Interested in Starting Your Own Business? Mr. B’s Has an Opportunity for You!

Many of us dream of starting our own business, but few of us actually start the process. It’s costly, it takes a lot of time to build up a base of customers, and the paperwork can be overwhelming. But if you do get your own business up and running, the benefits are undeniable – you can set your own hours, your earning potential is virtually unlimited, you can make your own decisions and tailor your business to your lifestyle.

Learning from Mr. B’s Experience

At Mr. B’s, we’re excited about helping those who are interested in starting their own businesses or becoming independent contractors. We’re looking for individuals with a strong work ethic, drive, determination and a desire to succeed!

Mr. B’s was started by Brian Bush in early 1991, when he started mowing lawns while still in high school. From those beginnings, Brian has grown five successful businesses employing over a dozen employees and several independent contractors. Brian wants to take the business skills he’s learned over the years and pass them on to the next generation of entrepreneurs, giving them the opportunity to set themselves up as small business owners in their own right.

We’ll take you through every phase of establishing  your own business, including making sure you file the proper federal, state and local paperwork, assisting you with getting the right insurance, creating a marketing plan, establishing a customer list and finding the right financing options.

Six Great Reasons Why Outsourcing Your Company’s Lawn Care Is A Smart Idea

“Your company will appreciate not having to deal with the many problems that can arise if you’re doing your own grounds keeping.”

Your business’s outward appearance can make an instant impression on clients and customers. If you’re properly maintaining the grounds and keeping the plant life thriving you can make an excellent first impression, but this can be time-consuming and expensive. Outsourcing the grounds keeping to a professional lawn service may be the ideal solution, particularly if you need year round grounds work such as mowing in the summer and snow shoveling in the winter. There are six great reasons your company should outsource your lawn care that can save you time and money:

 1. No Need to Tie Up Capital – The cost of purchasing, fueling and maintaining lawn tractors, edgers, a snow plow and other equipment can be significant. Add wages and benefits for a grounds crew and you’ll be tying up a significant amount of money.

2. It May Be Tax Deductible – Because maintaining your property is a business expense, the cost of hiring a professional lawn care service is tax deductible in most cases. You’ll love the deduction when tax time rolls around. Be sure to ask your tax consultant how much you can deduct.

3. No Training Necessary – Properly training your grounds crew and keeping them up to date on the latest innovations in everything from weed control to irrigation can be expensive. You also won’t have to worry about providing safety gear or the appropriate clothing to your grounds keepers.

4. No Workers’ Compensation Concerns – A worker’s compensation claim can put your company in a bind if someone on your grounds crew is seriously injured on the job. There is a relatively high rate of workers’ compensation claims filed by grounds keepers because they do heavy lifting and repetitive tasks.

5. Compliance Issues – Lawn care is expensive in part because you have to keep up to date on current compliance issues. Your company will need to know what the current regulations are on proper use of fertilizers, weed killers and more so that you are in compliance with federal and state laws regarding potentially hazardous chemicals.

6. Lower Cost of Supplies – The cost of fertilizers, weed control products and other products needed to maintain an attractive lawn can be cost prohibitive. Professional lawn services, however, buy these products in bulk at reduced prices and they will pass some of that savings on to you.

In addition to the six great reasons outlined above, your company will also appreciate not having to deal with the many problems that can arise if you’re doing your own grounds keeping. No need to make sure your employees are mowing the grass regularly, no need to call someone in the middle of the night to get a snow plow out to clear your parking lot after a heavy snowfall. Simplifying your lawn care has never been easier – just contact Mr. B’s Lawn Service or Penn Turf to schedule a time for a free estimate. We’ll do the hard work for you!

Timing is crucial for correct lawn maintenance and treatment. Over the next few weeks, PennTurf and Mr. B’s will be making the rounds for our loyal customers to begin the first spring lawn treatments. Each treatment addresses specific needs for western Pennsylvania lawns, including white grub control, and appropriate fertilization.

PennTurf carefully spaces each lawn treatment at approximately 6 week intervals for maximum effectiveness. Each treatment is tailored to the type of problem, the area of the country and more. These may contain seasonally selected combinations of fertilizer, broad leaf weed control, and pre-emergent crabgrass control.

This week and next we will be concentrating on a powerful but safe blend of fertilizers for improved green and increased turf density so that the roots will be stronger even during future dry stretches.

A second application six weeks after the first one will balance fertilizer that focuses on both color and strong growth. There will be an inspection of the lawn and a customized weed control treatment applied. If there are any indications of broad leaf or grassy weeds present, PennTurf and Mr. B’s will also pay careful attention to these.
