Drew Papke started out mowing lawns. Mowing, as anyone who has ever mowed knows, is difficult work, but Drew appreciated the opportunities his new business created. By simply showing up on time and paying exceptional attention to detail, Drew quickly turned his new lawncare company into one of the most popular in the Bismarck-Mandan area.
As All Seasons Outdoor grew, so too did the number of their services. Drew recognized two of these – irrigation and snow removal – as the ways in which he could create the greatest value for his clients. Having received professional training from both Rain Bird and Hunter Irrigation, and after creating hundreds of reliable, efficient and affordable sprinkler systems throughout the state of North Dakota, Drew wanted to focus solely on the art of irrigation.
Perhaps if Drew lived in Florida he could work in irrigation year-round. But as a pragmatic Midwesterner, he thought it reasonable to offer snow removal during the months that freeze water.
“Between my formal education and experience in irrigation system engineering, I’ve developed a skill set that other local companies just aren’t able to offer,” said Drew. “My partnership with two of the irrigation industry’s leading innovators means I stay apprised of every technological development in my field. I’ve worked for clients ranging from homeowners to industrial and commercial property managers, and even the City of Bismarck itself, so I’m poised to design the most effective irrigation system for a property of any size.
“The big push these days is efficiency. Water is becoming an increasingly scarce resource throughout much of the country, and water bills are only getting higher. That’s why All Seasons Outdoor’s irrigation systems are perfect for property owners and managers whether they’re concerned about the environment or just want to save a significant amount of money while keeping their grounds lush and green.
“We offer high-tech irrigation systems, which are connected to nearby weather stations and equipped with sensors so they automatically turn off whenever it rains. They also shut down the instant the temperature drops below freezing, which can prevent thousands of dollars in damage.
“I believe that anyone should be able to afford a great irrigation system. Our Good, Better, Best Program offers system upgrades and improvements priced as low as $199, so even if you’re a homeowner with a limited budget you can rest assured your lawn will always stay watered while you save money and conserve water.
“The snow removal side of our business follows the same philosophy: Everyone deserves access to the best service. When I first started out, I noticed that our area’s other snow removal providers typically prioritize their large commercial clients over homeowners. That meant people might have had to wait as long as 15 hours after a blizzard just to be able to leave their houses. That’s not acceptable, so I structured two separate snow removal divisions: one solely for our commercial routes, and another dedicated to homeowners. Thanks to that we always make sure snowfall creates the least inconvenience for our clients.
“We have the state of the art snow removal equipment we need to quickly and completely clear any property. Homeowners love our tractor-mounted snowblowers, which clear a residential driveway in under a minute and make so little noise they don’t even wake people up. Our equipment also evenly scatters snow, so you don’t have to look forward to large clumps of ice killing your grass when spring comes. And if you opt for our detail service, we’ll additionally clear off your sidewalk, front porch and doorstep. You’ll never have to pick up a snow shovel again!”
All Seasons Outdoor is the only locally owned and operated sprinkler provider you need in the Bismarck-Mandan area. Selecting the right system for your property can be daunting, especially when irrigation has become so technologically advanced, but a seasoned pro like Drew will put it in terms you can understand – and afford. And once your sprinklers have retired for the season, you can still benefit from Drew’s honest approach to his work by welcoming his team to come and free your driveway from the snow.
