What Does a Lawn Care Business Do?
You would offer the following core services to residential customers:
1. Lawn Fertilizing
2. Lawn Weedkilling
3. Lawn Moss Control
4. Lawn Aeration
5. Lawn Scariﬁcation
6. Lawn Pest & Disease Control
7. Lawn Care Advice and Repairs
Work is not seasonal, but is carried out all year round. Consumers enter into a regular arrangement of lawn care, with your business visiting and treating their lawns approximately every 10-12 weeks – this is a repeat business model.
The business can be as big as you want it to be, servicing a few hundred
or several thousand lawns on every cycle.
The Lawn Care Market Potential
THE UK LAWN CARE INDUSTRY IS LARGELY UNTAPPED WITH ONLY 3% OF POTENTIAL CUSTOMERS CURRENTLY BEING SERVICED
THERE ARE 20 MILLION HOMES IN THE UK WITH A LAWN.
Would you like to beneﬁt from the knowledge and experience of an Industry Leader with a background of 20 years spent in the lawn care sector? Jeff Williams the founder of Lawnrite helped develop the lawncare industry and was responsible for the establishment of over 200 lawn care businesses, which have gone on to generate more than 500,000 lawn care customers throughout the UK.
Training with Lawnrite will give you access to a tried and tested model of running a proﬁtable and successful lawncare business. Our huge buying power will reduce your costs for fertilizers, herbicides, vehicles, print, uniform and a host of other business supplies.
Your business will grow quickly if you chose to take advantage of our national and local advertising.
In addition, access to our industry speciﬁc bespoke software LawnriteOnline (which is FREE for the ﬁrst 12 months – Basic module) will accelerate the growth of your business, save you money and help you deliver ﬁrst in class customer service.
TRAINING AND SUPPORT
Our training encompasses both theory and practical, equipping you with the knowledge and skills required to begin your business with conﬁdence. We are available to provide direction and assistance at no extra charge in the early stages of you business, and provide software support as standard. We will also provide on-going assistance through the various stages of the development of any Lawnrite afﬁliated businesses, by means of on-site conferences, telephone support, and regular business webinars for example. Field visits are also available upon request.
Start your business from home to keep your set up costs low, and buy your business assets when you need them.
Starting up on your own without a support network is one of the more difﬁcult routes to setting up your own lawncare business. Training with Lawnrite, however, and taking advantage of our buying power, marketing support, business manuals and LawnriteOnline software (FREE for the ﬁrst 12 months) - all without any of the obligations and on-going costs that come with a franchise - is the best and most proﬁtable route for any one who wishes to start their own lawncare business.
Lawn care businesses range in size from a few hundred customers to several thousands. A typical customer will spend between £100 - £200 p.a with your business. A franchised business would pass 7% - 10% of this income straight over to their Franchisor just for the privilege of using the Franchisor’s brand name. As an independent business you wouldn’t have to pay any form of license fee to anyone. After all expenses your business will return between 25% - 40% net proﬁt if managed efﬁciently. We will be able to demonstrate the earning potential of your business at one of our Discovery Days and will be happy to assist you in drawing up your own business plan.
