Lawn care can be a lucrative business. UK homeowners like their grass green and healthy, so professional lawn maintenance services are always in high demand.
If you're thinking of entering the lawn care industry, you may be tempted to purchase a franchise in order to get the ball rolling as quickly as possible. But the franchise route is rarely the best option; setting up your own lawn care business from scratch may sound like an intimidating prospect, but the results are likely to be preferable in the long run.
Don't let the lockdown keep you from pursuing a rewarding new career in lawn maintenance!
The COVID-19 pandemic has been enormously challenging for small businesses, but the team here at Lawn & Weed Expert have done a fantastic job of adapting to the 'new normal'. Not only have we continued to offer our full range of lawn care services (click here to learn how we're staying safe), we have also been able to keep on delivering lawn care training to those who wish to set up lawn treatment businesses of their own.
In fact, we trained MORE people in 2020 than in 2019!
Lawn maintenance is a great career to get into. Training as a lawn care specialist allows you to earn a good living while maintaining a good work-life balance. This line of work is also relatively recession-proof; while we have had to adjust the way we work in order to observe the coronavirus safety guidelines, the Lawn & Weed Expert team have continued to work throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. In fact, our business has grown this year!
If you've decided that lawn maintenance is the right career for you, you might be tempted to buy a lawn care franchise. There are a number of reasons why this might seem like a good idea: you'll be trading under an established brand name, and you'll have the support of a company that's already made a success of looking after people's lawns.
However, there are numerous drawbacks to purchasing a lawn care franchise. A franchise costs a lot of money, for one thing, and there's absolutely no guarantee that you'll be successful.
The COVID-19 situation is constantly evolving, and with four different governments making announcements on a near-daily basis, you can perhaps be forgiven if you've lost track of the current rules for your part of the UK.
A lot of people - including both lawn care professionals and the homeowners who require their services - don't seem to know whether lawn care companies are allowed to continue working right now. Let's take a look at the latest rules (as of 20th November 2020) and what they mean for your lawn.
