Contact Us

Working with Sam Gembel and the Atlas crew was an incredible experience. Sam came out to our property then made recommendations based on their other customer experiences. We appreciated his expertise and dedication to the details of our project. Once the project kicked off the entire team stayed in constant contact with us and were amazing at every step. Any questions we had they answered quickly and made sure we knew exactly what was going on. They stayed on timeline and did an incredible job with every detail. The entire team displayed incredible craftsmanship and delivered the backyard of our dreams. I can not say enough good things about the entire Atlas Team.

What's Going On At Atlas

The Atlas Mission

What a year 2022 was for the Atlas Team! We closed out the year at nearly a 25% growth in annual sales over 2021. More importantly, we experienced immeasurable personal growth in our Team and culture. As many organizations around the country are choosing to stay stagnant in growth due to insufficient staff, we are looking at growth opportunities as our Team continues to grow and our retention rate has consistently risen in the last 3 years! Humbly said and blessed INDEED!

We have continued to look at ways to become more efficient with our service providings and route density and are putting a laser focus on specialized training so that our Team Members are delivering only the highest level of white-gloves services for our premium clients.

Capacity Changes for the year - We are adding additional crews for 2023 to keep up with commercial demand for our maintenance services!

Leadership structure changes - We have leveled up one of our lead technicians from our irrigation service and installation crews to take over leadership of the department. This has always run as a department within a department since our inception, but due to client demand, and guidance needed for our growing team, we know this will be a great move to continue to increase the internal and external capacity our clients and team desires!

What can you do to help us achieve our mission of creating beauty and value for our client's homes and businesses through our passion and talents? We are glad you asked! If you know somebody that would be a good fit for our growing team - Send them our way! Own or manage a commercial property or community? Let us provide you with a custom tailored maintenance package to see what kind of value we can add for you!

We look forward to another incredible year of serving our clients. We LOVE our jobs and are blessed to get to do what we love every single day!
