After working for 12 years in Dallas and L.A. as a clothing designer and manufacturer, Nina Viviani was ready for a change — something equally creative that would take her back to her Oklahoma roots. Finding no manufacturing jobs in her home state, she knew she had to reinvent herself and turned to another passion: landscaping.
“The industries are very similar in that it’s about color, texture, balance — but the difference is now I’m working in the dirt!” said Viviani, who has 14 years experience in the industry and five years as owner of She-scapes Landscaping.
Located at 2716 Charleston Road in north Edmond, the company creates an atmosphere through landscaping that is functional, low maintenance and a reflection of clients’ individual personalities and needs. Viviani and her crew have been winning over customers throughout Edmond and Oklahoma City with their creativity and ability to see all aspects of a project through from start to finish.
She-Scapes handles everything from installation to maintenance, including weed control, fertilization and overseeding with core aeration. They also tackle flower bed maintenance, which includes leaf cleanup, mulching, fertilizing, weed treatment and prevention, infestation inspection, pruning and annual flower installation.
When it comes to customer feedback, Viviani tends to hear one remark over and over again.
“They say I took their idea and made it amazing,” she said. “When we get started, we’ll go through photos, we’ll go through our website, and I always have ideas on me. We just get to brainstorming then off we go.”
Another selling point is customers communicate with one person — Viviani — throughout the entire process. “I let my crew stick with their strengths, and they’re amazing at it,” she said. “If I don’t have to get out on the field and work with them, that means they’re doing a great job, and I spend my time communicating with the customer.
While housing developments pop up around the Edmond community, Viviani and her crew are quick to spot much-needed grading corrections at those homes and work to correct them — something customers are always thankful for in the end.
“We foresee issues and we bring them up and address them,” she said. “When customers get estimates from other companies, they’ll tell us, ‘The other company never even talked about that.’ It’s sort of troubleshooting and foreseeing issues and addressing them and giving customers the option to work on it now.”
