U.S. Lawns: More Than Just a Lawn Mowing Franchise
February 05, 2018
If you’re in the market for a post-military career—or a career change of any kind—working in the great outdoors probably sounds like a good use of your skills, so owning a business in the landscaping industry is a smart choice. U.S. Lawns is a leader in landscaping, and we are so much more than just a lawn mowing franchise. Our owners can offer their customers a variety of services as they grow their franchises into large, scalable businesses.
Commercial Landscaping Services
One of the many things that sets U.S. Lawns apart in the industry is that our franchisees work exclusively with commercial clients instead of doing residential landscaping. By only doing commercial landscaping, our franchisees enjoy a variety of benefits:
- Larger contracts mean a few commercial clients drive more revenue than several residential clients
- Commercial clients have property maintenance budgets that they need to spend where residential clients pay for landscaping as a luxury
- Professional landscaping has a positive impact on businesses, incentivizing them to contract with a pro
In order to serve their commercial clients fully, our franchisees offer complete landscaping solutions. Although the bread and butter of our lawn mowing franchise is caring for turf—mowing, trimming, edging, fertilizing, weeding, etc.—we train our franchisees on the full variety of our popular services.
Some of the services we offer include:
- Landscape maintenance
- Landscape improvements
- Tree care
- Snow and ice management
Scalable Business Growth
The thing that has made U.S. Lawns the No. 1 commercial landscaping franchise is that we know how to scale your business into a large enterprise. We have a long history of putting people in business and then teaching and supporting them as they grow. Simply put, we are as invested in you as you are in us.
From the start, we teach you what you need to know about owning a business, managing a team, and being a leader. The key for us is to find the right franchise owners who can lead their crews and put in the work to grow their businesses, regardless of previous work experience. In fact, we have franchise owners from all backgrounds—veterans, teachers, business executives, retail managers, lawn care professionals—and through their hard work and our training they have been able to build up a strong business.
The golden egg in the U.S. Lawns franchise system is our Roadmap to Success. Our most useful and comprehensive tool, the Roadmap is exactly what it sounds like—a map of the steps a new franchisee must take and when to take them to scale their business. The Roadmap gives you step-by-step instructions based on your franchise’s revenue so that you know exactly when to do things like hire new employees or add equipment, keeping you from growing too fast or too slow.
Let U.S. Lawns’ experience and knowledge assist you on the road to becoming a strong and stable business owner. Because we are so much more than simply a lawn mowing franchise, you will never be bored when you join our franchise family.
