Lawn Care is becoming a very profitable business. Long gone are the days when
a neighbor would pay you $10 to do her lawn on Friday afternoon. Today, people
with their own lawn care companies charge $35 to $45 for a residential yard.
With the proper equipment, a one person lawn care company can do 10 to 12 yards
each and every day. With that same equipment, by doing nothing but cutting
yards, one person can make more money in a season than by working a full-time
Since lawn care is becoming so profitable, people in the lawn care business need to take advantage of every option available to them to increase their business.
There are very few sources of information for small and mid-sized lawn care companies. Try asking one of your competitors what his pricing strategies are and you will probably not get much information from him.

There are not many businesses where you can find someone to give you
step-by-step real world advice on how to get your business up and running.
The Lawn Care Business has always been one of those businesses where you have to learn by yourself with trial and error. Since it is a competitive business, current business owners do not want to give away business secrets. They certainly do not want to tell you how much they charge to do a customers' lawn. And they will never share secrets on the best way to advertise.
Wouldn't it be great if all the questions you have about starting and improving your lawn care business were answered for you?
StartALawnCareBusiness is a company which has been in the lawn care business since 1992. "We started small and it took us a couple of years before we really felt comfortable giving estimates to customers." Lots of new Lawn Care Businesses face the same questions about giving estimates and advertising their businesses.
"Lawn Care isn't just about doing your neighbor's lawn for $10 per week. If you know the proper methods of running your business, it is really pretty easy to have a good full time income doing nothing more than just cutting lawns." The success any person can have depends on several factors but success is certainly attainable.
"There are plenty of high school kids who have bought their first car or who are saving up for college with the money made in their small lawn care businesses. There are also lots of people supporting their whole families just with their lawn care business."
Estimating and customer contact is one
of the hardest parts of running a lawn care business. "It is far too easy to
underbid what you should really be making on any particular job. Customers
always want to talk you down in price and before too long you might be charging
$30 for a yard where you should be making $45. If you underbid too many jobs
like that, you are losing serious profit potential."
Larger contract work is another area in which Lawn Care Businesses need help. "We find that people just don't know how to go about looking for these larger Lawn Care contracts." There are very definite methods of approaching large businesses and government agencies. Knowing the proper way to get on the bidding list is very important. Some Lawn Care contracts go for very high prices because there just aren't enough bidders.
When helping new and existing lawn care companies
with their businesses, larger lawn care bidding is a focus point. "There is nothing wrong in
basing your lawn care business on residential customers. However, one or two
large Lawn Care contracts can really put you over the top in your earning
potential." Knowing how to get through the bidding process is something every
Lawn Care Business should learn.
Success comes from know-how. "If you know how to estimate jobs, know how to negotiate with customers, and if you know how to do the work quickly and efficiently, then you are on the right road to success in your lawn care business."
We offer a Lawn Care Business toolkit to help new and existing Lawn Care Business owners. The toolkit contains a DVD instructional video series which plays right on your TV. The toolkit also contains estimating calculators, a massive series of business training manuals, business letters, and customer agreement examples.
Start A Lawn Care Business is a support organization for small and medium sized Lawn Care Business owners.
