Landscaping services are a necessity; something every property owner must deal with directly or delegate. If left untended to, properties can become overrun with plant growth. Unwanted weeds and overgrowth are a nuisance that can eventually result in a property being undesirable or even condemned. For those who can’t stand working in a cubicle, running a landscaping business can be an enjoyable and lucrative way to make a living. The benefits of being a landscaping business owner include being able to set your own hours and to work with repeat clients on a contractual basis. As long as the job standard is high, the work tends to continue. The business of landscaping is built through marketing, reputation, quality of work and referrals. Whether one decides to become a solo practitioner, or a centralized landscaping service provider employing multiple landscapers or landscaping crews, the landscaping industry is a field of work that will always be in demand.

Operating a landscaping business involves attention to detail, time management, and the ability to successfully market. Operations require lawn mowers, gardening tools, vehicles for transportation to work sites, portable lighting and proper attire. Some landscaping businesses offer snow removal services in the winter months. Deciding on a niche is important. Some landscaping services specialize in homes only while others deal with commercial properties. If staffing is necessary, a landscaping business must carefully vet employees for fastidiousness, trustworthiness, and check referrals. Landscaping services typically run using on premise software or software as a service (SaaS) like FieldPulse. These platforms manage employees and independent contractors, handle scheduling, communicate with clients and run accounting, billing, invoicing and landscaping payment.
