10 is kind of a benchmark for success the way I see it, but just yesterday I heard of two companies in our area that went down, one that has been in business for 15 yrs the other only about 6 yrs.I'll use the Celebrating 10 years in business phrase, but not sure what else. With all the other companies folding I thought it might be a good marketing technique.
In a sense like the rest of us. I started mowing professionally for a large school dist in '98 got burnt out on that and in March of '02 I started on my own doing concrete edging/curbing Kwik Kerb. Realized I was doing more land/hardscaping so I switched to St. Louis Ponds & Waterfalls in '04 and I've been going to the school of HardKnocks/Hardscaping ever since.It seems the average tenure of hardscape companies is 5 to 8 years. My unscientific data.
It's other week I tried to pull up a Pennsylvaniana company's website of an industry online personality and it was no longer in cyberspace. Domain name registration expired on 12/18 and not renewed. Caught me by surprise.
10 years is a good length. Now did this 10 yrs begin as mowing?
