Nature of Business Landscape Care & Design Services
City San Angelo, Texas
SBDC Business Advisor Paul Howard
Evan had been working for a local nursery as a crew foreman and enjoyed his job, but felt as if he was not using the education he obtained. He has a degree related to this industry so he wanted to branch out on his own and start his own lawn and landscape company.
Evan was new to San Angelo so he came to the Angelo State University • Small Business Development Center for assistance. He met with Advisor Paul Howard and they discussed his business idea. Paul determined Evan needed a business plan and suggested he develop one to help direct him. He continued his employment, but worked on his business plan in the meantime and the time came for him to start his own small business. Evan said, “Having just moved to San Angelo, it was essential for me to learn about the local economy as well as its rules and regulations. The classes and instructors have been wonderful in helping me decide if and when to start my business.”
Paradise Lawn & Landscape is now serving San Angelo and the Concho Valley. Evan can not only maintain lawns, but can determine specifically what lawns need to be lush and beautiful. The business created one new job.
