According to IBIS World, an increase in construction for 2014 will also drive up the demand for lawn care services as the year progresses. Wise Business Plans, one of the leading providers of business planning services in the country, is helping landscaping companies form and expand to meet that demand.
"The recovering economy is planting seeds for growth in many differing industries," said Joseph Ferriolo, director of Wise, which helps companies around the world plan for success. "But companies that provide services to those other businesses are reaping the rewards."
This is especially true for landscaping service providers, he said, because they offer a service few business owners feel like they can tackle themselves.
"Proper landscaping and lawncare are more daunting to most people than we realize," he said. "If your business doesn't present a professional appearance at first walk-up, you will absolutely lose potential clients or customers."
Because of this, the industry offers ever greater potential for success, he said, but turning it into something sustainable takes planning. That's where Wise comes in.
