Easy Ways to Market Your Landscaping Business

8 Easy Ways to Market Your Landscaping Business

If you are serious about your landscaping business and want to get more customers this upcoming growing season, now is the time to strategize and lock in new clients. Focus on ways to market your landscaping business  before the big rush gets here.

Get Started on Marketing Your Landscape Business Early

Once the grass starts to green and the weather warms up, you will be too busy to focus in on your marketing strategy. At Suburban, we believe that growing a lawn care business is a lot like growing a garden. You need to nurture it, 

Do you wish to market your landscaping business in order to get it the next level?

Consider these marketing tips that will connect you with more customers and bring you more sales!

8 Easy Ways to Market Your Landscaping Business

1) Brand Recognition – Get ahead of the pack by creating an attractive name and logo for your landscaping business. Professional logos transfer well to all sorts of advertising mediums, such as trucks, flyers, stationary, website and apparel.

The more you circulate yourself across a variety of platforms, the greater your name and brand recognition will become.

2) Website – Many landscapers discount the importance of having a user-friendly up-to-date website. This is a mistake. Expectations are a lot higher than they were even 5 years ago. Many of your clientele will prefer to contact you in their free time after business hours. A website contact form presents them with an opportunity to contact you during off hours.

3) Directory Listings – Much as we would like to think the landscaping business is word-of-mouth (and it is), if you want to branch out then correctly listing your business in directories such as Google, Bing, Yelp is a good start.

4) Yard Signs – Professional-looking lawn signs are a great way of showing y our business side, especially when your former clients agree to display them in their own yards. Also, potential new clients will know right away what your business is all about – they can see results right in front of them!

5) Magnetic Signs   Simply put your logo and contact information on the truck (as a bumper sticker) or on a side of the vehicle for free advertising!

6) Direct mailing – Believe it or not, another successful way to reach more potential customers is through direct mail postcards targeting your geographic market. Check out some of these  landscaping postcard samples to get ideas.

7) Fliers and Door Hangers – Believe it or not, some people still prefer to receive a paper copy of whatever you’re trying to sell! Get fliers and door hangers and pass them out in your neighborhood. Even better if you offer an incentive like a special discount for first time customers. Don’t forget to include a detachable business card for future reference.

8) Get Social – Sharing your before and after pictures on social media channels is an invaluable marketing tool. Engage your customers and they will cheer you on. Don’t be afraid to share, post, tweet, and simply have fun with it!

So, there you have it. 8 simple ways to market your landscaping business at a very affordable price. Of course, getting involved within the community that your business services will create good will and increase your brand’s impression.

Lawn Mower Winter Maintenance Tips

Lawn Mower Winter Maintenance Tips

As the seasons change and the snow begins to fall, it’s time for lawn mower winter maintenance. With a little post-season preparation, your lawn mower will feel brand new when spring comes back around.

You should always store your lawn mower in a cool/dry area, and make sure you cover the mower to prevent wear and tear. But before you cover, you should follow these basic tips below to ensure proper winterization of your lawn mower.

Lawn Mower Winter Maintenance Tips

  1. Empty the fuel tank. If you let the gas sit in the fuel tank for an extended period of time, this could cause a clog in the carburetor. We suggest that you run the engine until the gas tank is completely empty.
  2. Replace the oil. Frequently changing the oil within your lawn mower will ensure a longer life sentence. Be sure to use the suggested amount of oil provided by the manufacturer.
  3. Charge the battery. During the winter months, it’s important to charge the battery every so often to prevent battery failure.
  4. Clean the mower deck. As an effort to prevent any rust from forming, you should always clean underneath the mower deck to remove any grass clippings.
  5. Sharpen the blades. It’s better to do this ahead of time, that way when spring comes you are ready to mow!
