Quality training is essential, if you are to meet your full potential

Starting your business will be challenging, therefore, it’s essential that we provide thorough, quality training right from the start. We ensure that you understand your lawn care business and can deliver a high level of service to your customers. Therefore we take your initial and ongoing training very seriously.

When does your training start

Your training starts before you join us for the start of your formal classroom sessions. You will be the owner of one of the UK’s premium lawn care business. You need to understand the psychology behind your client’s decisions, enabling you to provide your service at a realistic price. Therefore a little pre-reading will be required.

What our training covers

There are six key subjects that your training will cover, they are;

Lawn botany

Understanding how to create great lawns is key to your ability to transform and maintain your customers’ lawns. Our technical training will ensure that you understand the grass plant and how to achieve a healthy lawn. You’ll how to identify weeds, lawn pests, and fungal diseases and how to eradicate these potential issues. Some people can be concerned with the technology behind the service we deliver but there’s no need to worry, we’ll take your training at a pace that allows time to learn the technical aspects of the job.

Practical

Knowing what needs to be achieved is of little use if you don’t know how to achieve it. Our practical training module will equip you to competently use and maintain your new equipment, enabling you to make the necessary changes to your customers lawn and the soil beneath them, resulting in improvements that will delight your customers.

Customer service

It’s service that differentiates the best lawn care companies from the rest of the crowd. It’s why our customer service training module goes deep into the various aspects of customer service and how you can make your business stand apart from the crowd. Being the best service lawn business in your area will position you to make above the average returns from your business.

Communication

People who are new to the industry can be forgiven in thinking that is it a simple business with little need for quality communication. It’s not true, a key aspect of the business is the quality communication you will have with your customers. It’s this communication that will set you apart from the majority of your competition, lead to more satified, loyal customers and increase your sales and profit.

Systems

When we started our business over 20 years ago we quickly realised that having the best software system would give us a tangible advantage, in service and profitability, over our competition. That’s why we invested in the world’s leading software system to dive our business. The systems module will ensure that you can take full advantage of our system providing you with the ability to drive efficiency into your business.

Marketing

You can have the best lawn care business in the world but if knows one knows about it you’re not going to make much money. The ability to market your business will be the drive behind the underlying profitability and growth of your business. During our marketing module, we’ll share with you the lessons we have learned over the past twenty years along with today’s latest strategies to develop your new business.

For the first five years of my business, I worked as a single van operation, gaining considerable experience in running the business and getting the best out of my customers’ lawns. I took the decision to upgrade my business to a "multi-van" operation a year ago, recruiting my first employee. Now my main area of focus is marketing and growing the business. I can see me recruiting another employee within the next twelve months. I now own a business where I earn more than I did when employed, but with the advantage that I now have a work life balance and more time to spend with my growing family. I've never looked back.
