5 Services to Market to Your Customers This Spring

1) Traditional Spring Yard Cleanups –  Customers always like their landscapes to look their best to start the season.  Always offer a specific spring clean-up visit where your crews can pay extra attention to leaves, branches, spring pruning, bed edging/mulching and more. Professionals report these cleanups are significantly more profitable than in-season mowing services, so start early and book as many as you can.

2)  Irrigation Start-Ups  –  Systems restart is always best left to a professional.  Refilling the pipes incorrectly can damage components. Plus a trained pro can evaluate coverage, verify operation and program the controller correctly.

3)  Pre-emergent for Beds  – A great way to reduce customer complaints about weeds in planting beds is by applying a pre-emergent.  You’ll find beds will stay dramatically more weed free than just treating weeds as they sprout with Ranger Pro.  We recommend SureGuard SC as a proven option.

4)  Pest Repellents – We’re seeing growth in contractors offering pest repellants to control deer, rabbits and mosquitoes. Ask about options used in your area.

5)  Specialty services – Contractors are having success with seasonal color, gutter cleanouts, driveway sealing, and lighting fixture LED re-lamping. You can sell these services to be done after spring cleanups.
