Shorten Your Lawn and Landscape Business “Off Season”

Nothing is worse than when the work suddenly dries up or comes to a complete halt.

This is scary for lawn and landscape business owners for plenty of reasons – money, losing employees, etc.

It doesn’t have to be like this if you are willing to be creative and do what you can to extend your off season.

This could mean snow removal services, selling Christmas trees, holiday lighting, pressure washing, firewood services, parking lot cleaning, etc.

On top of the off season making things difficult at that moment, it also usually has an impact on cash flow heading into the spring season.

I prefer and preach profit, but even if you have to offer services that keep the doors open, your people busy, the bills paid and your salary consistent then that is what you should do.
