Start a Home Based Landscape Business

Why not start a home based landscape business that makes money. Today, we will look at an easy step-by-step guide to make money in your home based landscape business. Landscaping is in great demand today. Developers want landscapers to design gardens for commercial buildings. Real estate agents want neat gardens to increase the value of a home.

Homeowners want theme gardens. Some popular themes are the Garden of Eden, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, and the Gardens of Versailles. Here are three steps to help you start your home business and become a professional landscaper:

1. Check out the licenses you need at your state and local government.

2. Join a national trade association such as the American Nursery and Landscape Association (ANLA). They provide beginning landscapers with the help they need. They offer educational programs, and advice with licensing. They also provide credit card processing and help in setting up your home business. In addition, they offer insurance.

The ANLA provides networking opportunities and trade fairs. These give you a chance to learn the ropes on the job with established landscapers.

3. Establish your credibility with three references. In the beginning you can provide landscaping services to family and friends and ask them for references. Your membership in the trade association as well as the Chamber of Commerce and the Better Business Bureau will further enhance your credibility.

Take a look at these quick and easy ways to find clients:

• Place door hangers with a description of your landscaping service on doors in your area.
• Post ads in the local newspaper and on community bulletin boards.
• Place magnetic decals with the name of your home business and telephone number on your car and ask friends to do the same.

There are three fascinating gardens that are all the rage today:

1. Butterfly Gardens

Everybody loves big, orange, Monarch butterflies and you can plant a garden to attract them in droves. Butterflies are attracted to bright-colored flowers and bushes that grow in full sun.

Some butterfly favorites include dahlias, black-eyed Susans, honeysuckle, lavender, sunflowers, phlox, butterfly weed, purple sage, purple salvia, zinnia, lobelia, and cherry laurel.

2. Honeybee Gardens

Honeybees are dying out everywhere and this could spell disaster for our food supply. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, one-third of our food is pollinated by insects. And, 80 percent of these are honeybees.

People everywhere are clamoring for honeybee gardens. Some even set up honeybee boxes in their gardens in hopes the bees will come. You can provide honeybee boxes as part of your service and maintain them as an added service.
