Benchmark Landscape Construction was founded in 1984 to provide landscape installation services to San Diego's homebuilders. In the early days, we estimated projects on a kitchen table in Santee and stored our equipment in a garage in Tierrasanta. From the very beginning, Benchmark was focused on delivering quality landscaping and exceptional service. Our goal was to build a reputation based on high quality workmanship, value and completing the job on time. We also wanted Benchmark Landscape Construction to be a great place to work - providing good wages and opportunities for all employees.
As we grew, we recognized the importance and value to providing landscape maintenance services to our existing clients as well. Quality landscape installation and maintenance went hand in hand.
Benchmark Landscape Construction grew rapidly during the 1980s. The economy was great and the home building industry was booming. Our company had succeeded in making a name for itself as a leading contractor for installing and maintaining Model Home landscaping.
In the early 1990s, the company ownership structure changed and the name changed to Benchmark Landscape. The economy was not good then. "Stay alive until '95" was the industry saying of the day. As a team, we became more organized and efficient at what we did. We did manage to survive our first recession. This fine-tuning of operations helped prepare us for the second half of the '90s - another growth period for Benchmark.
In 1999, Benchmark moved into our new home, an 18,000 square foot professional industrial facility on1.5 acres in Poway. The business plan all along was to focus on San Diego County, with the mission to be San Diego's premier commericial landscape contracting firm.
As the company continued to grow, the need for more facility space was evident. Benchmark had always planned to effectively service San Diego from multiple locations. Commute time for employees, drive time for crews and fuel costs had been escalating.
The company opened a 1.1 acre yard in San Marcos in 2005 to service North County as well as a 1.3 acre Spring Valley yard in 2007 to service South County. Benchmark Landscape is positioned to service its customers better than ever today.
Our Vision is to set the standard for landscape contracting in San Diego. After more than two decades of providing quality maintenance and installation services, the company continues to build upon its reputation for quality, service and value. – less–ZoomInfo
