There’s 3 factors that come into play when I quote landscaping maintenance.

1.) Itemized price
2.) Hourly
3.) Gut feeling

I add all 3 prices, then divide it by 3.

(after a while you don’t even have to do the math, it just comes to you)

By a stop watch and start timing everything.
Create a standardized price sheet in excel so you can have a reference on how much your prices are.
YES, I under-quoted many times and STILL DO.
YES, I’ve let customers take advantage of me.
YES, I have ADD and Low Self-esteem
YES, I feel like a piece of crap because I don’t have nice cars and a fancy house to come home to.
YES, I have horrible anxiety issues and constant racing thoughts.

BUT……
NOBODY CARES!
And…
No One is ever going to save you so get to work and get that business off the ground.

I went from a broke minded employee with zero money to invest to starting my own landscaping company.

My last year as a landscape foreman I was stuck in a dead end job, made $24,000 and barely had enough to make the bills let alone pay off debt and student loans.

Coming home to eviction and shut off notices and fighting with my wife over money problems.
I remember being out to eat at a restaurant with her and some friends one evening and I was in so much financial anxiety over the bills that I excused myself into the restaurant bathroom and had an emotional breakdown.

Then…

My friend Dave taught me some valuable small business tips that changed my life forever and in only 6 weeks I was making enough money following his advice doing side jobs that I replaced my income and ditched my grass cutting job.

My first year in business I doubled my income,
2nd year doubled it again, 3rd year even more than that.

Finally, I’m humbly here to teach you the methods I learned
to end the suffering and start your own dang landscaping company.

The Landscaping Employee Trap

Whether you dream of starting your own lawn care, snow removal or landscaping business. It’s all a lot easier than you think.

You don’t need $20,000, a big bank loan or 5 start credit.
All you need is a will to win.

With a basic understanding of even shrub trimming, tree service, horticulture, garden maintenance, arboriculture, flowers, botany, gardening or any of the above combined with a will to succeed it’s all very possible.

    Lovely Video! Sorry for butting in, I would love your initial thoughts. Have you considered – Patlarny Fit Yourself Principle (Have a quick look on google cant remember the place now)? It is a good one of a kind guide for starting your own landscaping business minus the hard work. Ive heard some pretty good things about it and my best friend Jordan got great results with it.

  8. Will Keyworth on November 4, 2021 at 10:40 am

    time and materials is the fairest to you and your clients. i charge $60 an hour and if they don’t like it they can go elsewhere

  9. MR. Green Thumb Lawn Response on November 4, 2021 at 10:41 am

  10. UA6JJ on November 4, 2021 at 10:43 am

    I’m in my first month of Landscaping, I figured out how much to charge but how determine how many weeks of service is confusing… please help

  12. Mike Wilkinson on November 4, 2021 at 10:46 am

    OK so back on planet earth you would score 1 job per year at these prices. The owners of these houses are on 1300 per day they ain’t paying you same to chop bushes

  13. David Harris on November 4, 2021 at 10:46 am

    Keith how do you compensate door knocking and door hangers when 90% of neighborhoods have no soliciting rules??? I utilize Craigslist and Facebook and soon (hopefully) I can start more internet marketing. But I prefer door to door, I feel I get good results. But most doors have the no solicitation sign right on it, usually I knock anyway and sometimes it’s good but sometimes I get yelled at through the door or the ring device lol???

  14. David Flanagan on November 4, 2021 at 10:47 am

    Your videos are incredibly awesome and spot on. Rich people tend to be the cheapest also as a side note

  20. BBMoney007 on November 4, 2021 at 10:58 am

    This is accurate but prices are 1/3 what they should be

  21. Robert 33 on November 4, 2021 at 10:58 am

  24. Lefty Bronson on November 4, 2021 at 11:00 am

    Make a video of telling the customer his total for the full trim will be about $7,800 😂 after adding your calculations -I think you may have exaggerated your prices 😂 😆

  25. mkll on November 4, 2021 at 11:01 am

    I have a discount code for Jobber.

  26. Jay Chatfield on November 4, 2021 at 11:04 am

    I just came across this video.. were in the same area.. I service Oakland and Macomb Counties. I personally think you’re over priced on the trees and under priced on the hedge and shrubs. Maybe it all works out in the end… appreciate your videos brother specially the ones about your boy Eric. lol THAT dude is doing shit right.

  27. Deangelo Scott on November 4, 2021 at 11:04 am

    Man I need you to be my coach fr

  29. Juan Barreto on November 4, 2021 at 11:05 am

    Excellent video content! Forgive me for butting in, I am interested in your thoughts. Have you researched – Patlarny Fit Yourself Principle (Have a quick look on google cant remember the place now)? It is a great one off guide for starting your own landscaping business without the headache. Ive heard some incredible things about it and my mate finally got cool success with it.

  30. Darrell V on November 4, 2021 at 11:06 am

    Keith I Love Your detail and pricing. Question for you, do you need to get a special diploma, certificate or course to back your business? Do people ask you what your credentials are for trimming, plant, shrub and tree care?

  31. Andrik Pozos on November 4, 2021 at 11:09 am

    Dam thats nice pricing id prolly do that whole house for 80$😂 everyone tooo stingy here in gwinnet georgi

  32. Tony Cowser on November 4, 2021 at 11:09 am

    Wow, you’d get no business here in Missouri. Lol

  33. Hank Daniels on November 4, 2021 at 11:10 am

  36. Malinois Nation on November 4, 2021 at 11:13 am

    Grow weed instead of pulling weeds. 😉

  37. teeduck on November 4, 2021 at 11:14 am

    Your prices are ridiculously high. Plus you didn’t even crown thin the trees.

  38. Adam Davis on November 4, 2021 at 11:15 am

  39. Keith Kalfas on November 4, 2021 at 11:16 am

    Put in a search on YouTube and you popped up. Im a Veteran, and currently cut another retired Veterans yard. I think this business will do well for targetting baby boomers, elderly and disabled. A lot of rich elderly and disabled folks living in Mansions

  41. mufo zomby on November 4, 2021 at 11:17 am

  48. Berly Montejo on November 4, 2021 at 11:27 am

  50. Matthew Spickett on November 4, 2021 at 11:28 am

    I’m confused on how you price for hauling off debris.. what does 1 yard mean is that a 3×3 or someone’s whole yard
