Property Information

Facilities:

The small rented facility is present for storage of the lawn maintenance equipment. The location is central to the primary operational area to ease of access and convenience. Monthly lease rate is $575.00.

Growth & expansion opportunities:

Potential for growth exists in developing the neighborhoods already serviced by the company and a focus on increasing industrial and government contracts. Increased advertising, particularly prior to the start of the growing season, will increase awareness and opportunities for business growth. Addition of winter services such as snow plowing and salting for existing customer base will increase revenue and produce a high profit margin during the off season. This is a scalable business operating in a sustainable industry. As personal discretionary wealth increases, lawn maintenance services are expected to grow.

Competition:

This a competitive field where quality and timeliness of service are often the defining advantages. The business is located within a large residential community and has easy access to additional home owned locations. Light manufacturing facilities are also within the primary operational area.

Reason for selling:

The owner wishes to retire.
