BACKGROUNDFormerly Gary's Garden Center, Rustic View Home and Gardens. is Lynchburg's best garden center and nursery. This new garden center provides customers with 50 years of combined experience: from Gary’s Garden Center, opened in 1993 by Gary Garner and son Nelson as one greenhouse and grown into what you see today; and from CLC, which started in 2001 with two brothers and a push mower and has now grown to a full-service landscaping company with 25 team members.After purchasing the Garden Center, it was time to scale the business both in size and scope. 828 was brought in to design a new website for both businesses, optimize them for SEO, and kickoff digital marketing campaigns to build traffic and generate more leads and calls.
- The Garden Center receives an average of 100 phone calls per month from online listings
- Their new website shows up more than 1,000 times per month in Google searches, 90% of which do not have their name.
- Their optimized Google My Business listing generates nearly 3,000 views and shows up in more than 1,000 searches per month
- Rustic View carries a perfect 5-Star Rating in Google Reviews and Facebook Reviews after having zero reviews prior.
- Facebook has already grown to more than 1,500 followers
It was important for us to honor what was done with Gary's Garden Center, while building our own brand. We have a strong desire to share our years of knowledge and passion for landscaping with a wider clientele, and 828 Marketing and Web was the perfect partner to help us expand our market. - Owner Chris Templeton
