  • 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.

  • Can I Talk With Your Current Franchisee Before I join?

    Of course, in fact, we insist that you do. Starting any new business is a big step we feel that the more information you have BEFORE you make the decision, the better.

  • What Do I Need for a Lawn Care Business?

    Before anything else, starting a business requires confidence in yourself and your abilities as a business owner. If you have the drive to make your business successful, you’re already most of the way there. We supply the rest!

    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.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • What is The Cost of Becoming a Franchisee?

    From £12,474 +VAT, you’re getting the lowest cost for a lawn care franchise available, in addition to a whole host of incredible business training and support resources.

    You’ll receive two weeks of lawn care and business administration training, have access to 24/7 support, get marketing and business resources, a permanent and protected territory to work in that’s yours alone, and optimised websites from the start. This helping hand is more than many start-ups would be able to achieve for the same price. We’re only able to offer it as we’ve been an established brand for over 17 years.

  • Is there a catch?

    No. We’re offering this training, support and marketing franchise opportunity to grow our own brand across the country by supporting you in breaking away from a regular 9-5 job and becoming your own boss. After all, that’s where Lawnscience started, to begin with and we feel it’s a good mission to work towards. It wouldn’t make sense to have a catch!

    If you’re unsure about a certain aspect of the franchise business, please feel free to call or contact us and we’ll talk you through it. Call 01908 504 664

    These are the questions that our customers ask most frequently.
    What our clients say...
    Nigel is always prompt and helped me keep on top of treatments for a newly laid lawn. Certainly takes the hassle away of burning grass etc when trying to add treatments yourself. Very good value for money. Nice guy.

    Lawnscience provide a service of feeding the grass and killing the weeds and moss that are in all lawns. The treatment varies depending on the time of year. By using Lawnscience a minimum of four times a year our lawns have shown a vast improvement.

    What our clients say...
    Nigel approach to the job was very efficient and he took the time to explain everything properly , must say that my grass is much healthier than it was before and to top it up the cost it is very affordable.
    Mr Monteiro
    What our clients say...
    Felt sure the only remedy for our new house builder's lawn was to rip it up and start again! Nigel showed us other potential less drastic options and has made them a reality. Glad we consulted Nigel then, and very happy to continue to use…
