– Owner, Landscaping Company in North Carolina
If you’re a landscaper, there is an endless amount of people that need your services. And in today’s digital age, people turn to Google and other online search engines when looking for professional landscaping services more than ever before. Word of mouth will always be the best form of marketing because nothing speaks louder than a satisfied customer speaking to someone they know, but people now trust Google search results and reviews as much as they trust the opinion of their friends and family.
Whether you are a landscaper who specializes in landscape design, installation, maintenance, or the complete array of services, it is essential to have a website that represents your business in a professional manner. Websites that are aesthetically pleasing and easy to navigate can be driving forces behind new customer acquisition for landscaping companies. Landscaping companies with outdated websites and websites that don’t appear in online search results are missing out on tremendous revenue potential. But landscaping companies that invest in cutting-edge websites that rank at the top of online search results for landscaping-related terms generate new customers on a regular basis. This is because people can find their business online, verify if the business offers their desired services, and subconsciously develop trust for the business because of the smooth and professional first impression that was created. Next, they dial the phone and schedule an estimate.
What is SEO for Landscapers?
SEO for landscapers is the process of implementing search engine optimization (SEO) on a website for a landscaper or landscaping company to reach the top of the first page in Google search results. When best SEO practices are followed, it allows Google and other online search engines to understand and trust the landscaping services that the business offers. And when Google trusts a landscaping business, it will show its website in the top search results for relevant landscaping search terms in the geographical area that the business operates in.
Landscaping search terms are called “keywords.” Keywords are the foundation of any successful SEO campaign, and the content and technical components of your website should all be optimized around the keywords most relevant to your business. At Reach One Local, we have worked with 100+ landscaping companies to help them reach the top of Google search results for their desired keywords. A few common keywords for landscapers we have worked with in the past include:

How Do You Appear at the Top of Google for Landscaping Searches?
In order for your landscaping website to appear at the top of Google search results for your targeted keywords, the website must be built with these keywords as the foundation for its structure. In other words, every page of your website should be created around a specific keyword that you wish to rank for. Everything from the textual content of the page, to the technical aspects such as the title tags, Heading (H) tags and page slugs, to the linking structure, menu structure and so much more should be built and optimized around the landscaping keywords you wish to rank for. If you are a landscaper that provides full landscape design and installation services, created a dedicated page for that service optimized around the best keyword in your local area. If you also offer lawn mowing, hedge trimming and mulching, have a dedicated and optimized page for each one of those services, too.
In addition to building your landscaping website in an optimized structure, you must also create and optimize a Google Business Profile and online directory listings to maximize your potential of dominating the online search results. When all three of these things are built and optimized to their fullest extent, Google begins to understand what your business specializes in and trusts that you provide quality service to your customers. And when Google trusts your business, it shows your business at the top of search results for the landscaping keywords related to your business in the areas that you serve.

What are the Best Landscaper Web Design Options?
If you run a landscaping business anywhere in the United States, it is essential that you have a professional website for your business. Businesses with modern, up-to-date websites generate exponentially more leads and customers than businesses without. Websites help to attract new customers through online searches (if properly optimized), provide one location for new and existing customers to find all of your information, and immediately build trust with future and current customers in today’s digital age. But the best option for building your landscaping website will depend on the goals for your website.
There are three primary options if you are in the market for landscaper web design services:
- Use a DIY website builder such as Wix or SquareSpace
- Find a young freelancer willing to work for cheap (or free) to gain the experience
- Hire a professional landscaper web design service
If you have the time to invest and the interest in learning to build your own website, there are several DIY website builders that you can use. Wix and SquareSpace are among the most popular, and they offer templates to choose from to make the process as smooth as possible. This is the cheapest option, and the most time consuming. Additionally, if you don’t understand SEO for landscaping services, you may find it difficult to get your website to appear in online search results. But if you aren’t concerned with having your website generate leads for your business and you the have time to build your own website, this may be the best option for you.
If you’re limited on time or don’t have the interest in learning to build your own website, but you are also working on a tight budget, you may be able to find a young freelance website designer that would be willing to build a website for your landscaping business at a discounted rate, or even for free. This may require tapping your network or making a post on your social media accounts to find someone in this situation, but it can help to save your business money. The downfall is that the functionality of your website will be limited to the designer’s capabilities, and it will be difficult for your website to appear in online landscaping search results if the designer isn’t also implementing the full array of best SEO practices. But, like with the DIY website builders, this may be the best option for your business if generating leads and new customers isn’t something you need your website to do.
If you do want your website to generate leads for your landscaping business, the best option is to hire a professional web design and SEO consultant or agency. Having a state-of-the-art website that appears at the top of Google search results will not only make for an incredible first impression for anyone who visits your website, but it will allow your business to appear in front of consumers searching for landscaping services during their very moment of need. This is the best possible time to reach a consumer, and it’s the power of building a landscaping website with best SEO practices in place.
