I'd run my own business for 8 years before starting my Lawnscience business, so it was no great change for me. I find running my own business tremendously rewarding, I am building something for myself that has long term earnings potential, I don't mind working hard to achieve this. I particularly like the fact that I am in control and whilst I'm busy all the time doing things like business development I really enjoy it. I don't think there are any 9 to 5 jobs out there nowadays and I'd rather be working the hours developing my own business rather than somebody else's. I have a medium term plan for this business which will give me more control over my future. In the short run I'm working very hard to get it established but even now can decide 'how much work' I take on at certain times of the year. I plan to go multi-van next year and continue growing my business. A full- time employee will no doubt present some challenges but also tremendous opportunities. I always enjoyed management so hopefully it's another area of the job that I'll adapt to. If you've never run your own business before then think carefully about whether it's for you. Self-employment makes the good days so much better, but there will be challenging days. You need self-motivation but the training here is excellent so how busy you are will be down to you.

What Do I Need for a Lawn Care Business?

Since proper lawn care requires much more knowledge than the average gardener has, we provide the training and lessons you need to know to become a professional lawn care expert in only three weeks.
We also provide a number of extremely useful benefits for starting your business with us, including your own personal working territory, advertising and even leaflets to help you find your first customers.
Why Start a Lawn Care Business?
There are hundreds of benefits to starting your own lawn care business. First of all, you become your own boss, responsible for your own profits and time, and getting the full reward out of the work you put in.
Secondly, having the ability to work outdoors, get fit and healthy, and care for lawns and gardens is something that many consider to be a weekend hobby, instead of a something you can earn money for! Working outside means you get to enjoy time outdoors while earning a more-than-respectable amount too.
Finally, being able to manage your own time means your job is flexible to your needs, not the other way around. If you want to grow your business into a multiple-employee enterprise, you’re free to do so. If you’d prefer to keep things simple and take jobs when they come in, you can do that, too.
Are There Downsides To Starting A Lawn Care Business?
Like any specialised industry that requires training, lawn care businesses require you to have a deep knowledge of botany and the self-motivation to make your venture successful. Our lawn care business training resources are designed with this in mind, providing you with pin-sharp business management advice and marketing, while also teaching you how to properly care for any lawn, regardless of size or its state.
You’ll be able to avoid the main stumbling blocks of any new lawn care business owner and, with a little hard work, be able to make your business profitable within the first year!
How Much Money Can My Lawn Care Business Make?
That’s up to you! Growing your business can take time, but our training and business resources help you make it profitable in the first year, without the usual problems that other lawn care businesses run into.
If you want to keep things simple and manage your own time, you’re able to. If you’re getting more customers than you can deal with, we’ll show you how to get your first employees to help you manage the workload and update you on changing your business type to suit. Whatever the case, your earnings will match the time and effort you want to put in.
Lawn care is not a one-off job, either. Lawns require regular maintenance, so you’ll get repeat customers throughout the year.
OK, I'm Interested in Building My Own Lawn Care Business. Now What?
We’ll send you a prospectus detailing the process from start to finish. We’ll then call you to introduce ourselves and make sure we’re both happy to work together as partners. This is a 100% no-obligation process.
We’ll arrange a date to meet at our headquarters in Milton Keynes to discuss the business in further detail and answer any extra questions. You’ll be able to talk to our other partners to see what they think of working with us, too.
We’ll then work with you to create your protected working area based on your local knowledge, get your contract in order and signed, and then your training will start.
You’ll have access to our support, marketing resources and advice, but how you run your new business is up to you.
We look forward to working with you!
