One good way to make some extra coin is to get some Formablok forms and make your own landscaping blocks (have them filled at your local ready mix supplier out of waste) and make some basic hardscaping structures, walls, stairs, fire pits, planters, ect.

A landscape business can be lucrative, since there are plenty of homeowners who don't have the time, energy or skills to take care of their yards and design garden features. Beyond the basic gardening services like mowing, weeding, and fertilizing, you can work as a landscaping designer or do advanced installations and planting. If you have a green thumb and can do heavy labor, finding out how to start a landscaping business is the first step toward working at a job you love.

Establish your business. You will need a good business plan to manage your finances and set yourself up legally.

Figure out your pricing. In order to hire you, most customers will want to get an estimate for how much the job will cost.

Get proper licensing. Every state is different, but there are a variety of business and professional licenses you may need to obtain. Some of the more common regulations that touch on landscaping work include.

Make a business plan and stick to it. Be sure to include a budget for your company marketing. Then call, e-mail and Facebook everybody you know and tell them you are now in the lawn care business. Ask them to tell everyone they know.
