The sun, the surf, the year round warm temperatures…we get it all in the Tampa Bay area where I live and usually on the hottest days of the year is when I find myself mowing and edging and trimming my grass and hedges. Its also about this time when I am thinking about hiring a professional lawn care company to take all this work away from me.
Scheduling of fertilization is next. Some Lawn Care Business Jacksonville Florida experts recommend fertilizing your lawn several times a year but recent studies report that cool-weather grasses are best fertilized during late fall. Warm weather grasses, on the other hand, must be fertilized during early spring as their growth peak during the summer.
As you start to look around at the various lawn care specialists in your area, keep in mind what needs and wants you have. A good way to find promising companies is to ask around. It is highly likely that someone you know has had a professional take care of their Lawn Care Business. Ask your neighbors, friends, and co workers for recommendations. You will be able to get the complete inside scoop about a company and this will help you determine if they are worth the quote that you receive from them.
Family and friends – Let people you know that you are looking for some help and ask if they can recommend someone. Again, it’s free, and you can be almost certain that the person’s work ethic will be up to par because they were recommended.
You’ll need a lawyer for legal counsel and an accountant to review the numbers. Be sure these 2 advisors are on YOUR expense account. Some things you cannot share, your Spouse and your legal/accounting counsel when buying yourself any business.
No matter how many times I tell people this principle, some will never get it. If you see a lawn care company that is wildly successful in your area it’s because they worked their tail off! I don’t care if the guy got his start with a huge inheritance, the company has to be doing something right or they’d simply go out of business.
Tip: If you take some time at the start do to research on what has made other companies successful you can learn a lot. This can give you a head start and you’ll be more efficient.
