Why Start Your Own Lawn Mowing Business? Now, more than ever these are recession proof businesses. There are lawns everywhere you look, (unless you live in a desert or on a mountain top) and someone will be mowing it. Why not you? It is a fantastic business to begin part time.
Many people out there suggest starting a Lawn Care Business. They may want you to get into the whole lawn care business, applying pesticides, fertilizers, landscaping and lawn irrigation systems.
Taking on too much, too soon, with too little experience can be a costly mistake. Start with the basics; everything revolves around mowing a lawn. The heart and most profitable part of any lawn care business should be the actual mowing of the lawn.
The low start up costs of a lawn mowing business means that one can start making money almost right away. But what should you charge? How do you know if you are giving your services away? Both are good questions.
The answers to these questions will be slightly different for each of us. There are certain factors such as lack of competition vs. a lot of competition. Too much competition will drive the price down unless you set yourself apart from your competitors.
Another variable factor is the weather patterns for the particular area in which you live and want to operate your business. Is it warm all year long, do you get rain on a regular basis or do you have cold snowy winters? This affects the total possible number of times you may be able to mow a customers lawn in a year.
Depending on your current financial situation and what you already own or have to invest will be different for each of us. If you already have a mower that is in good working condition and a truck or a car and a trailer then growing this type of business will be much easier and quicker than someone with just a mower. Beginning with only a mower will limit one to lawns on your street or in your neighbourhood.
How will possible customers find out that you are now offering a lawn mowing service?How do you make a good first impression in order to get the job? Remember you only get one chance to make a first impression.
Once you have a few customers how do you mow their lawns to make them look professional and keep them green without all the fertilizers and pesticides?
Who are the best types of customers to look for, that have the money and will pay you on time? They are out there and they are waiting for you. I can answer these questions as well as many more you may not have thought of and help you to Start Your Own Lawn Mowing Business and build it successfully the first time.
