Planting a Seed
Ayeisha Garza grew up in the small fishing town of McClellanville, South Carolina. As a young girl she held aspirations of becoming a successful business owner. Though the business idea had not yet been uncovered, business was embedded in her blood. Subsequently, joining the Army positioned her onto fertile ground.
Like many residents of Killeen, Texas, living the life of a soldier brought her to the Killeen/Fort Hood area. The military town is where she found the opportunity to support her husband’s, George Garza, passion for landscaping. Being the supportive wife and mother she is, Ayeisha took her ambition and paired it with faith and leaped! Garza believes stepping out on faith is the first step to success. That is exactly what she did without looking back! Ayeisha now had the necessary seed to begin her first of many business endeavor.
Water, Watch, and Wait
Garza knew the seed alone was not going to grow; she had to water it. However, she was not sure of the tools needed to be successful in the business of landscaping. From 2014 to 2017, the establishment of the business went through an array of trial and error situations. Ayeisha wanted the business to be in a class of its own while simultaneously providing a high level of service to all their customers.
With the help of a few mentors, the Garza family poured into the business by listening, sacrificing, and being uncomfortable. During this growing season, the Garza’s learned about the nature of landscaping, and the necessary skills for running a small business. They rooted their work in their mission statement of “Cleaning up CTX one property at a time.” As a result, they have been able to expand services.
Ayeisha knew hard work was going to pay off in time. She and her crew had to stay the course to see the fruits of their labor. Garza stated, “We take pride in our work and seeing our customers happy is worth every minute of work that we put in.”
