Offered for sale is the business entity and real estate, including all tangible and intangible assets for this very highly regarded and successful landscape management company.  This company is an all-season landscape and property maintenance organization serving homeowners and businesses in New Hampshire.  The company offers complete landscape design, installation services, and maintenance for flower gardens, lawns, walkways, driveways, patios, and decorative and retaining walls.  They also specialize in irrigation installation and maintenance including spring start-up and fall blow-out.  In spring, summer, and fall, services include planting, soil cultivation, annual and perennial care, weeding, dividing, transplanting, pruning, edging, mulching, fertilization, pest management, deer netting, plus much more.  Property maintenance is also a large part of this company's business, including seasonal clean-up, gutter cleaning, storm damage repair/clean-up, mowing, trimming, aeration, and weed/crabgrass/disease/insect control. Winter services include commercial and residential snow plowing, snow blowing, and snow and ice treatments for walkways, parking lots, driveways, and roads.  Winter services also include snow removal from roofs, decks, patios, and docks.
Competition:Generally speaking, there are myriad small, one or two-person landscaping and property maintenance businesses in the area in which this company operates who mow, plow, and do some minor design work, but very few that are as large and as diversified, and who also provide winter services. It is fair to say that this company has captured a solid share of the larger commercial and high-end residential market in its operational area. There are a few competitors who vie for the same types of accounts as this company, but this company’s longevity in the market, solid reputation, long-term relationships with clients, and the ability to provide winter services has kept them ahead of the market share curve.
Growth Potential:The business has grown exponentially over the past 20+ years as the market has continued to expand with an affluent client base. In order to properly service their clientele and foster those relationships built over time, the company has made a conscious effort to remain relatively small in nature. The opportunity to grow the business is abundant and as a winter service provider, the business has an edge over competitors which has happened by accident more so than design. The opportunity to grow this winter business is huge if a new buyer chooses to concentrate more on marketing these services. As the business is predominantly referral based and has successfully operated with their solid reputation due to long term relationships with clients, this business has an opportunity to expand their customer base via marketing and social media. This would provide a more extensive reach to outlying communities for all types of services, giving ample opportunity to the future owner. The land occupied by the business could be utilized for multiple uses such as firewood production/sales or storage, storage/sale of landscape inventory (mulch, brick, pavers, stone, gravel, lumber), potential for excavation to clear additional area for future buildings/retail sales or storage. With proper staffing, the business could further expand in landscape/hardscape design to further enhance the beauty of the affluent community Currently, many of the processes utilized in the office are manual in nature. Business could be further improved with automation in the back office, technology for the landscape crew and foreman as well as central GPS for the fleet (which current owner has investigated).
Training/Support:The current owner is willing to stay on and train for two weeks after the transfer of the business at no charge and may be available for a short time on a paid consulting basis should that be important to the buyer. The seller is willing to sign a non-complete agreement for 5 years and 50 miles.
Seller Financing:Seller is willing to provide limited terms to a qualified buyer based on the strength of the deal.
Sale Reason:The seller has been operating this business for 20+ years and is ready to start something new. He
