For all those who came up with this - let’s be honest - awesome idea, we’ve got a step-by-step guide on starting from scratch.

Below, we’re going to cover the basics you’ll need to know not only to start but to watch your lawn care business skyrocket. 

Why Start a Lawn Care Business in the First Place?

Like we said above, starting a lawn care business is an awesome idea and there are good reasons for it. If you’re still hesitating, here are a few facts to nudge you forward.

It’s a Growing Industry

Now is a good time to start a lawn care business - the industry is outright blooming as we speak. According to IBIS World, landscaping is currently worth over 115 billion dollars and it's the third-largest industry in the sector of Administration, Business Support, and Waste Management Services.

It’s in Demand

The worth of the landscaping sector, which includes the grass cutting service, does come from somewhere. The demand is there and the numbers speak for it. 

As we can read in the NALP’s Industry Growth Initiative Fielded National Survey to Track Consumer Spending on Industry Services, 40% of lawn or landscape owners hired a professional in the last year. At the same time, 50% of that group was after mowing services.

To simplify it - almost every second house owner you talk to might be interested in hiring you.

It’s a Repeatable Type of Business
