Category: Gardening

 

Owning a TruGreen franchise represents a year-long business where you will provide tailored lawn care treatments to your customers and encompass a host of management activities that go with building up a multi-van business. There’s huge scope to expand your franchise with the potential to run a fleet of branded vehicles to deliver lawn care services in your local area.

The lawn care treatments that TruGreen provides are focused on your individual customer’s requirements and you won’t believe in a one-size fits all approach. Your customers will be from a variety of backgrounds but will be proud of their gardens and will want to keep them in top condition.

Customer care and satisfaction are of great importance and our franchise owners benefit from customer accolades and referrals as a result of their focus on providing a customised solution to their customer’s lawns.

Our TruGreen franchise owners differentiate themselves from the competition by providing a bespoke service and focusing on customer care, profitability and business success. Lawn care treatments include:
•Scarification
•Aeration
•Weed and feed
•Removal of moss and algae from pathways, patios and driveways
•Garden clearing
•Tidy-up activities

You will also deal with:
•Marketing and sales
•Purchasing
•Office administration
