Why landscapers should send professional invoices

Illustration of invoice being sent

You have the creative vision and horticultural expertise to transform an empty space into a paradise of flowers and trees. You are passionate about working outdoors and creating beautiful, living spaces – but it is still hard work. You deserve to be paid fairly and quickly for your specialized expertise.

That means your invoice must clearly detail the physical work you do, as well as your creative and technical skills. It also needs to be flexible enough to capture the unique landscaping requirements requested by each customer.

Your invoices should also look as attractive as your landscaping work. A well-designed, organized invoice adds to your great reputation as a professional landscaper.

How to fill out your landscaping invoice

Once you've downloaded your free invoice template, you'll need to customize it to fit your specific business. Here are the 10 key things to include on your invoice:

  1. Title and Description: Name the project and briefly describe what type of work your client is being invoiced for.
  2. Company Details: Add your company name, address, phone number, and logo to the top-right corner.
  3. Customer Details: Under "Bill To", add your customer's name, address, and contact information.
  4. Invoice Number: Include a unique invoice number to help you track down this invoice in the future. You can format this based on sequence and customer. For example, if you're sending your very first customer their first invoice,  the invoice number could be 001-001.
  5. Dates: Include the date when your invoice has been issued and the date when payment is due.
  6. Line Item: Add individual line items for each unique good or service you provided. For each line item, include a brief description, quantity, individual unit price, and total price.
  7. Subtotal: Add up the subtotal of your goods or services, before tax has been applied.
  8. Tax: Indicate the tax rate applied to the subtotal. This is legally required to provide on invoices, and your rate may differ depending on where you run your business.
  9. Total: Outline the total amount due from the customer, after tax.
  10. Notes: Include any additional info your customer should know, including terms of service and payment terms (for example, payments are due 30 days after the invoice has been issued).

When is the right time to send an invoice to your landscaping customers?

Since landscaping can be a large job that takes many weeks, or even months, many landscapers ask for a percentage of the cost up front, with the remainder when the landscaping is completely finished. This helps you pay for supplies, any additional contract work or labor, maintenance of equipment, and the wages of any crew members you need.

If you are on retainer for your landscaping services, invoice at regular intervals to keep the revenue coming in. Whatever payment method you choose, make sure it’s clearly noted on each invoice, and clarify what portion of the final ‘cost’ has been paid to date.
