Making it right from the start with Apex Landscaping

Apex Landscaping is helping Golden residents make their homes more beautiful.

Being creative and working with customers to give them exactly what they want has taken Apex Landscaping to new heights in the company’s second year.

The business, which is owned and operated by Carrie and Kelsey Korpiniski, gives people the chance to create their dream project.

Kelsey began landscaping in 2001 and has an artistic side which comes through in the work the company does according to Carrie.

“The construction side of our company is a really good outlet. Building and creating things,” she said.

During his time working in the industry Kelsey has spent time working in lawn care, construction and then landscaping.

The business has been doing very well since starting up in 2011.

“The word of mouth gets around,” he said. Kelsey has recently became certified as an irrigation technician to be able to provide even more services to the local customers.

“With a landscaping company we try to fill an all-in-one service. Other companies may specialize in one area but we want to be the lawn care, construction, irrigation and much more,” Kelsey said.

Helping people get exactly what they are looking for is very important to the owners of Apex.

“Almost every job that I have done I work with the homeowner to get what they want. Most of the time they don’t quite know exactly what they want, so it is easy to help them design something,” Kelsey said. He added he uses a software program to develop a 3-D image where he can produce a design and make adjustments according to the customers’ needs.

“I am always open to what is pleasing to the customer. If you do landscaping it is fairly permanent and you want to make sure it is done right. I want to make the customer happy. That is the key for me,” he said.

The company provides a wide range of construction landscaping services, including flagstone patios, retaining walls, and full yard construction.

They also provide lawn care, irrigation, and snow removal.

Carrie went through the Community Futures program for starting the business.

This included training in writing a business plan, as well as training in a variety of areas applicable to starting and running a business. She appreciated all of the wonderful training and mentoring that she received in the program.
