Put simply, commercial landscaping tends to be more profitable. Most residential landscaping, for instance, is done on an as-needed basis, so customers don’t sign long-term contracts. But because U.S. Lawns provides a suite of important services that meet a variety of needs, our customers can plan for the future and sign on to meet long-term goals. Additionally, because business owners need to factor in safety as well as aesthetics, commercial clients typically need more services than residential customers.
Handling larger jobs can be a better use of time and resources, too. Many of our conversion franchisees who initially struggled with the idea of transitioning from residential services quickly found that once they’d implemented our time-tested business model,
they made far more profit by focusing on commercial clients. Furthermore, the fact that we stick to commercial landscaping helps to minimize competition.
Owners and managers of retail spaces, office and apartment complexes, restaurants, and more, are responsible for making sure their properties don’t just look good but are safe for people to visit. They set aside significant budgets for that purpose and can’t afford to overlook lawn and landscape maintenance because they know first impressions always matter, and safety is never not an issue. What this all adds up to is a highly recession-resistant industry.
U.S. Lawns goes one step further by offering a wide range of services that are in demand in the commercial landscaping sphere. These include:
Landscaping services, in general, are a huge market, with a 2022 U.S. industry size of $115.6 billion that’s expected to increase by 0.9% during this same year. The commercial sectors of the landscape maintenance and snow removal industries represent roughly $70 billion in annual revenue, with some experts speculating that growth is a result of the burgeoning housing market. This isn’t just good news for residential landscapers – U.S. Lawns franchisees do a lot of business in places like multi-family apartment buildings, condo complexes, and homeowners’ associations.
Snow removal services, in particular, are becoming increasingly popular among landscapers, and U.S. Lawns has been offering them for years, making up a significant part of our franchisees’ revenues in seasonal markets. Expert snow removal is just one way we stay up to date on important services, helping our franchisees keep a competitive edge. We also help them access the latest in equipment and supplies through our national network of vendors and suppliers.
Of course, countless businesses outside the housing industry also enjoy our services. U.S. Lawns is relied upon by customers of all types, including:
These properties count on us to catch the eye of prospective customers and keep grounds safer for visitors, employees, and residents, meaning our services should stay in demand for many years to come.
