Growing A Landscaping Business

So you already own a landscaping business and you want to learn how to grow your business?

Well here are a few suggestions to help you along the way!


The life blood of any service business. Without good word of mouth and referrals, most service businesses would fail almost instantly.

Landscaping businesses are no different, in fact, I have never known a business (legit business) to rely so heavily on good word of mouth as much as landscaping businesses.

Every one is always asking friends who they get to do their lawns and maintain their landscapes.

Call or ask current customers for numbers of people who they might think would like your service and give the customer who is giving you the referrals a discount or free service.

This is the best way to get free and qualified new business.

Your customers neighbours

If you happen to see one of your customers neighbours out in their yard, don't be afraid to approach them and ask for their business as well.

Put flyers in mail boxes in all the mail boxes surrounding your neighbours home and let them know you work the area you are in frequently and that they only have to call you to get you to do their lawn.

Follow Up

Make sure you follow up on customers and see if they are interested in your services again. Just because you worked for someone once and they didn't ask you back, does no mean they still do not want your services.

Also, when you do mailings, do not just mail them once, mail them a couple of times a year or more. You must stay fresh in your customers minds and your prospective customers minds.
