Why lawn care professionals should send great invoices

Illustration of invoice being sent

You make the world a more beautiful, green place. You love what you do, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy. You should be paid fairly and promptly for your lawn care and gardening expertise – so you need an invoice that clearly details the labor required by you and/or your crew, as well as all the associated costs for planting trees, flowers, and grass.

No cookie-cutter invoice will do, as no two jobs are ever the same. Your invoice needs to be flexible enough to capture the specific requirements requested by each customer.

Your invoices should also look as great as your work. A well-designed, professional invoice adds to your outstanding reputation.

How to fill out your lawn care 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 lawn care customers?

Instead of invoicing on completion of the service, many lawn care professionals ask for a percentage of the cost up front, with the remainder when the service is completely finished, or at each maintenance interval.

If you are on retainer for your lawn care or gardening services to a corporate client, or to a city or municipality, you might want to 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.
