The Next steps to owning a lawn care business

Owning your own lawn business might be an option for you, here are the next steps

If you think that owning your own lawn business might be a good opportunity for you, we’d recommend that you take your time and learn as much as you can about the business before making any commitment, it’s a big commitment and one not to be rushed into.

We’d the following steps.

Arrange a no-obligation chat on the phone or via zoom

On this website, we’ve tried to provide you with an overview of the opportunity and the business. But a website can never cover off all the points for each person. Everyone will have different issues and concerns. We suggest the first stage of really understanding the business is to arrange a short no-obligation telephone call in order that we can answer any questions you may have at this initial stage. We can also help you decide if this type of business might be a good choice for you. It isn’t for everyone.

It’s simple to arrange just send Terry an email at and he will arrange to have a informal telephone call with you.

Attend on of our Zoom presentations

Starting your own business is a big step, not to be taken lightly. You should learn as much about the business and how Lawnscience operates as possible. Armed with this information you will be far more likely to make the right decision for yourself, whether that is to proceed further or not.

Our zoom presentation will give you a clear understanding of what running a lawn business really means. We’ll show you what you will be doing on a daily basis, the challenges you will face, and how you can grow your own business to the size that suits your financial goals and lifestyle choice. The presentation will also raise some areas of the business that you might not have previously thought of, if so we can discuss these in detail and answer any questions that might occur.

Check out the competition

If a business is a good opportunity it will have competition. That is certainly true of lawn care franchising. We’d encourage you to talk with our competition, understand what you get when you join Lawnscience and compare it to our competition. It’s also very important to understand the range of treatments you will be able to provide as a member of the team

It’s also important to understand the cost of establishing your new business. Different franchisors will charge different initial investment costs, some as high as £29,000! Some will make a profit on you just joining them, others will not. Therefore you really need to know what you are getting for your investment. We can send you a business establishment cost report which shows you the true costs of starting your business with Lawnscience. This is a really useful document to have when talking with the industry, you will be armed with the true setup costs and can explore with each franchisor their costs structure and, if appropriate, why their costs structure is higher, none will be lower, that’s a promise.

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.
