How to Start a Landscaping Company

by on October 17, 2012

If you love the outdoors, and always seem to let your creativity run free, then starting a landscaping business can be a great way to live your dream, and indulge your passions on a daily basis.

Beginning a landscaping business is simple, but requires a lot of work. The overhead costs can be low, and with patience and consistency, your landscaping business can grow into a business to reckon with in a few months. To become a landscaper, you do not really need to go to school, you just need to be a hard worker and let your creativity run free. You can’t be worried about getting dirty or can’t be worried about hard work, but if you keep at this business, you will eventually have an edge over thousands of other upcoming landscapers. Landscapers in Maple Valley are a different breed of workers. When you live in a large residential area, the competition can be fierce.

To start your landscaping business, you need to first check out what tools you have and what tools you will need. Quite often, the tools found in ones shed are usually enough to get started. A lawn mowers, rakes, shovel and loppers are some of the basic tools that you will need, but if you find that you do not have some fancy tools, try and make do without them. This is simply because when starting out, your cost need to be as low as possible, and if you do not really need a tool, then do not buy it.

The next thing that you need to do is simply find a means to haul your tools to all work locations. An old truck can work well as you begin and you can even label it with your business name, as a means of advertising.

Lastly, you need to begin promoting your landscaping company to anyone who cares to listen. Friends and relatives are some of the first people you need to talk, and then you can slowly include your local gardening club and even church groups in your advertising endeavors, since you can never advertise too much in any business. Referrals are a huge aspect of this business.

If you are consistent in the quality of work that you offer, your business will soon be promoting itself, and you will be laughing all the way to bank courtesy of your new landscaping maple valley business.


Keeping your whole body healthful and in shape does not need to be hard. The simple fact is always that most of the time keeping yourself in good health is little more than doing a few small things on a regular basis.  So many people wait around until they are woefully out of shape or facing serious illness to try to figure out how to get in shape or return to a former level of health. If, rather than waiting around, they adopted just a couple of good habits, keeping healthy wouldn’t be such a challenge. Keep reading to determine a few of the little things that you can do to stay healthy.

Eat a number of fish more than once per week. This may very well be in the form of some tuna fish at lunch or some fish for dinner. Fish have large levels of omega-3 acids which, we have discovered, are essential to our health. Eating fish routinely just might help you stop heart disease, Alzheimer’s, and other serious problems. If you do not like fish or are hypersensitive to it, you will get the same rewards from taking omega-3 capsules a couple of times each week.

Did you realize that humming can defend your ears? The act of humming activates a muscle in your ears that can keep sound from getting in. It isn’t the same thing as wearing earplugs (which you should do if you intend on taking in a loud event like a concert or car race) but it is less dorky than plugging your ears with your fingers. You have to stay away from noisy activities for at least a day or two after you go to a very loud event. Your ears remain hypersensitive for the first 24 hours after the first exposure to extremely loud sound.

Do your exercise sessions on your feet when you can, especially when completing your weight training. Standing up when you exercise as well as lift weight will induce your ab muscles to support your spine and keep you in a balanced upright position. This ensures that you’re actively working out your abdominal muscles the whole time you are doing your weight lifting.

Write everyday.  No matter what you write about be sure to do it everyday.  Say you are going to write about… I don’t know… anything.  Write as much as you can about the topic.  Just get it on paper and then your scribbles turn into masterpieces.  Writing is like woodworking. The more you do it the better you get.

You have to have a Sonicare toothbrush. You know the fact that Sonicare toothbrush is the very best toothbrush on the market, electric or not. Yes it costs a great deal of money but it is most likely the best investment you can make into your dental health. Not only will it enable you to clean your teeth but it helps you get rid of the plaque between your teeth (it uses sonic waves to do so) just like you would do manually when you floss. People who can’t stand to floss particularly will advantage from use of a Sonicare toothbrush.

There are plenty of small alterations that you could make to improve your health. No matter if you buy earplugs or hum at concert or even buy a better toothbrush–good health is yours for the taking. All that actually matters is you start making wise decisions about the every day things in your life–you should be able to do that.



Edgar Allen Poe!

Edgar Allen Poe!

Did you know that Edgar Allen was an avid wood craftsman? He would often construct wooden items for his home and poems. He learned woodworking from local friends.  When he was just a teen he made many nifty things and later on decided he liked it so much that he continued to work with wood.

You can see his passion for wood work throughout many of his poems. You should read back through some of them and see if you can find the correlation. It is pretty neat when you really find it.
