Description:
Blacks Business Brokers are pleased to bring to the market this gardening, grounds maintenance and landscaping business located in Bolton, Lancashire.

INTRODUCTION
Country Landscapes Limited has been trading since 1991 when our client founded the business. Country Landscapes Ltd. is a family firm undertaking gardening, grounds maintenance and landscaping of small or large gardens and grounds. Over three decades, Country Landscapes has worked for many public sector and well-known organisations including; Housing Associations, the BBC, Community facilities, sports clubs, museums, national health service, small commercial business to international companies and trading estates, private/domestic clients, residential/retirement villages, schools, play areas and community projects.

The business has an enviable reputation and is known for their delivery of high quality and dependable service and they have achieved many accolades over the years including;
3x Investor in People accreditation - quality training
Bury & Bolton Business Awards for Customer Excellence - Commended
Construction Line - GOLD
Acclaim - Safety in Procurement

Many of Country Landscapes customers have been using the companies services for over a decade and that includes some local authority clients and many more routine, regular maintenance contracts including some winter gritting.
During 2020 the business has worked safely throughout the Covid-19 Pandemic and has had a "business as usual" approach which has led to many new clients coming on board with them.

LOCATION
The business is relocatable as it is currently operated from residential premises but it is worth noting here that they are currently based in Bolton and cover a twenty mile radius including Burnley, Bolton, Salford, Bury, North Manchester and Ramsbottom and a new owner would not necessarily have to be based in the area to operate the business.

REASON FOR SALE
This opportunity has become available due to our client’s other business interests and therefore this is an excellent opportunity to acquire this well respected business.

STAFF
Both our clients are supported by three part time members of staff.

FINANCIAL DETAILS
The business delivers a steady turnover and for Year End October 2020 the turnover of the business was £84,912 returning a gross profit of £73,357. The business is operated to fit into our client’s lifestyle and therefore this presents a new owner with an excellent opportunity to build the business and increase the revenue stream.

BUSINESS RATES
The business currently benefits from Small Business Rates Relief.

SUMMARY
Country Landscapes Limited is a well respected gardening and landscaping business that originally started in 1991 and has continued to deliver steady revenue over its trading history. The business has a number of contracts in place. The business does not actively advertise for new business as income is generated from, referrals and repeat business. Therefore a new owner could certainly develop its reach by expanding its social media presence. Due to the well-established professional standing of the company, there is also scope to substantially increase turnover due to numerous web site enquiries bringing opportunities to quote for small contracts from installation of artificial turf, management of Japanese Knotweed to larger Civil Engineering projects such a retaining walls or housing / estate landscaping projects. The business currently operates through Monday to Friday and certainly if the new owner was to extend the working days this would also increase the revenue. It is rare for a family business of this calibre to become available on the open market and therefore we do anticipate a speedy completion for this well respected business. Early viewings are advised.
