TruGreen –
The World’s largest Professional Lawn Care Franchise

TruGreen, part of the renowned ServiceMaster group, can help you to enter the profitable and growing lawn care market with its great lawn care franchise.

Why not reduce the risks of setting up in business by yourself, by investing in a TruGreen franchise and get the added benefits of a healthier, outdoor life and a business support package that’s second to none!

A TruGreen Professional Lawn Care franchise offers a fantastic business opportunity and is ideal for self-motivated individuals wishing to develop and manage their own lawn care business. The lawn care market is growing and has over 26 million homes in the UK, 90% of which have gardens, making it a growth market worth becoming a part of!


Who We Are
TruGreen® is the world’s largest lawn care company. We started as a small private company in 1973 which was acquired by ServiceMaster® in 1990 and we now serve more than 3.4 million residential and commercial customers throughout the UK and the USA.

The Opportunity
TruGreen offers a year-long business opportunity, which involves providing tailored lawn care treatments to customers in your local area. Treatments will vary from lawn to lawn but will include scarifying, aerating, weed and feed, moss/algae clearing from pathways, patios and driveways plus a wide variety of garden clearing and tidy-up activities. When you’re not providing lawn care treatments, you will be marketing your business, liaising with your customers and training and recruiting staff to provide your lawn care services.

There’s huge scope to expand your business with the potential to run a fleet of branded vehicles. By servicing just 4% of the homes in your territory, you could build up a lucrative lawn care business with a fleet of up to 10 branded vehicles. Most of your customers will opt for a year-round treatment programme comprising of between 4 and 6 treatments, but you’ll also benefit from one off treatments too!
