This business will contemplate a 50-50 equal partnership.

Registration

We have registered the name of the business with the Department of Trade and Industry and Local Government Unit.

Target Market

XYZ will focus on middle-class residential areas and 4-star Hotels. We believe that this type of market is more likely to benefit from our services and it will also be helpful for hotels and homeowners to avail of our expertise for their lawn and garden planning.

Market Analysis

According to the research carried out for our company, homeowners have big lawns but don’t have the vision or the skills to design their space according to their wishes. The same is the case with hotel chains. Our analysis shows that the following market needs to be tapped:

  • Constructors of commercial and residential properties who do not have their own staff of landscapers
  • Homeowners who don’t have the expertise or tools to design their gardens
  • New homeowners who wish to modernize the present landscaping
  • Homeowners who want to sell their houses and want to enhance their property with updated and restructured landscaping.

Marketing

We are planning to advertise in all mediums, print, Internet, Social Media, and Radio, about the business. We will print ads in all the local newspapers and place ad banners on the internet to make people aware of our business services. Also,

  1. Website: We will create a website about the XYZ landscaping business. We will mention all the services that are being offered, along with the prices and offers.
  2. Social media pages: We will create social media pages and advertise our services.
  3. Newspaper: We will advertise in local newspapers to develop visibility for the XYZ Landscaping business.

Office Location

The location that we have chosen is on Sunset Boulevard and the shop number is 5.  It is a 3,000 square feet shop available next to ABC stationery shop and we think it is an ideal location to set up our office for XYZ Landscaping business. The rent is reasonable and there is not much work needed to turn it into our required space. All the expenses for the office space renovation will be endured by the owners of XYZ.
