If you’re thinking about starting a new business, then landscaping could be an exciting industry to move into. Indeed, landscaping services are projected to enjoy a 5.7 per cent increase in 2022 as demand increases. Plus, you get recurrent, seasonal income; an easy business plan to follow; opportunities for expansion; and flexible management options. Below, we explore the different ways you can start your landscaping business.
Hydroponic landscaping is a growing trend. This refers to the process of growing plants in mineral solutions rather than by using soil. The benefit of this is that – once set up – hydroponic plants are easier to maintain and care for. And by setting up a hydroponic landscaping business, you can advise and help set up hassle-free gardens for clients.
Holiday Garden Care
Holiday garden care is another service you can set up. Have you ever gone on holiday worrying about what will happen to your plants and garden without regular watering and care? By getting a holiday garden care service in, you can have peace of mind that your garden will be cared for while you’re away. By working on this niche, you can set up a productive new business.
Plant Finder Service
A plant finder service can be an exciting business to set up. This is where clients present you with a list of rare flowers for you to source for them. It can take a while to build up the reputation to attract clients to your business, but with careful, meticulous work, your new business can thrive.
Offering hedge trimming services can be a good way to start a new landscaping business too. To begin with, you’ll need to invest in a cordless hedge trimmer to efficiently get through all your jobs quickly. However, it can be worth investing in the training and practice time to get used to forming different hedge shapes with the trimmer. The more experience you gain in this industry, the more intricate jobs you’ll be able to complete.
Interior landscaping is the process of gardening in an indoor environment. And by starting an interior landscaping business you’ll be able to offer consulting and maintenance services to clients looking to boost their indoor gardens. Interior landscaping has different techniques and practices compared to traditional gardening, but with research and experience, you can begin to offer professional services to clients.
Landscaping has plenty of niches and markets for you to capitalise on with a new business. As long as you have some basic knowledge of gardening and an appetite to learn more, you could potentially set up a successful and profitable landscaping business.
