This is a unique opportunity to acquire an established, full-service landscaping company with a 35-year reputation and long-term customer base. Owner-operated since its inception. Owner has never advertised in 35 years and makes a great living. Crews are dedicated and experienced, and most have over 10 years with the company. No job is too big or too small. The company provides custom landscape design; installation and maintenance of pavers, water features, and hardscapes; tree and shrub care; and lawn fertilization and irrigation. They also provide snow removal services in the winter. Equipment is well maintained and included in the sale. Owner is willing to provide a month of training to insure Buyer’s success. A great benefit of owning this business is the recurring revenue. 35% of revenue is from maintenance work are under Commercial and Residential contract. 65% of revenue is custom design/build work, much of which results in long-term maintenance thereafter. Customers include developers and home builders, home owners’ associations, commercial companies, and individual residences. 90% of their service area is contained in Carson City, which could be expanded if desired. Northern Nevada is currently experiencing unprecedented population growth. The landscaping industry is well positioned to capitalize on this growth, as this is a service that cannot be automated. Current Owner has to turn away work. A motivated Buyer could easily expand this company by taking on additional contracts, and marketing to the influx of new residents and businesses. Or a Buyer could simply step in and enjoy continued growth and profitability.
Year Established: 1982
Facilities: A 3200 sf building on a quarter acre of land. Owner will lease the premises for $1500/mo.
Competition: The company has a strong reputation and hasn’t received a complaint in 35 years. They take on any job, big or small, and are very customer oriented. Equipment is included in the sale, and the business is turnkey.
Growth and Expansion: The opportunities to grow this business are many. Landscaping is a service that cannot be automated, and residents and businesses coming to the area will require initial installation of their landscapes as well as continued maintenance. This business has many long-term accounts and has turned down many potential clients. They have never advertised, so advertising to businesses and residents would certainly increase accounts, as would creating a website.
