What Makes U.S. Lawns One of the Top Landscaping Companies?

April 26, 2017

Since we opened in 1986, U.S. Lawns has been dedicated to excellence. Excellence in service, excellence in reputation, and excellence in opportunity are all important to us as a brand, which has led to us being one of the top landscaping companies, according to Lawn and Landscape’s annual industry roundup, proving once again that we are one of the top landscaping companies.

We Are in the Top 10 in Our Industry

We are proud to rank #7 out of 100 lawn and landscaping companies on Lawn and Landscape’s 2016 list of the best in the industry. U.S. Lawns is even more proud to be the highest ranked landscaping maintenance franchise that made the list, which truly shows how exceptional our franchise opportunity is.

The Lawn and Landscape list includes 100 companies in the green industry, including commercial landscape maintenance businesses, lawn care companies, landscape design/build companies, and more. The list’s diversity makes us even more proud to be featured as one of the top 10.

What Are the Other Top Landscaping Companies Missing?

U.S. Lawns is the #1 commercial landscape franchise in the country, but how did we get there? What do we offer that the other landscaping companies are missing? The answer is simple. At U.S. Lawns, we focus on finding the clients that bring in consistent revenue, which is why the only work we do is commercial landscaping services. And we are one of the few landscaping franchise opportunities available for smart, enterprising business people to tap into, which sets us apart in the industry.

Focus on Commercial Landscaping Services

If you are looking for the ways to build a scalable, sustainable business in the green industry, commercial landscaping service is the way to go. Working in the commercial space gives you opportunities to work with bigger clients and greater opportunities for ongoing revenue.

At U.S. Lawns, we don’t spend time doing landscaping or lawn care for residential clients, simply because there are factors there that make the business difficult to scale. Residential clients are single homeowners or renters who want to pay to have a single yard maintained. At U.S. Lawns, we do work with property managers, HOAs, and apartment complexes who contract their landscaping services on a large scale. Here are two of the biggest differences between residential and commercial landscaping services. Take a look at these and you can see why commercial is the better choice:

  • Higher Spending: Residential properties are smaller than commercial properties, and with bigger spaces come bigger budgets. Working with residential clients requires that you acquire and sustain a lot of accounts in order to make a living. It can take several residential clients to add up to the revenue from just one commercial client, so it is rarely worth your time to pursue them. As a business owner, you are limited by the number of relationships you have time to manage.
  • Continuous business: Residential clients regard professional landscaping as a convenient but unnecessary expense in their budgets, which means that it is one of the first things to get cut when things get tight. In contrast, commercial clients always need to maintain their landscapes and they typically don’t take care of the service in-house, so you can rely on their business.

Landscaping Franchise Opportunities

Most of the businesses on the major lists of the top landscaping companies are NOT franchises. That means that of the top 100 companies, you can only get involved with the 3 of them that are looking for franchise owners, including U.S. Lawns. Not only are we #7 on the Lawn and Landscape list, but we are the top ranked franchise on the list.

Even better, U.S. Lawns is the only landscaping franchise on the list that focuses solely on doing business with commercial clients. In our more than thirty years in business, we have learned that the way to build a strong business with potential for growth is to work in commercial landscaping.
