In 2011, Sam and I were looking to become self-employed. I had previously worked within a franchise company, so knew the benefits this could offer, and I was keen to bring my experience to our local area. The training programme was really informative, and the ongoing support doesn’t stop once you’ve finished your training, which is another benefit of being part of a franchise group rather than going it alone.

What we do
Lawn care is an industry unlike any other in the UK. It offers a steady long-term income, a healthy and active lifestyle, and the opportunity to build a business with real value. It’s a massive market (recent estimates reveal a potential market of 13 million UK households), with demand that continues to grow every year.
Lawn Care Fees are charged per square metre. While traditional home services businesses charge hourly and daily rates, the industry standard for lawn care is to charge per square metre. This helps us to increase earnings far beyond that of a traditional van-based business. Lawn Care Professionals are seen as specialists. You need to be qualified in the care and repair of lawns to run a lawn care business. Customers respect this, which makes it much easier to deliver an excellent service.
Over the past 20 years, we’ve built a national brand by sticking to three simple principles: outstanding customer service, superb results, and a fair pricing structure. Lawns to be proud of since 1994 The business began with just one van more than 20 years ago. We were a small business to begin with, but we had an unwavering commitment to customer service, reliable results and value for money, which underpinned our success. Customer referrals began to flood in, and before long, the business was growing at an exciting rate.

"We have been extremely pleased with the success of the business so far and have met or even exceeded the targets we set out to achieve.
My wife Sam was able to leave her employment in March 2014 to fully concentrate on the business and in October 2014 we also employed another lawn technician, so we now have two Lawnkeeper vans on the road."
Darren Morris, Peterborough Franchise Territory
Just a quick note to let you know that we are highly delighted to let you know that our lawn appears to be in first class condition following your recent visits. Whilst we appeared to be suffering from the red thread disease, next doors lawn appears to be almost lost to the disease, the application by your operative a few weeks ago, appears to have cleared up the problem. Our lawns have always suffered from extensive weeds growing through and it is pleasing to report that your treatments appear to be working really well and the colour of the lawn is an excellent shade of green. The severe winter last year produced frost damage to the lawn at the rear in particular and again, that seems to have recovered under your treatments and care. I thought you might appreciate some positive feedback and keep our fingers crossed, that we have a better winter this year than last years arctic winter. RA
The service has been excellent. Professional and prompt and always with politeness and courteousness. Mr JT - Glinton
I've lived in the house for 30 years and in the past two years you have transformed the lawn. I would recommend anybody to use your excellent services. PR
