3 Things You Might Not Have Known About Commercial Landscaping

The commercial lawn care services business is booming, and now is a better time than ever to open a franchise of your own. U.S. Lawns has been in business since 1986, and we have three decades of experience helping new franchisees to get their landscaping businesses up and running. We're the perfect choice of partner to get you started in this exciting business! If you're thinking of partnering with us, check out these interesting facts about the commercial lawn care services industry below:

#1. Commercial vs. Residential Services

U.S. Lawns deals exclusively with commercial clients. If you're new to the business, you might be wondering why we choose not to accept residential work as well. The fact is that commercial landscaping has a number of advantages over residential landscaping. For one thing, commercial properties need our services -- we help them to maintain a comfortable and professional appearance so that their customers and residents have an enjoyable experience on their property. For them, our services are a necessity, while residential customers often see landscaping services as a luxury that can be eliminated when their budget changes. Furthermore, commercial clients work with us based on a contract, helping to give our franchisees stability and predictability. Residential clients, on the other hand, often pay as they go for services with no contract, making it difficult to predict how long they'll be a client for.

#2. The "B2B" Model

Another interesting fact about our business is that we operate within the B2B (or "business to business) model. That is to say, we offer our services directly to other businesses rather than to the general public. Working with other businesses has a number of advantages, not the least of which is that they need our services. Because we provide necessary services, businesses are less likely to terminate our contract when the economy changes. This makes our business more secure when it comes to ebbs and flows in the economy.

#3. A Five-Year Plan Helps Us to Build Relationships

When you become a U.S. Lawns franchisee and begin to offer commercial lawn care services, you'll help your customers to develop a five-year plan for their landscaping. Many people don't realize the level of care and maintenance that goes into even simple plants. You'll help you clients to develop a five-year plan that takes into consideration the life cycles of the plants they choose, the changing seasons, and much more. By working hand-in-hand with your clients to develop this plan, you'll establish yourself as a trusted partner when it comes to the beautification of their property, and you'll demonstrate to them how important it is that they think long-term about their landscaping needs. Building relationships like this is the key to keeping long term clients, repeat business, and positive word of mouth as a business owner.

These are just a few interesting facts about commercial lawn care services. With more than 30 years in the business, US Lawns has the experience to guide you as you break into our business. Contact us today to learn more about becoming a franchisee!
