a dedicated Client Care Specialist and Operations Manager to discuss your expectations and develop a landscaping and snow removal plan that fits your requirements, goals, and budget. As part of our promise, we always check in when we’re on-site, we schedule regular site visits to stay on top of your property’s needs and address concerns upfront, and we conduct end-of-season surveys to get your feedback and find ways to improve our partnership.

Our goal is to be your long-term, year-round service provider. As members of your community, we care.

Schill vs. Mom-and-Pop Landscaping Companies

Hundreds of landscape and snow companies come and go every year, but Schill is here to stay as a market leader after three decades. How? Our investment in people, professionalism, and technology.

Labor is a notoriously difficult challenge in our industry and we ensure we’re staffed up every season by being a great place to work, having an on-staff HR team, and committing to professional development. Many times, small landscape and snow companies struggle to keep their teams full season after season, which may lead to gaps in service on your property.

Our company and team members are certified through the Accredited Snow Contractor Association (ASCA) and Snow and Ice Management Association (SIMA), plus we’re members of the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP), the Ohio Landscape Association, and many other organizations. You can frequently find our team members participating in continuing education opportunities through our involvement in associations and attendance at industry-leading conferences and trade shows.

Through these opportunities, the Schill team hones our systems, including abiding by industry quality standards and best practices, and invests in the best software and fleet and commercial-grade equipment available in the industry. Doing so allows us to drive out waste, delivering more value to our clients through efficient operations and proactive communication. You can also rest assured that our team members will show up with the materials needed to service your property, in uniform with proper safety gear. We know we play an important part in reflecting your property’s commitment to cleanliness and professionalism.

We’re also properly insured for both commercial landscaping and snow removal. Unfortunately, you can’t say the same for all other contractors in the market. Sometimes newer, smaller companies don’t realize the potential risk of the work they do and neglect to carry the correct type of insurance. Always request to see proof of insurance and be sure to ask a lot of questions and watch out for red flags before hiring any contractor.

You have many options when it comes to choosing a commercial landscape and snow & ice management firm in Ohio and Ontario. As a local, growing landscape and snow company, Schill Grounds Management is your “just right” provider, capable of delivering the level of expertise and care you can’t always get from the big guys and the professionalism that may be lacking from the mom-and-pop operators.
