A maintenance company generally offers basic mowing, edging and trimming services with options that may include lawn aeration, fertilization, weed killing and treatment, tree work, fencing, light construction, and gardening.
Lawn maintenance is a year-round business operating mostly during the spring and summer months. It is common for a company to perform services once per week during the spring, twice per month during the summer and fall, and once per month during the winter. Specific lawn maintenance proposals should balance the need to keep a clean lawn and control costs.
According to AngiesList.com, a professional lawn mowing service charges $35 to $50 for each basic maintenance service. Hardworking lawn care professionals can make upwards of $50,000 in their first year in business and much more after establishing a strong customer network. According to Entrepreneur.com, there are at least 10,000 individual lawn care services in the United States, and the broader industry generates $68 billion per year.Learn more about Business Communications
