Landscaping Keywords: List of 386 Keywords for Landscapers

Landscaping Keywords Overview

Search engine optimization (SEO) along with paid search advertising are two essential components in effectively promoting your landscaping business on the Internet.  When someone enters their search term into the Google or Bing search engines, ads appear near the top, and the organic search results appear below the ads. Both require relevant keywords to reach your target market.

A successful landscaping SEO campaign will require writing unique content around keywords that are relevant to the services that your landscaping business provides. Local SEO is a subset of SEO that focuses more on ranking in the Google Map Pack. You can use these SEO keywords to enhance and better define your Google Business Profile listing (formerly Google My Business).

Search advertising for landscaping contractors is the process of creating (pay-per-click) PPC campaigns to get your advertisement in front of potential customers precisely at the time they're seeking your landscaping services. You will use these keywords within the text of a Google Ad, and as keywords within ad campaigns. When someone conducts a Google search, the goal is for your ad and your organic listing to appear prominently in the search results.

Both digital marketing strategies are able to bring landscaping leads to your website where you'll have the opportunity to convert a potential customer into a paying client.

Search for Your Personal Keywords

In this article, I'll first talk about the methods and tools that you can utilize to locate more keywords to add to your landscaping campaigns.

Utilize The Keyword List We Have Keyword The List

At the end of this article, I will give you 386 terms related to landscaping services. You can modify these for your own purposes and use them in your own search engine marketing campaigns. You can also utilize the keywords as a start point for search engine optimization to bring more people to your website for free.

Keyword Research Tools

Find Keywords that you can use for your landscaping SEO and Paid Search Campaigns

Notice that in every example I'm using a single seed keyword such as "landscaping contractor". While this is a decent starting point, you'll want to get deeper into your landscaping services when using these tools.

For example, you'll want to try keywords like “sod installation”, “inground sprinkler installs”, “paver patios near me”.  Enter variations of all of your services into the tools for the best results.

Mangools KWFinder

KWFinder is a paid service that begins at around $29 per month however, they offer the option of a free trial for 10 days.

With Mangools the user enters their keyword, location, and language, and it will provide a wealth of data that can be useful for SEO as well as PPC purposes. While the actual data won't be 100% accurate (only Google has access to 100% accurate data about search queries) but the data can assist you in selecting the correct keywords.

Mangools Results of KWFinder for "landscaping"

In this case we picked "landscaping" as the keyword, and then set the location to "The Woodlands, TX" (1). By default, it shows Related Keywords (2).

It is also possible to change the settings between "Autocomplete" or "Questions". Writing content for websites around Google Autocomplete or Questions is an effective SEO Strategy. These are usually lower volume keywords that have little in the way of competition thus allowing you to gain an organic flow of web traffic (free) to your company website.

Keyword Table (Left Panel)

Under our search are the keywords returned in the keyword table

Keywords (2) - They are the key words you may want to look over to use in paid search and SEO-related campaigns.

Search (3) -The monthly average volume of searches for the past 12 months , based on parameters of the search (searches for "landscaping" for The Woodlands, TX). We can see that roughly 430 monthly people are searching for "landscaping" in The Woodlands, TX.

CPC (4) - CPC shows what the expected cost for each click for the keyword within Google Ads paid search. Also, using an example like the landscaping example, you'll see that the estimated cost per click could be around $9.06. It's just an estimate however, the price per click in your advertising campaign will be different depending on a variety of factors, including the position of your ad and the geographical location where you’re running ads. If we look at the numbers, it's safe to say that bidding on "landscaping" with an approximate CPC of $9.06 will probably be more costly than bidding on "backyard design" for $1.73.

PPC (5) - PPC shows how difficult the competition is for paid search ads.  100 is higher and indicates extremely competitive bidding.  0 indicates very little competition and likely much lower click costs.  The PPC value of 16 shows that the advertiser competition is on the low side according to KWFinder - which actually kind of conflicts with the rather high CPC cost of $9.06.

KD (6) - It is the keyword difficulty and is used for SEO purposes. For landscaping, the keyword difficulty is 33 - which is "Possible" which means it's a struggle to rank but it can be done if you have a sound SEO strategy and lots of good quality content on your website. Higher KD values are harder to get to rank high up in the search results. The KD for many keywords isn’t provided.  You can click on the magnifying glass to reveal the KD for those keywords.

Keyword SEO Data (Right Panel)

The right-hand section contains SEO data for the keyword which is highlighted in the left-hand panel. This panel shows the keyword difficulty highlighted once more (7), along with Search Engine Results Page (8) overview.

What it does is give you a list of Google autocomplete suggestions based on the keywords that you provide. Here, from "Keyword Ideas Tools," (17) and using the default search settings (18), I entered “landscapers” as a seed keyword (19) and clicked on the “Sheet Keywords” button. (20).

Search Engine Optimization and PPC Keywords for Landscapers

Based on my experience and the use of the tools listed above, here is a starting set of 386 landscaping keywords to think about using for your digital marketing efforts.

It's not a complete list, and you should do your own keyword research to find terms that are relevant to your business.

Qualifiers

Remember that for paid-search campaigns, it is necessary to include qualifiers for some of the phrases below.

Location qualifiers

For example, a lot of people are searching for "near my home", "my area" or their location (e.g. "new patio design and install Albuquerque"). So, for certain landscaping keywords, you could want to include city names that you service (or the "near me" qualifier).

Price qualifiers

You’ll see below that there are a lot of price-related keywords.  I probably don’t have to tell you that landscaping customers that completely dialed in on price usually aren’t the best.  The best customers are willing to listen to what makes your services so much better than the competition that they’ll be getting incredible value - not the cheapest deal around.  You get what you pay for - and spending a lot of time trying to optimize or bid on price-related keywords usually isn’t the best.  You don’t want to be known as the cheapest landscaper around.  It is much better to be known as the best landscaper in your town.

Negative Keywords

Many of the terms below are pretty popular searches for customers seeking landscaping services. If you're not offering one of the popular services or products are shown below, you should choose to make it a negative keyword in Google Ads or Microsoft Ads.  As an example, If you don’t do inground sprinkler installations, you probably want to make “sprinklers” and related terms negative keywords.  You don’t want ads for your business appearing for landscaping services that you don’t offer.
