Matt Freedman, the owner of Beach Landscaping, is originally from the Washington, D.C. area. He and his father, Bob Freedman, have been running their landscaping and hardscaping business together in Myrtle Beach for the past twenty years.
The two learned their profession hands-on, on the job. Since those early days, Matt has become an expert in plants and landscaping— investing in formal education, attending classes, and logging hours in the study of plant identification, pesticide application, and weed identification and control.
Beach Landscaping has gleaned area accolades as a result of their strong work ethic, attention to detail, and professionalism.
“One of the reasons why we were able to get business from the onset was that we called people back and followed through with what we said we were going to do,” Matt says. “It was basically our customer service, and we stick with that to this day.
“We maintain as much communication with our clients as we can, and have a lot of different avenues and infrastructure in place so that when people call, they have access to someone on our team who is there for them, to listen and assist them quickly and easily. It’s huge for people that we’re here and we’re accountable for what we provide.”
“We have a lot of long-term customers— we’ve learned what they want, and we take care of them,” he adds. “Additionally, our team is pretty stable which helps make us more effective at customer service because we are familiar working with one another and can deliver consistency. My wife of thirteen years, Tracy, works with us too, and she’s a big part of helping to make everything run smoothly.”
Beach Landscaping offers numerous services for both businesses and residences along the Grand Strand: regular lawn mowing and maintenance like resodding and lawn repair; bed design, planting and maintenance; full landscape design; and irrigation installation. They also cover spring and fall cleanup, overturn soil, give recommendations on what plants would thrive in specific areas of your yard, and conduct soil testing and treatment for lawns that need more perk.
