Since many sodding companies offer several different types of installation and maintenance services, they rely on employees with varying types of skills to ensure that clients get the lawn and turf options that they want.
Customers will have the most contact with the installation and yard maintenance experts who come to their homes with rolls of grass. Depending on their levels of experience, these employees could know quite a bit about growing plants, designing landscapes, and keeping invasive species out of gardens. Knowing how to maintain a healthy lawn and garden helps these workers keep customers happy with beautiful yards.
Clients also rely on customer service reps to give them information about turf and set up appointments. These company representatives often have backgrounds in communications that gives them the skills to provide accurate, straight-forward information about the types of grasses that the sod company sells, as well as the maintenance services they offer.
Sodding service and installation companies rely on managers that can form agreements with wholesalers. Wholesalers purchase large amounts of Bermuda, Centipede, and various grasses from farmers who grow the plants from seed. They then sell bulk orders of the turf to retail companies. This helps the retailer keep prices low, without limiting the colors and lengths of grass that they sell.
The managers might also need to make connections with wholesale companies that sell yard maintenance products, such as fertilizers, spades, and lawnmowers. Having access to low-cost options allows the company to maintain beautiful plants, by keeping them at the optimal length and providing healthy nutrients to encourage their growth.
