GoMaterials launches in Texas

Landscaping businesses in the state can now utilize the service to source wholesale landscaping plants, trees, palms and shrubs.

June 2, 2021

Landscaping supply chain start-up GoMaterials has expanded its procurement service into Texas. 

Launched in 2016, the wholesale plant marketplace is already being used by professional landscapers in Florida, New York, Quebec and Ontario to source millions of dollars’ worth of softscape materials.

Landscaping businesses in Texas can now utilize the service to source wholesale landscaping plants, trees, palms and shrubs from hundreds of verified wholesale nurseries from within Texas, Florida, or across the U.S. and Canada.

Founded by a former landscaping business owner, GoMaterials aims to resolve day-to-day operational challenges such as late deliveries and wrong specs. Marc Elliott, CEO of GoMaterials, found plant procurement and post-delivery follow-ups the most challenging part of the job.

“Wrong materials, wrong dates, last-minute no-shows, and the hassle to find replacements – it’s all part of the job, but it shouldn’t be,” Elliott said. “GoMaterials makes efficient and hassle-free jobs the norm, not the exception.”

GoMaterials’s launch in Texas can be beneficial for landscapers struggling with the unprecedented rise in demand for landscaping due to global sustainability targets, rising housing starts and the aftermath of the Texas freeze. In addition, with fewer young people joining the industry, there is a growing need for business services to improve the efficiency of operations.

“It’s simple,” Elliott said. “We take the hassle out of your hustle. We free up your procurement time, so you can submit more bids, train more employees and in all, grow your business.”
