These extensive support services are what we believe distinguish The Grounds Guys from other lawn care and landscaping franchises and will help you build a business that you own, and that doesn't own you!

Why The Landscaping Industry?

A History of Consistent Growth and a Lush Future

Growth in home values in many areas of the country has helped fuel a surge in refinancing, where many homeowners are investing "cash-out" dollars into home and landscaping improvements. Historically, the landscaping industry has experienced significant growth, and even despite the trying times such as the pandemic of 2020, the numbers suggest the industry is well-positioned for future growth.

  • Increased happiness
  • More energy
