5 Business Ideas for Your Lawn Care Franchise

If you have been looking into starting a lawn care franchise, you might be wondering how to get started, and which area to specialize in. There are so many different factors that go into providing and maintaining a healthy yard that there are a host of categories from which to choose.

Weed Control

While someone may have a lawn that they do their best to take care of, sometimes weeds get in and they are difficult to take care of without professional help. This is where your weed control franchise comes into play. Weeds can definitely be a tricky problem, but with the equipment and methods that Lawn Doctor trains each franchise owner with, your clients’ weeds will be gone in no time.

Opening a weed control franchise with Lawn Doctor allows you to provide expert weed control service with low overhead, so that both you and your customers get the most out of your service.

Lawn Pest Control

Starting a lawn care franchise that specializes in lawn pest control is a great business idea. Like weeds, pests are things that most people do not know how to deal with on their own. The Lawn Doctor franchise offers a pest speciality in tackling pre-emergent pest activity. Nipping the problem in the bud is the best way to go.

Your lawn pest control franchise can come in and save the day for businesses and home owners everywhere by eliminating the problem with little hassle and proven techniques. Lawn Doctor will educate you on all of the best practices for lawn pest control so that you can make sure your customers get the best service from you possible.

Basic Lawn Maintenance

Everyone lately is so busy with the endless obligations of modern society. Providing the service of basic maintenance is something that is widely popular with busy people everywhere. It is just one of those little tasks that gets put off in the shuffle of modern life, and is best left to lawn care professionals like you! Taking lawn maintenance off the to-do list of everyone in your service area will bring in a lot of business, with little overhead.

Some great services to offer that fall under this category are seeding for lawns, and fertilizer. These are the basics to any lawn, as all lawns need seeds to start, and fertilizer to grow to be a full, healthy lawn.s


With the amount of money that it would cost a business to have a dedicated lawn care professional on staff to maintain the business property, most businesses are often better off outsourcing lawn care to a third party lawn care business. Because often maintenance does not need to be performed on a daily basis, they can hire your lawn care franchise to come in for routine maintenance when needed.

This allows your lawn care franchise to build up a wide ranging clientele of businesses that you perform lawn care for. It saves each of your clients money, and can grow into a rich, diverse portfolio for your franchise.


As mentioned under basic lawn care, residential properties hold a wealth of opportunities for your lawn care franchise. From pest control to basic lawn maintenance, specializing in serving residential clients is a great way to grow a business. Especially if your lawn care franchise can become the unofficial lawn care provider for a neighborhood, you will both build a great reputation, and lower the costs of moving equipment vast distances between clients. Word of mouth is a great way to advertise, and works quickly through people living in close proximity.


With all of these lawn care business options to choose from, you can grow a robust, diverse lawn care franchise for the highest profits with Lawn Doctor. To learn more about the lawn care franchising opportunities available through Lawn Doctor, contact us at 1.866.LAWN DOC (1.866.529.6362).
