About a Career as a Landscape Company Owner

Imagine having a high paying job that lets you spend time outdoors and use your creativity to create beautiful landscapes.

Landscaping involves planting and caring for trees, shrubs, flowers, ground covers, and grass. It also includes design elements such as walkways, decks, retaining walls, patios, lighting, and anything else external to the building.

Is there a market for your landscaping business? Yes! Beautiful formal and informal landscapes are important to busy North American homeowners who have limited time to perform their own maintenance.

In addition to residential yards and estates, some typical projects that landscapers design, install or maintain include: public and private school grounds, public parks, recreation sites, streetscapes, civic center landscapes and waterfronts, business courtyards, and golf courses.

Your guide to becoming a Landscape Company Owner was phenomenal! Truly there is no other guide that competes. I am not a landscaper by trade, nor have any sort of experience with the design and care of estates and beautiful lawns. I am a consultant, and have found myself fascinated with the landscaping services business. Since reading your guide I couldn't think of anyone else I'd rather ask for advice in my future endeavors as a landscaping consultant.
