OK let me preface this by saying I am not an expert in Lawn Care so if I have made incorrect assumptions below it is from lack of industry knowledge. The way I see Lawn Care and Basic Landscaping is that it is an industry with very low barriers of entry and a very deep employment pool (here in TX). So with a relative basic setup for equipment and a mass marketing scheme clients should come forward at a moderate rate and through good work grow. That being said here is my plan below and I would appreciate constructive criticism if you feel it necessary. Personnel: Initial Crew of 3 persons (Manager @ $10 / Regulars @ $8 per hour) F-250 w trailer Metro 26" (yes I have changed route on this if you saw my previous post) Echo PB 620 Echp PE-310 Edger Echo SRM-210 Marketing Strategy: Initial placement of 40,000 flyers in 4 areas (please review door flyer) Sponsorship of local kids soccer team and baseball team Ad in city paper Ad placements on local bulletin boards My Plan: I will utilize next day cc processing for work performed Lawns will be multched or bagged for an upcharge If marketing takes off I will start the second crew With this strategy I beleive I can be successful. As I mentioned my experience at this is basically my own yard and landscaping. I have two other companies which I manage so my experience comes from there. Please let me know if I am missing the ball because I feel I can be successful relatively quickly. As always all thoughts are appreciated.
