5 Tips for New Landscaping Businesses

How to Make Your New Landscaping Business Stand Out

Starting a new business in any industry has its challenges, and landscaping is no exception. While landscaping companies can become wildly successful, the initial stages can be tough. With a low barrier to entry, it’s easy for anyone with a mower and weed eater to join the market, making it difficult for new businesses to stand out.

So, what practical measures can your new business take to distinguish itself and grow your client base?

1. Show Up on Schedule

Timeliness is crucial. Juggling multiple jobs can lead to delays, but planning your schedule meticulously can help. By managing your time well, you can be proactive rather than rushing from site to site.

2. Take Pride in Your Work

Go the extra mile to deliver exceptional service. Small details, like putting things back in place and ensuring you don’t blow debris into neighbors’ yards, matter. Customers appreciate not having their outdoor furniture or garbage cans displaced and gates left open. Trust is key, and if a customer can trust you, they will stay with you.

3. Communicate Effectively

Good communication can set you apart from competitors. Customers often prefer responsive and professional landscapers, even if they charge more. Respond quickly, take detailed notes, and use digital quotes to enhance professionalism. SatQuote allows you to set up quotes that include pricing, contract terms, and areas for customer feedback, helping you appear more professional.

4. Attention to Detail

Quality edging can make a significant difference. A yard with crisp edges looks well-manicured. High-quality work satisfies customers and can drive word-of-mouth referrals. Additionally, offering extra services, such as poop-scooping, can set your business apart. This not only provides additional income but also keeps clients engaged year-round, increasing retention.

5. Diversify Your Services

Including extra services in your offerings can add value to your visits. However, be mindful not to overextend yourself with tasks that aren’t worth your time. Focus on services that provide real value to your clients and help you stand out.

In Summary

Take pride in your work, communicate effectively, be prompt, and pay attention to details. These small steps can make a big difference. Offering additional services can create more value for your clients and help you stand out in a crowded market.
