How does a small, family-owned business evolve into a success? “Hard work, quality, and making customer service number one,” says Todd Metzler, co-owner of Maple 85.

Todd and his wife, Kris, enjoy hearing feedback from their happy customers. “Many people have told us, ‘We used to have to go somewhere else to get what we need, but now we can come here.’”

The convenient location of Maple 85 isn’t the only reason this company continues to rake in award after award—the Metzlers insist on quality products and a wide variety of options from which customers can choose.

Contractors and homeowners alike appreciate the upfront pricing on Maple 85’s website and the convenience of the two locations—the newly opened premium landscape rock center greatly expanded Maple 85’s offerings.

Running a successful, locally-owned family business is “a privilege,” says Todd. The Metzlers are happy to be a part of the Omaha community, and their customers are happy to have a trusted source for a huge selection of mulch and rock.

As Maple 85 Premium Landscape Mulch Center nears its 20th anniversary, much of its business comes from repeat customers and personal referrals, says president Kris Metzler, who owns the landscape distribution company with husband Todd.

“It’s our customer service. We are very attention-to-detail and we try to make the process as efficient as possible,” she says. The experienced, all-woman office staff is responsible for making a good first impression and providing the kind of care that builds productive and long-lasting relationships with customers, she adds. In turn, they are supported by a warm, family atmosphere with owners who don’t hesitate to pitch in when needed and aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty—literally.

Maple 85 provides top-quality mulch and river rock, aggregates, top soil, fill dirt, and Nebraska compost to residential and commercial clients. Customers can also purchase accessories such as landscape fabric and edging. During the winter months, the company provides salt and sand to contractors.

“We offer the most variety of mulch—eight different types and colors,” Metzler says.  “Most of our competitors offer three, maybe four.”

Another way the owners of Maple 85 distinguish their business from the competition is by offering the use of dump trailers for a minimal fee with any size purchase.

“We have different size trailers that we can match up with any size SUV or truck,” she says. “For those customers that don’t have a vehicle to pull a trailer, we can deliver the product to them.  Customer service is our number one priority!”

People searching for landscape mulch that suits the color of their houses should know that Maple 85 Premium Landscape Mulch Center offers the best selection in the area. “Our competitors only have two or three colors of mulch, but we have eight,” says owner Todd Metzler. In addition to mulch, Maple 85 offers a wide variety of soil, rock, and landscaping accessories at its clean, well-organized facility at 85th and Maple streets. Todd and co-owner Kris Metzler can calculate the correct amount of mulch, rock, or soil, a customer needs based on the dimensions of the area to be covered. Customers can also arrange for delivery of their purchase or rent one of Maple 85’s trailers to transport it themselves. “We’re the only ones in town that offer the trailers,” Kris notes. Maple 85 is a family-owned business that is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, and they have won Best of Omaha for the past two years. Photos of the company’s products can be viewed online.
