Greensleeves Lawn Care

Company Overview

Greensleeves Lawn Care offers high-quality, affordable lawn care services that are tailor made to suit each individual customer’s lawn. Greensleeves has been operating nationally for over 14 years and is still owned by the original franchisees.  The company began treating lawns in 1998 and in 2000 the business franchised to offer a nationwide service to the domestic market. Last year Greensleeves had its most successful year to date with a healthy growth in turnover and an increase to over 35,000 customers.

Franchise Overview

Greensleeves currently has 63 franchises operating across the UK. Even in these uncertain economic times, the potential within the lawn care market is enormous. Whilst the industry is showing healthy growth, it is still barely scratching the surface. With an estimated 18,000,000 lawns in the UK at present, there is more than enough opportunity to establish a successful franchise in this sector. There are also a number of resale opportunities available for those wishing to purchase a lawn care business which is already established. 

Training

Greensleeves franchisees receive full initial training and ongoing support from a highly committed management team. Each new Greensleeves franchisee will partake in an initial 10-day start-up training programme followed by ongoing support from management. The course content includes: Lawn culture and nutrition Weed/disease identification Machinery and equipment handling NPTC qualification (legally required to handle pesticides in a commercial situation) Health and safety Marketing and business development Administration Business support

Daily Life of a Franchisee

The typical job of a Greensleeves franchisee is to analyse, offer advice and treat their customer’s lawns, visiting at least four times a year to ensure the lawns are lush, green and healthy. Services range from seasonal treatment programmes through to specialist applications such as scarification and hollow tine aeration, depending on each individual lawn. To begin with franchisees will divide time between treating lawns and completing the marketing and administrative elements of the business from home.
