One of the keys to proper internal Search Engine Optimization and SEO marketing is placing your location within your website in text. Many clients that I have worked with were lacking in the placement of their local or geographical area. The location (address, city and state) should be in your footer and on some of the pages themselves.
Many neighborhoods have homeowner’s associations that charge a fee if your yard does not look good. Even if you think it looks decent, the HOA may disagree, in which case you get charged. If you do not pay, you can get a lien on your home and extra fees, so you have no choice unless you want to take the HOA to court. It is not usually worth the fight, which means you may have to be on the lookout for a few weeds out of place, or grass that is taller than the HOA would like. This depends on your specific HOA and how strict it is, but in most neighborhoods, you will have to pay a fine if you never landscape your yard.
The very first thing you need is customers. Without them, you don’t have a company. How can you make those clients come to you? There are many different inexpensive ways, such as flyers, which you can print on your own printer, business cards that you can pass out to people around local shops and malls, your Blcyardworks logo which you can put up on your own vehicle, and more. Don’t forget to call everyone you know to tell them about your new company and ask them to refer clients to you.
For most people, cost is a factor. You may want your yard to look like a tropical oasis but your budget will dictate the type of plants, how many you can have, and even what other extras you can include. Before starting a landscaping project, whether on your own or with professional assistance, you need to come up with a budget. How much money do you want to spend?
Do You Personally Know Anyone In The Business. Many home owners or business owners are familiar with their local area and may already know of a contractor perfect for the job. If not, you can simply take a stroll around your neighborhood or spot a commercial space that has a design you approve of. Ask questions like: was the project done on time? Was the staff knowledgable and friendly? Could you get references if you asked for them? Were they available for renovations or maintenance if it was needed?
The push reel mower came to the rescue from the tedious scythe in 1830. This mower was invented by Edwin Beard Budding, an English engineer who in a fabric factory saw a machine that could be adapted for cutting grass. The environmentally friendly push reel mower is still highly used and sold in present day.
The rotten landscaping contractor syndrome is a big problem in most cities and towns. It’s a shame but I do make a great living fixing all the landscaping messes they leave behind. So while it’s a good thing for me, it’s not such a good thing for you. Always do your homework and make your own choices. Don’t let someone else do it for you.
