wrb garden and design
Hard work. Detail. Affordable. These are the principals that govern WRB Garden and Design, a family business created by William R. Brown, and inherited by his son Bill Brown. Growing up in a military family on Fort Huachuca, Bill Brown always had an instinct for diligence, making him a stand out figure in the gardening and landscaping industry here in Cochise County.
WRB Garden and Design was created by Brown’s Father, Brown Sr., who desired a space to indulge in his military informed habits after retiring in 1980. From there, by word of mouth and continued hard work, the business grew. Eventually, Dr. William J. Prevatt, founder of New Frontier Animal Medical Center, learned of the incredible work being done by Brown Sr., and bridged a connection in business that eventually became a successful friendship. Ever since, WRB Garden and Design has been the exclusive contact in tending to New Frontier Animal Medical Center’s many lawns and landscaping needs. After Brown Sr.’ retirement from landscaping in 1998, his son Bill Brown became the primary owner of the WRB Garden and Design and for 20 years since, has been steadfast in maintaining his fathers work-ethic and commitment to quality.
However, it is not just a business that Brown works to maintain. At the heart of WRB Gardening and Design, is a true relationship between Brown and the client. Brown Sr., as a veteran, new the importance of keeping heart ahead of business. Thus the hard work went not into making money, but into creating unique and special products for his clients at an affordable price. “Honest days work, honest days pay,” Brown recalls of his father. This is what motivates and fuels Brown to keep pushing ahead in an industry that relies almost exclusively on word of
mouth. But this very work ethic is what has kept WRB Gardening and Design a force in the gardening and landscaping business and what keeps clients loyal and apart of the legacy.
New Frontier Animal Medical Center is one of those original clients that has become a very special part of the WRB legacy. “Those long term relationships that my dad started are the most special. I get to keep my dads legacy alive.” Family is what started WRB Gardening and Design and with every new client the family grows bigger and stronger. And at New Frontier Animal Medical Center Brown is regarded as apart of the family in return. The quality and dedication to incredible client care are harmonious beliefs between the two companies and together, they work endlessly to provide compassionate, quality and outstanding service.
