According to the Bureau of Census Service Annual Survey, the lawn care and landscape business is a $ 46.8 billion industry in 2006. Each year, people spend that much on landscaping services. Over the last 10 years, the industry has grown considerably. The beauty of the landscaping industry is that that virtually anyone can do it. No prior business knowledge is required. I know high school students that make $ 12,000 or more in the summer. I believe that anyone can make at least $ 20,000 landscaping. Great landscapes earn over $ 100,000 a year. What the industry offers is an easy to start business opportunity. Most aspects of the business are already taken care of and all you have to do is follow the steps that I outline in this business kit. It is an extremely simple operation to learn and apply. You can do it. Yes, you.
Landscaping is a great solution to the dull 9-5 job. This business lets you be your own boss, work for yourself, and determine your own schedule. With over 7 years of industry experience, I have created a realistic business opportunity that has proved to be a success with anyone who takes the principles and applications them.
The downside of the lawn care and landscaping business is that it is highly seasonal. Your location can spell a huge difference in the potential success of your business. The demand in Florida is higher than the demand in Maine or Michigan or in other states that remain buried in snow for a longer period of time.
