GREEN MAGIC LANDSCAPING
Owners: Larry and Carita Koen
“If your property is looking tragic, don’t panic. Call Green Magic.” This is the call to action by the husband-and-wife team of Larry and Carita Koen, owners of Green Magic Landscaping.
The company does more than lawn maintenance and landscaping. Services range from shrub and tree removal to land clearing to storm-related cleanup. Serving residential and commercial customers in five south Alabama counties, the company also markets to real estate investors, and property and project managers. The Koens have won several contracts with the City of Mobile, helping alleviate blight and keeping parks pristine.
In this competitive environment, one challenge addressed recently is how to price projects quickly. To make it easier, potential customers can fill out an online form and upload video from their cell phone.
In addition to a savvy website, the company is growing its customer base through social media and community involvement.
