Business Overview:

This strategically developed, 25 year established landscaping and lawn maintenance company with 19% net margins along with an unparalleled industry reputation. Based in the DC Metropolitan area, this dominant landscaping brand drives an incredible 50% recurring customer rate across both their commercial and residential audiences. Carrying an effective array of landscape, carpentry, and design services, this proven business boasts well-designed, cost effective, attractive commercial landscapes that are functional and increase the property value of an individual building or office park. With limitless scaling opportunities, this lawn company currently leverages very minimal advertising, relying solely on Angie’s List and word-of-mouth for their vast and reliable growth. This leaves the highly impactful avenues of Social Media, Paid Media, Affiliate Marketing, and other service channels as promising, untapped markets. This exceptional offering is sure to be a rewarding investment for any interested new owner.

The core of this company’s amazing growth is its impeccable design work and skilled teams. With an array of dedicated specialists, this innovative offering provides extraordinary, entirely unique lawn designs and projects for every individual client. With a hands on system, this company utilizes a highly effective 5 step process. Starting at a free consultation, the project manager meets with prospective clients to go over their needs; current situational factors such as pests, drainage issues, and fencing obstacles; and how they can solve their issues. Next, the landscaping solution is dully designed and mapped out in CAD. After that, 3D pictures are shared for final design approval. Then, the project is put together and budget approved. Finally, this amazingly skilled team gets to work to bring their client’s dreams to life.

Offering services across the outdoor vertical, this business provides:

• Landscape Designs
• Yard Maintenance
• Turf Installation
• Mulching
• Lawn Fertilization (both chemical and organic)
• Deck Installation
• Driveway Creation
• Fire Pits
• Patios
• Walkways
• Walls
• Professional Sprinkler Installation
• Accent Lighting Systems
• Timer Systems
• Reclaimed or City Water Supply
• Artificial Turf Supply and Installation
• Concrete Retaining Wall Creation
• Water Features
• Rain Gardens
• Full Commercial Services

Some of the most promising paths to success in this exceedingly profitable market would be to add function extensions into services such as fence work, pressure washing, and painting. Other impactful avenues include local advertising, social media use, and paid media. As landscape is an extremely visual industry, creating a Facebook and Instagram presence would be exceptionally powerful for brand awareness and customer outreach. In-house lawn care product lines such as fertilizers, weed sprays, and gardening tools; could also significantly boost this brand’s bottom line.

With some seasonality, this company sees a significant rise in business during Spring, Fall, and early Summer. However, late summer and winter are both slow segments of the year due to how the weather effects the time people want to be outside.

Cumulatively, the current ownership dedicates 50 hours across 2 people each week for running and maintaining this business. One of the owners focuses on visiting clients and preparing proposals, while the other specializes in landscape design and office management. The ideal new owner for this business is someone with a background in landscape and outdoor design.

At the moment, this business has 7 office employees and 10 specialized work crews with 3 to 4 workers per crew and about 40 project employees. This business has an accountant that works both on the books and project budgeting on a full-time basis from April to December and a part-time basis from January to March. Working on the same schedule, they then have a proposal, permit, customer service, scheduling, and billing specialist. Next, there’s a maintenance crew and landscaping scheduling customer service representative as well as a parking lot and equipment maintenance manager who also works on that same schedule. Then there are 2 full time workers who manage construction and landscape.

While the company has a strong track record, it does not yet utilize any large-scale marketing practices. Currently leveraging only a campaign on Angie’s List from January to September which generates an average of $328,000 in gross revenues which can be calculated into a Return on Ad Spend, or ROAS, of 1,822%. This company’s brand awareness and profits could be greatly increased with the addition of in-house product lines in landscaping, lawn care, and gardening products; Paid Media Campaigns; Retargeting Campaigns; Geographic Service Area Expansion; and Social Media Presence.

This offering is a strategically built company that is perfectly positioned for continued success and growth. The keys to success in this business are business-mindedness, effective communications, swift project design and commencement, and strict budget understanding. With all this in mind, any lawncare expert should be able to take this opportunity profitably, seamlessly, and effectively to a whole new level.
