Why we just can’t train you in two weeks

Starting your business will be a challenge, therefore, it’s essential that we provide thorough, quality training right from the start. We will need to ensure that you not only understand each aspect of your lawn care business but that you are also proficient in delivering a consistently high level of service to your customers.Therefore we take your initial and ongoing training very seriously.Your initial training will take place over a three week period and will include modules on the following topics:

  • Quality lawn care
  • Effective lawn nutrition
  • Recognising problems and resolution
  • Understanding your market
  • Initial marketing of your business
  • Providing lawn care quotes for your prospective customers
  • Ongoing business marketing
  • Promoting to your customers
  • Communicating with your customers
  • Provision of great customer service
  • Treatment scheduling
  • Accounting and general admin
  • Health & Safety
  • Machinery maintenance and handling


Your initial training is focused on helping you fully understand the entire process from the initial establishment of your business to learning the technical know-how you will need to understand how to create great lawns. We will also train you to market and promote your business so you can quickly recruit new customers. At every stage, we ensure that you have fully understood each topic and if in doubt additional training will be scheduled.

When we designed our initial training our aim was to achieve it in two weeks, which is the standard within the UK lawn care industry. But we just could not do it in two weeks, we would have had to scrimp here or there, so we extended our training to three weeks. An extra week is a small price to pay to ensure you really are the leader in your local lawn care market, we think you’ll agree.


Scott Harrison - Lawnscience Franchise

I love the freedom to decide how to plan my day and to know that I am directly rewarded for my efforts. That’s one of the big advantages of working for yourself, you can manage your time as you see fit and you don’t have to justify your time to anyone except yourself. I became quite cynical about the corporate environment in the build up to leaving my old role and starting my business. I felt that many people were starting to ‘get it’ that working for yourself in a small business strips away the layers of bureaucracy and puts you directly in front of the customer. My business has grown into a multi van operation and I expect it to grow further into one where I will have financial freedom to decide how I live my life and with a eye to the future I’ll be able to offer financial support to my children
