Business Overview:

Originally founded many decades ago, the landscaping business began as a small-scale lawn care business that grew to provide consistent lawn care services for a vast number of clients in the area. The business holds longtime success in the industry due to their longevity and reputation in the community for quality lawn care. A large portion of the company’s success comes from their consistent business with commercial accounts, which is a strong aspect of the business that competing lawn care firms in the area cannot match. Because of their recurring business with commercial accounts, as well as residential customers referring their contacts to the business, the landscaping business spends a miniscule amount on marketing efforts. Once a customer is sold in a lawn care business, they are likely to refer friends, family, and neighbors to that business as well, which allowed the business to keep their marketing expenses low while still acquiring many new customers each year.
In addition to commercial and residential lawn maintenance, the shop also offers several segments of lawn care services, including landscape installation, snow removal, and field line painting.
The vast majority of customers approaching the landscaping business are commercial accounts that require lawn care work on a consistent basis (bi-weekly or monthly) for the sake of property maintenance. Apart from this, the business provides services to a respectable number of residential clients, many of whom contact the business for recurring services as well. The business also has no significant competitors at its size and scale; the only competition is from other local lawn care businesses.
A new owner could capitalize on the longtime and recurring business of the landscaping business to maintain a consistent stream of income in the future. However, the main threat to the business stems from the fact that the landscaping services industry is easily affected by downtrends in the macroeconomic environment. This is partially offset by the business’ diverse array of commercial accounts. A minority of the business’ revenue comes from residential accounts, which are more likely cut back on landscaping services during a recession. It’s worth noting that much of their customer base is middle or upper-middle class. This is a demographic that has a larger appetite for discretionary home service expenditures, which would make cutting back on landscaping services unlikely. Besides susceptibility to macroeconomic trends, the business is also threatened by harsh weather conditions, as poor temperature and precipitation can hinder the business’s ability to provide lasting lawn care services.

Property Features and Assets:

The landscaping business uses two main facilities to conduct business operations: a lot and a set of industrial garages. The lot is rented from an individual, and all employees meet at this location every morning before work begins to pick up vehicles. The lot is located within 10 miles of all the employees, enabling in-person communication and equipment acquisition. The industrial garages are part of the owner’s home and are rented out by the business. The owner would lease out the garages to a buyer and would help facilitate a long-term lease at the lot with the current landlord.

Market Competition and Expansion:

Due to the nature of the lawn care and landscaping services industry, there are a few threats to the landscaping business. One threat to the business is the susceptibility to poor macroeconomic conditions. Individuals and businesses might be forced to turn down the business’s services in the event of an economic downturn. Apart from this, the business is also threatened by poor weather conditions, since harsh precipitation or temperatures can impede the business’s ability to provide lasting services. Although the landscaping business has grown without the need for extensive marketing efforts, there is potential to garner a larger client base through use of digital marketing. With investing into digital marketing (running Google Ads, enhancing their website’s Search Engine Optimization (SEO)), or investing more time into social media accounts, there is great potential for growth of the business. By investing into digital marketing, the business will possess the capability to reach a larger customer base. While the current services offered by the landscaping business are strong in quality, there is potential for growth of the business as a whole by offering additional products and services. The business’s current lawn care applications could easily be expanded to include winterization services, tree work, and irrigation system application. Apart from these related lawn care segments, the business could offer organic pesticide application, a growing product offering across the lawn care industry ever since firms have been moving away from chemical pesticides.
