3 Common Mistakes Made by Lawn Care Business Owners
Running a lawn care business can be very rewarding, but it comes with some unique challenges.
Jobber Academy teamed up with Jason Creel of the Lawn Care Life YouTube channel to cover some of the most common mistakes that lawn care business owners make.
3 Common Lawn Care Business Mistakes:
Mistake #1: Often, lawn care business owners don’t start with a plan. If you want to be successful in the lawn care business, you need a general idea of where your business is going and what it should look like in a few years from now.

Mistake #2: Lawn care business owners understand how to handle the day-to-day, but don’t understand how to market their business. Jason recommends being a student of marketing: look both inside and outside the lawn care industry for marketing inspiration.
Mistake #3: A lot of lawn care business owners don’t want to let go of the work and want to control every single aspect of their business. You’re limited in the amount of money you can make if you want to control all of the work as the owner.
