Description About This Posting: Landscape Hardscape Design Construction Company
This thriving and profitable family-owned and operated landscape design and construction company was started 70 years ago, and the company has earned a sterling and consistent reputation for reliability, excellence, and quality.
The area served is the very exclusive and prosperous western hills of Santa Clara County in Silicon Valley, with residential owners being customers for decades, returning over and over with lucrative contracts. The company enjoys over one million dollars in annual sales with virtually no advertising everything comes from organic, word-of-mouth referrals.
The business operates as a well-tuned team who have worked together for years, with trained, experienced management and personnel (13 employees) to execute all the required design, demolition, construction, and agricultural aspects of the most complex and demanding projects.
Furthermore, the seller would be open to staying involved indefinitely in a design and planning, and general consulting role, at the option of the buyer.
The business operates from a 4,000 sq. ft. warehouse, with favorable rental terms, that houses all the vehicles and tools that are required to operate. The landlord is open to negotiating a favorable long-term relationship with the buyer if wanted.
Annual sales are about $1.1 million. Seller estimates that the Seller's Discretionary Earnings ('SDE') are approximately $140,000 to $150,000 for 2018. Sales for 2019 are already trending significantly higher than 2018, indicating SDE in 2019 much larger than 2018. A serious buyer may discuss these particulars directly with the seller.
