The Lawn Care Market

Did you know that 87% of households in the UK have a garden?

That equates to over 23 million gardens in the UK where your services could be delivered.

As such, the demand is huge and growing as over 100,000 new homes are built in the UK each year. Your territory potential grows year on year.

But what else impacts the lawn care market?

Digital Era – with advances in technology, finding and hiring a reputable lawn care business has been made simple through our online customer journey. With the help of our presence on Google, social media and various review platforms at the consumer’s fingertips, it has become quick and easy to hire the right lawn care provider in just a few clicks.

Increase in working from home – It may sound odd but it is expected that the increase in people working from home will actually create even further demand for lawn care, Why? Put simply, if you’re spending more time at home, you’ll want to enjoy your surroundings. Being able to look or go outside to enjoy your lawn is simply a luxury most consumers want to enjoy.

Growth in disposable income – With household disposable income on the rise, it’s no wonder that based on all of the factors above, lawn care services are no longer an extravagant luxury but an affordable way to maintain a beautiful lawn all year round.

Cleans the environment – Customers can do their bit for the environment by having their lawn taken care of. Lawn grass helps to clean the air in which we breathe by trapping carbon dioxide, decreasing noise pollution and reducing ground temperatures.

What You Need

As well as a love for the great outdoors, to be a successful TruGreen business owner, you will need discipline to follow a proven business model and the drive and ambition to prosper in a competitive market.

Communication and organisation skills are essential in building a loyal customer base. Our most successful franchisees possess these skills in abundance.

As experience is not necessary, you will need to be open to learning about your new vocation to build up your sector, brand and business knowledge.

The TruGreen franchise is a full-time commitment, as such, you’ll need to dedicate much of your time to the business in the early days to build a solid structure to foster a strong culture for growth.

With up to 100% finance available to many (subject to status), financing your new venture could not be more affordable. You do need to be financially secure whilst your business finds its feet in the early days, meaning that you can reap the financial benefits in the future.
