West Bay Landscape?
In 1983, West Bay Landscape was founded on the key principles of perpetual honesty, taking responsibility, and delivering consistent services by college friends Ron Sikkema and Ron Leunk. From its humble beginnings to today, West Bay has created an atmosphere where employees and clients alike enjoy productive, long-term relationships.
“We’re really in the people business. Each and every day we’re grateful that our team chooses to work with us,” says Sikkema. “We strive to create an environment that uplifts and supports the lives of our work family.” The tradition of seeking and retaining the best employees with the deepest knowledge, broadest experience, and steadfast dedication to the green industry is evident in West Bay’s low turnover rate. They offer extensive personnel benefits, in-house continuing education via West Bay University, and ongoing industry training to empower employees’ decisions every day.
“We have the best management team in the business who deliver consistent services with honesty and integrity,” adds Leunk. “This manifests in our high retention rate of all contract work. We’re hands-on owners where our clients can pick up the phone and talk to us at any time. We personally inspect our properties and take pride in delivering the best.” Our state-of-the-art facilities and equipment allow us to perform each task with expert precision in the field.
