Working at a desk every day can get boring - especially if you've been doing it for your entire adult life.
If you're sick of your current job and you want to work outdoors, lawn care could be the ideal career for you.
In this blog, we take a look at lawn care and why it may be the best career for you if you find yourself saying "I want to work outdoors!"
What does a lawn care professional do?
Maintaining lawns for a living involves a range of different tasks, such as:
- Applying fertiliser and lawn feed
- Treating the lawn for moss and weeds
- Looking for signs of common lawn pests
- Re-seeding / laying fresh turf
- Lawn scarification (what's that?)
- Aeration and spiking (what's that?)
Sounds a lot more varied than spending all week cooped up in an office, doesn't it? And working outdoors is a lot better for your health, too - not only will you get more exercise, but you'll also have a better chance of avoiding the postural problems that come from sitting down all day.

A testimonial from one of our career changers...
"To anybody who's looking to enter the lawn care business, I can absolutely recommend going down the less expensive route of training with Rob and Dave at Lawn & Weed Expert. They will give you hands-on experience on the practical side, and all the necessary knowledge of the academic and qualifying knowledge you need to start your own business. I decided to go with them after doing much research into the various franchises available and coming to the conclusion: 'Why am I paying all this money to become a franchisee when I can do this for myself with help and training from these guys?' I am still in the lawn care business nearly 10 years on, and they are still there for me if need any help and advice." - Richard Hobday, Pennine Lawn Care
