Hidden Gems: Meet Francisco Castruita-Perez of FJCP Lawncare & Landscaping

Today we’d like to introduce you to Francisco Castruita-Perez.

Hi Francisco, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
Growing up as a child my father would take me to his lawncare worksites to help out as much as I could by picking up sticks, pine cones, and other small debris that a 6-year-old could handle.

As I grew older, I started to manage more heavy equipment and learn how to actually maintain a yard. I grew fond of this work and by the time I was out of high school I had decided to start my own lawncare and landscaping small business.

Now, I am thankful for all the work my father has shown me along with the respect to have in this business. I now have fully-equipped trailers and trucks servicing the Fayetteville, Raeford, Hope Mills, and surrounding areas with lawn care and landscaping.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
It has been a lot of hard work both mentally and physically.

When I first started the business, I would say purchasing equipment and making sure to have every piece of equipment for the job purchased and stored right with security as well. Most of the equipment needed to run successful lawn care and landscaping business is often expensive.

The security for the equipment is also a bit pricey, but all worth every dime that is spent. Most of what had to be learned was that everything that is bought for the business is an investment for it and you have to treat it well and it will return the favor.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about FJCP Lawncare & Landscaping?
FJCP Lawncare & Landscaping LLC is a small business that cares about how your yard is maintained and makes sure that your yard has the most professional maintenance it can get.

We also set up landscape designs in garden beds, pressure wash, install mulch/pine straw, install sod and install irrigation systems. We are known for our professionalism and how well organized we are when it comes to a clean setup. Our trailers are equipped with the best tools needed for any job.

We are a “word of mouth” and referral type of business. No job is too big or small in our business and we would like to continue to service the Fayetteville and surrounding NC areas and provide our best customer service and services to everyone.

Are there any important lessons you’ve learned that you can share with us?
The most important lessons I have learned are to value yourself and to value the hard work that is put into every single job that you are doing.

Don’t sell yourself short. I have learned a lot from hands-on work that included a lot of labor. Learning for everyone and a little bit of everything goes a long way.
