Meet J.Sellars Landscaping & Tree Surgery - Dublin

James Sellars, owner of J.Sellars Landscaping based in Balbriggan Dublin talks about his passion for his work and tips for success.


We had the opportunity to chat with James Sellars, owner of J. Sellars Landscaping, to learn more about his passion for his trade and his business. With over 23 years of experience in the industry, James is dedicated to providing quality and satisfaction to his clients. Here's what he had to say:


Q: What inspired you to become a landscaper, James?

A: I always had a passion for the outdoors and nature. After completing a horticulture course, I realized that landscaping was the perfect way to combine my love for nature with my creative skills.


Q: What type of projects do you work on?

A: At J. Sellars Landscaping, we do it all, from lawn turf and raised beds to clean-ups, tree surgery, fencing, power washing, lawn scarifying, and regular maintenance. 

To be honest,  I love all of the work we take on. Seeing the transformation of a garden from a blank canvas to a beautiful, functional space is very rewarding. I take great pride in my work and I am always happy to see my clients delighted with the end result.


Q: How do you approach a job to ensure customer satisfaction?

A: Customer satisfaction is my top priority. I work closely with clients at the quote stage, and during the job, and I'm always available to answer any questions upon completion. I want to make sure that my clients are happy with the end result, and I strive to exceed their expectations.


Q: Can you tell us about a project that sticks out in your mind?

A: Every project is special to me because it's an opportunity to create something beautiful, but I do remember a particular project where we transformed a neglected yard into a stunning outdoor living space. It was so satisfying to see the joy on the client's faces when they saw the finished product. That's what it's all about - putting smiles back on people's faces.


Q: What is the most important lesson you have learned in your career so far?

A: Always do your very best. You never know who's watching or who may be interested in hiring you for future projects. Reputation is everything in this industry, and I want to make sure that I'm known for doing quality work.


Q: How did you manage to stay afloat during the recession?

A: I always believed in myself and my business. I knew that people would always want work done in their gardens, even during tough economic times. I also made sure to be competitive with my pricing and provide excellent customer service to stand out from the competition.


Q: What advice would you give to someone starting out in the trade?

A: Believe in yourself and learn as much as you can from books and online resources. This is a constantly evolving industry, and you need to stay up to date with the latest trends and techniques.


Q: How has Onlinetradesmen helped your business?

A: Onlinetradesmen has been a valuable resource for me over the past 10 years. It's helped me connect with new clients and find available work in my area. I'm grateful that their platform is there to help me grow my business.


Q: Is there anything else we should know about you?

A: I'm a registered landscaping contractor for Age Action Ireland, and I provide safe, reasonably priced work for the older generation. It's important to me to give back to my community and help those in need.
