Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

If you like working outdoors and enjoy nature, you can start your own profitable landscaping business. This book is perfect for anyone who wants to start from scratch, or for anyone who already works in the landscaping business but would like to strike out on his or her own.

Start & Run a Landscaping Business will get you started in the fascinating business of horticulture and landscaping and will prove essential in helping you to shorten the learning curve you have ahead of you.

You don’t need to know anything about horticulture just yet. This book will give you the basics of horticulture and landscaping, and the basics of running a business in easy-to-understand terms. Written by a landscaping expert with a decade of experience, the book includes an insider’s tricks of the trade. It demonstrates how you can set up your own business and how you can keep it running profitably.

A bonus CD-ROM is included with forms and worksheets to help you get your business running. Forms can be printed out as many times as needed or even customized to suit your needs. All forms and worksheets are included in both PDF and MS Word formats for use on a Windows-based PC.

This book also covers snow shoveling and plowing, for landscapers who live in colder climes. The book outlines how you can make money all year round, even when it snows!

Format: Paperback
This book was very well written with good balance between general business advice and more specific landscaping advice. I like that he does not mind going out on a limb to recommend specific brands and types of commercial lawn care equipment. He also includes a very handy CD filled with all sorts of sheets that can b personalized to your individual use. This book should become the authoritative guide to those looking to enter the business.

Format: Paperback
Very good book on business side, not much information about landscaping itself. Very detailled information about opening a business. Costs, overhead costs, and initial capital.

Well, the book really is helpful though the main reason I bought this was for everything that is on the CD. SO this has proven to be useless to me. They need to be more specific about compatibility, it is a 2005 product.

This book will be most helpful to those looking to start a business without a lot of actual "business" knowledge (not to be confused with vocational ability). You may know your plants, maintenance methods, and be great at costing jobs, but marketing and the like are also important and this book will no doubt give you some great ideas.
