Oakley’s & Squared Away
It’s no secret that teaming up with others can make a project or business more successful.
This is especially true in the experience of Jeff Oakley, Hunter Magness and Chad McClain. These three successful 405 businessmen have combined forces to create a business model that will enhance the experience of both companies clientele.
Squared Away Lawns is a proud industry leader in the Oklahoma City Metro. The company was founded in the spring of 2009 out of a dream to provide an increased level of professional landscape installation and maintenance services. They have managed to grow throughout the years by exceeding their customers expectations in both quality of service and customer support.
The company is departmentalized to provide services in turf management, landscape / hardscape design and installation, irrigation installation and repair, turf and landscape maintenance and snow and ice mitigation.
“Chad and Hunter believe that with the decades of experience of Jeff Oakley in the Oklahoma City landscaping market, with the combined skills of the ownership and staff at Squared Away Lawns, a more capable and versatile landscaping company has been created.”
“Hunter and Chad were looking for a way to expand their business, and I was looking to ease my way out,” Oakley said. “Our core values are exactly the same – honesty, integrity and relationships. It’s the perfect fit.”
“Our core values are exactly the same – honesty, integrity and relationships. It’s the perfect fit.”
These values appealed strongly to Oakley, and when he sought to slow down his own lawn and landscape business after 33 years of success, he turned to McClain and Magness as partners to be sure his clients continue to be served in the manner of which they are accustomed.
That longevity is something Oakley can relate to, having maintained relationships with his clients for 20-25 years in some cases.
“I enjoy the business, but the best part of this career has been my customers,”he said.
Oakley will still be involved in taking calls from his clients and assisting with the transition. It is the expectation, of the company, that all customers will be extremely satisfied.
“Squared Away does an incredible job of not just mowing, but also maintaining all aspects of our yard,” said one client. “From flowerbed maintenance to weed prevention/seasonal applications, they really do keep our yard looking perfect. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a good full-spectrum lawn care service company.”
The locally owned companies of Oakley’s and Squared Away Lawns coming together as one will undoubtedly be better together.
