Inflation is the secret killer that is literally eating your into your profits EVERY SINGLE YEAR! It is expected that inflation could get to 3-4% over the next few years and that means you MUST raise your prices or risk losing your profits!

The inflation rate has hovered around 2% for the past couple decades... however with the influx of stimulus money and changes in monetary policy this could change!

You must raise prices in your lawn care business to cover your increased costs of labor, material, and TAXES!

Will robot mowers impact your lawn care business?!

THREATS

1.) Large tech player coming in to the industry for the sake of data

2.) Machine prices going down for the robot purchase

3.) Improved technology of the robots

4.) Large mowing-only properties that don't require high levels of Customer Service

OPPORTUNITIES:

1.) Robots cant edge, blow, weed, install mulch, or trim bushes

2.) Mowing is our lowest margin service

3.) This could help with the labor issues we have and finding good employees in the lawn care industry

In this live Q&A I discuss if you should take on biweekly mowing Customers OR just stick to weekly service ONLY. Here are 6 things to consider when it comes to offering bi-weekly mowing service:

1.) Charge 50% more for biweekly (not $5)

2.) Share weekly and biweekly mowing prices UPFRONT so there are no surprises

3.) Sell weekly as a "discounted" price... not that biweekly is an "upcharge"

4.) Tell biweekly clients that if the grass is X inches high or more then there will be an upcharge

5.) Biweekly is a great DROP SALE

6.) Depends on how big your business is... are your trying to simplify?

Here is the real cost of owning a zero turn mower. Make sure to do your due diligence and run the NUMBERS before making a purchasing decision. DO NOT allow emotions or pride to interfere with making good BUSINESS decisions!
