What types of services you can provide as a gardening franchisee

We’ve made sure all of our gardening franchisees can operate their business to fit best their experience and qualifications. You can specialise in various gardening and outdoor maintenance services, depending on the equipment you’ve got and whether you’ve gained the right certification, where necessary.

Note that each job is performed more often than not by a team of two specialists for maximum efficiency.

  • Garden maintenance

    Our garden maintenance services are delivered at hourly rates and involve performing tasks, such as lawn mowing, lawn care, hedge trimming, planting, pruning shrubs and trees, which are under 12ft high, weeding, watering and more. It will also be your responsibility to remove any work-generated green waste (up to 180l) for free.

  • Landscaping services

    Qualified and experienced landscapers get to transform and improve our customers’ gardens. The service usually involves a viewing and discussion with the client, first. You’ll need to take measurements, estimate project costs, often, deliver the materials for your client and so on. You may be asked to lay new turf, install a patio or decking, create and plant new flower beds, build garden features and structures, hardscape garden areas and so on. Note that you may also need to perform garden clearance tasks. Check out our landscaping franchise page for more information.

  • Tree surgery

    To perform our tree surgery services, you need to have the right certificates and qualifications. This is a highly specialised service that involves pruning, shaping or removing trees that are between 12 and 65ft high. With the right equipment, you may also offer stump removing and/or grinding services, as well. All arborists need to be aware if a said tree falls under the Tree Preservation Order before proceeding with the job.

  • Outdoor maintenance services

    As a gardening franchise owner, you can also specialise in various outdoor maintenance services, such as jet washing, gutter cleaning, fence repairs and installation, etc. By investing in the right equipment, you can grow your business by adding these additional services and increase the number of your teams that you manage.
