Four Reasons to Start a Landscaping Business

Have you ever arrived to work one day and thought to yourself: “This isn’t what I want to do with my life.” Well, you’re not alone. Millions of Americans are unhappy with their current employment but are content to stay because of the stability it offers. Why not have both?

Not only does starting your own landscaping franchise offer you an opportunity to join a professional, blooming industry, it gives you the chance to make a good living and do something you love, outside. No more cubicles and walls in your future.

If that’s not enough to convince you to join the Driven Landscapes franchise system, here are four reasons we think you should consider.


The prospect of working outside may not appeal to all people, but the freedom a landscaping franchise can offer should. As a franchise owner you are able to set your own schedule, establish a base of employees you can count on and work as a hands-on or hands-off executive. You're the master of your own destiny, and the amount of time you put into your business will dictate what you’re getting out of it.

Large Market

The National Association of Landscaping Professionals reported a booming growth in 2015 for the landscaping industry, leading to 80 percent of landscaping contractors describing the state of the market as very healthy. Those same landscaping contractors were optimistic about the future market outlook.

Low-cost Investment

The price of all this is one of the lowest cost options in the franchise sector. With an minimum initial investment of around $50,000 to join the Driven Landscapes family, you can consider a variety of financing options including personal credit and loans to get started. Plus, Driven Landscapes will help you with your business startup with lawn care franchise support, assist in your market analysis and provide you expert advice on the landscaping technology and equipment.

Customer Demand

There are approximately 75 million aging Baby Boomers in the United States, many of whom own their homes. One thing about this population demographic is they recognize the value of a well-kept lawn and beautifully landscaped yard, but as they continue to age, are unable to maintain it to their standards. This is just a sample size of the customer demand currently in the landscaping industry.
