"The Lawn Service & Sprinkler Experts"
NJlawn & Irrigation has been in Business since 1995.††
This is a real business where hard work and dedication is rewarded. The opportunities for growth within the irrigation industry are unlimited. †There are no restrictions. Our target market is vast, including residential and commercial properties or anyone that has a lawn to water.† This is a true niche market protected by a specific skill set and supplier discount structure unmatched in the industry.† Our unique business model offers fast and easy access to the quickest growing sector of the North American economy: "Lawn and Garden Care". †Where else can you recover your entire investment in the first year of operations. †
At the end of the day, your hard work in the irrigation industry will be rewarded. You are growing a business which will acquire assets and grow a customer base.† Revenues will continue to grow each and every year as long as you are installing systems. Each system requires annual maintenance to start up in the spring and close it down in the fall. You charge for each of these services as part of a maintenance contract. Your revenues will continue to grow each season. As you increase your client base, the value of your business will also increase until it is time to retire and/or sell the business to a new prospective franchisee. Certainly more attractive than getting a pink slip from another Fortune 500 company filing for Chapter 11. You are now in control of your own destiny.
Irrigation has become a necessity for many residential and commercial projects. In the residential sector, we target homes ranging from $200,000 up to $2 million. We have installed a front yard system for a trailer owner in a trailer park along with the million dollar estate where irrigation represents a very small capital expense when compared to hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of landscaping.†† We have even installed an irrigation system for Goldie Shawn and Kurt Russell at their cottage in the Musk district, a $10,000 irrigation project.†† We have installed over 4000 residential systems.†
Residential Jobs range from $ 1500 to $5000 in value.
The commercial sector continues to surprise with growing demand for irrigated lawns and gardens. Home Depot, McDonald's and Wendy's restaurants to name a few, all have irrigation systems. We have installed close to 1000 commercial systems.† The commercial sector continues to be a leading area for growth.† ††Many of these commercial projects will be tendered by the General Contractors at the time of construction.
Commercial Jobs range from $5,000 to $50,000 in value. †

The first year of operations is the most demanding. It will take time to learn the business, train your crew and get comfortable with the installation process. A very conservative projection for your first year sales would be as follows:
A. Residential Sales : on average each residential sprinkler system sells for $2500. The typical job takes 2 days to install. You should target your residential sales to be 40 jobs in the first year of operations.
$100,000 Revenue over 80 work days.
B. Commercial work: on average will sell for $7500 per job and take 5 days to install. Expect to install 3 commercial jobs your first season.
$ 22,500 Revenue over 15 work days
C. Service Revenue: will grow each season as your customer base expands. ††††††††††††††††††††††††††††The typical service call billings range from $50 to $200 for 1 hour/2 hours of work.
** A more aggressive plan would call for 60 residential installs = $150,000 and 5 commercial installs = $37,500†††† Total revenue $ 187,500.
People are constantly making changes to their landscape, adding shrubs, installing pools, fences and decks. There is constant demand to move and repair sprinklers. By your third year of operations your margin of profit will increase as your service base grows. The goal is to install as many jobs as possible each season and to grow your service base as quickly as possible. Once you have reached a 300 customer base, you will be well on your way to healthy income and an ongoing retirement plan which generates income each and every season.
