Case Studies

Ben – Landscaper based in Geelong

Ben started his business during COVID in general maintenance and landscaping. Over time Ben started specialising in landscape construction and while Ben was winning plenty of work (booked out for more than a year!), he was working 60 hour weeks, buried in admin work and wasn’t earning what he knew he could.

We worked with Ben and

    • Helped him define his target market
    • Created improved systems and processes to streamline admin tasks
    • Improved the way work was quoted to improve margins
    • Worked with his supply chain to gain better commercial terms.

    Ben now earns more, works less and has a clear strategy of where the business is targeted.
