Growth Spurts is a Christian based family owned and operated company since 2000.
Owner, Bill Baltes attended Iowa State University in Ames Iowa and has been in the landscape business for over 25 years getting his start at a local nursery down the street from his house in high school. He has worked on several local projects that include: AutoZone Park, FedEx World headquarters & FedEx Baily Station. Although these projects boast large scale commercial applications, Growth Spurts is mainly a high end residential focused company.
I decided the best way to do that was to develop a team of skilled members who could handle anything from irrigation systems and landscape planting to concrete work as well as brick, stone work, swimming pools, outdoor lighting and the list goes on.”
"I found it was easier to do the work in house so I could avoid having several contractors involved in a project. It is easier to schedule the work, finish in a timely manner and better for the customer to only have to deal with one contractor instead of multiple ones. It just made sense. I know we have achieved this goal since most of our work is now by referral.”
Great Company: I found the staff at Growth Spurts to be very professional and really know how to do many things relating to landscaping.
Highly Recommended: I would recommend this company to anyone. Great service, friendly and very professional!!! Thank you so much Growth Spurts!
Wonderful Landscaping: I can’t say enough positive things about Growth Spurts Landscape. They installed (and maintain) my whole yard irrigation system, have done some wonderful re-landscaping of my yard and helped me resolve a drainage issue. They show up on time, work hard and are very professional. I highly recommend them.
Amazed at the Transformation: We’ve used Growth Spurts Landscape for a variety of projects and have been amazed at the transformation of our outdoor spaces every time. Bill and his dedicated team have installed an irrigation system, tackled drainage issues, completed numerous landscaping projects and have designed and constructed a gorgeous pool, outdoor kitchen and screened porch. The prices were very reasonable, the quality of work was outstanding and each project was completed within the allotted time frame. We look forward to working with Growth Spurts on future projects and regularly recommend them to friends and neighbors.
Extremely Impressed: My name is Scott Sellers and I own Scott’s Perfect Lawns, LLC. We are a full service residential and commercial lawn maintenance company. Bill Baltes and I met in 2004 working for an upscale custom home builder. Bill’s company would design and install the landscape and irrigation on the new homes and my company would maintain the property until it was sold. Then the builder would refer my company to maintain the property for the new homeowner. I have maintained many of these properties over the years. I have never had a single customer complain about the work or follow up they have received from Growth Spurts! Bill has followed up with all of these customers until they were completely satisfied and they use him now for any new installations they may need. I have been extremely impressed with the relationship that Bill has developed with these clients and they have referred he and I a lot of business! It is nice to deal with a company that does what they say they are going to and follows up with the customer. I have referred Bill to all of my customers who needed landscaping and he has never failed to live up to mine or the customers’ expectations! If you need landscaping, irrigation or a pool, look no further! Growth Spurts is the company to use!
