If you’ve been thinking about starting a Canberra landscaping business, there are many things to consider. You need to consider whether or not it’s the right choice for you and your family. You also need to decide if it will be profitable. In this article, we’ll discuss some steps that can help you get started in the Canberra landscaping industry.
Step 1: Decide on your landscaping niche
When starting a landscaping business, it’s important that you have a niche that appeals to people in your area. For example, if you live in Canberra, then your market may include more people who work in the city than those who live outside of it. If this is the case, then your niche might be limited to those who work at local companies or whose jobs take them into the city regularly (such as salespeople). In addition, make sure that your niche has enough demand for you to become successful and stay around for a long time.
Step 2: Get a business name
Think about what you want to do and then put it in writing. This will help you focus your efforts, which can be difficult when you are just starting out. Write down what you want to do and how you plan on making it happen. Then, start researching business names that fit your needs. You may find that you already have a name that works, but if so, make sure it isn’t taken by another company.
If there are no obvious choices, use an online service like NameCheap or Easyspace to search for available domain names (the Internet address of your website.) You can also check with local businesses or search the U.S.-based Naming Committee on Uniform Resource Locators (ucrld.org) website for available domain names.
Step 3: Choose an ideal location for your business
As mentioned previously, it’s important that your business location is accessible by people who live nearby and/or work within close proximity of where they live. This means being within walking distance of public transportation stops.
Step 4: Apply for planning approval
You will need to apply for planning approval if you wish to develop land or build structures on it, and this application process can take several months or even years before approval is granted or denied by council planners and/or local council officers who determine whether planning applications are appropriate for the area in question at any given time (see Planning Approval Processes).
Step 5: Advertise your business
The next step is to come up with practical marketing strategies to promote your services. Ensure you are reaching your target audience so people can know of your Canberra landscaping company and services it offers.
