New Landscape Business Trends for Existing Customers
Californians are looking for a change, your customers are looking for a change. They’ve been maintaining their yards and paying the price for high water consumption for years during the drought.
They need a better way…
They need a yard that is less maintenance.
While it will still require monthly upkeep, the cost of their overall budget will improve because their water usage will decrease. In addition, the improvements and changes being made may be tax deductible for your clients, adding an even bigger bonus.
Leading landscape business trends include installing drought-resistant yards. Not only will this positively impact your clients, it can have a major impact on your landscaping company.
Maintenance on drought-resistant yards is still needed and when you add this element to your business, you have the potential to bring in new clients who are looking for the same savings and changes to their lawns.
