Start A Lawn Care Business with Spring Lawn Care. Make Money in 2015.

Though the nights are still chilly and there might be a couple more snowfalls in our near future, spring lawn care time is already here.

As the housing market continues to take hold and home owners are once again taking pride in their lawns and landscaping, 2015 looks to be a great year for anyone with their own lawn care business. There is a tremendous amount of money to be made in 2015 and if you want to make more money in your lawn care business, you better get started right away.

The most money in lawn care comes from smaller residential lawn care customers and larger year-long mowing contracts. We recommend a healthy mixture of these two types of clients. The most important thing, however, is getting your pricing right. If you underestimate your jobs, you are going to lose money. Our lawn care business guidebook and estimating software will help you price your jobs correctly and make more money than you could ever imagine with your own lawn care company.

So, don’t wait until it’s too late. Start today by getting residential customer and large scale lawn mowing contracts. We will show you how.

2015 Lawn Care Contracts

It’s 2015 and another lawn care maintenance season is just around the corner.

Though most of the country is still enjoying winter weather, many government agencies and large businesses are already thinking about securing lawn care companies to service their landscaping needs for the upcoming spring and summer mowing seasons. Contracts are often prepared during January and February. The first mowing schedule of these contracts often takes place in March.

So, what does this mean for your lawn care company? Well, it means that you should be bidding on these contracts right now. Successful bidding of a lawn care contract requires skills in estimating and negotiation. It also requires a smart business owner who knows how to read a Request-For-Bids. Pitfalls and loopholes in contracts can cost you thousands of dollars if you misunderstand the wording of the lawn care contract.

Our company has bid many contracts. From standard residential lawn care contracts to large multi-year government mowing contracts, we have become adept at successfully bidding contracts. We have add this knowledge to a special section in our Lawn Care Business program that deals specifically with bidding lawn care contracts.

Lawn Care Request for Bids – Contracts.

Are you a lawn care business owner that is tired of doing 100% residential jobs?

Though there is great money to be made mowing residential lawns and creating small landscapes, we suggest many lawn care companies can greatly increase their revenue by adding a few larger-scale mowing contracts into their customer mix. If you have ever wanted to take your lawn care business to the next level, February is a perfect time to bid on larger scale lawn mowing and landscaping contracts. City and county governments, government agencies, industrial plants, retail establishments, and apartment complexes are letting out bids for lawn care work during February.

Successfully bidding a large-scale grass cutting contract is not as easy as it might sound. We have seen many people fail at successfully bidding mowing contracts. Common mistakes in bidding on these contracts include: misunderstanding the scope of work, improper equipment selection, under bidding in an attempt to lowball your competitors, over bidding in an attempt to make more mone from the contracting agency, and insufficient business requirements (lack of insurance, incomplete permits, unproven ability to complete the work.)

If you would like to learn how to properly bid on lawn mowing and grass cutting contracts, our Lawn Care Business guidebook and software program can help you. The program includes estimating software and an excellent guide to bidding lawn mowing contracts.

Lawn Care Business Opportunities for 2009

There is no denying that 2009 will be a challenging year for lawn care business owners. However, never overlook the fact that challenges bring great opportunity.

Within the pages of the Lawn Care Business Program we point out many opportunities you can take advantage of as a LCO to make more money in your lawn care & landscaping business.  In today’s lawn care blog post, we want to focus on one particular aspect of the lawn care business even as other sectors of the economy suffer. 

A recent posting at the Intellectual Capital Report Real Estate Investing Guide emphasizes the importance of ‘curb appeal’ in the eyes of  real estate investors when attempting to sell properties. 

As their number 1 recommendation for increasing curb appeal they suggest mowing and edging the lawn every week:

“Mow the lawn – Mow and edge once a week during the summer and every other week during the winter (depending on climate). Pretend this is your own home (or better).”

Number two on their list is landscaping.  You have read this correctly. Lawn Care and Landscaping are the NUMBER 1 and NUMBER 2 most important considerations to increase curb appeal and ultimately sell houses and property.

This has really struck me as a very important concept for all lawn care professionals to understand.  Real Estate Agents, Investors, Banks, Mortgage Companies, and Individual House Flippers are all desperate to sell homes and property.  In this slumping economy, they are taking desperate and immediate measures.

All lawn care and landscaping business owners have tremendous opportunity this year.  It is time to pick up the phone and start calling banks and real estate investors.  Knock on the doors of mortgage companies and lawyers specializing in foreclosure.  Get your name on the list of your city’s public works department to let them know you are capable of tackling abandoned yards and properties.

In spite of the real estate market crash, 2009 might be the best year ever for your lawn care company.
