Business Description

This successful commercial business was founded in 1983 and features a long standing track record of impressive revenue, profits and satisfied, loyal customers. The present ownership has been in place since 2011 and has taken the business to another level focusing on the consistent delivery of high quality workmanship and a "customer first" operating philosophy. This formula has led to many referrals from the existing customer base as well as expansion to new properties already owned by the larger property ownership groups. Current services include a complete array of corporate grounds maintenance, including:

Hardscapes / Drives / Walkways
Mowing, Edging, and Blowing
Tree/Shrub Maintenance and Spraying
Turf Programs
Flowers/Shrubs/Tree Installation
Mulch Installation
Landscape Installation and Maintenance

This operation serves the entire Tidewater area and prides itself on hiring local residents that deliver professional, quality service. While the current business is strong and steady, there is upside growth potential in offering new services to the existing customer base, including irrigation installation/servicing, tree removal/stump grinding and snow shoveling contracts. The combination of a existing loyal satisfied customer base, low operating overhead and dedicated trained work force make this a turn key investment that will generate strong returns from Day One.

Motivated seller has just lowered the asking price from $199,000 and is now offering an attractive seller financing package of $80,000 cash down at closing with the signing of a $80,000 loan with 7% interest for 24 months ... offer available to serious, qualified buyers only. Seller financing option is a limited time offer ... hurry or miss out!
