The Ground Guys® represents a business ownership opportunity in a familiar, stable industry. We allow franchise owners and their families to experience the lifestyle they’ve always desired full of freedom, flexibility and infinite possibility.

Head for Greener Pastures & Grow a Business You’ll Love with The Grounds Guys®

For all the corporate world has provided throughout your career, it cannot promise you the bright future you deserve – a future filled with freedom, flexibility and infinite possibility.

The Healthy Roots of Our Model

  • A Recurring Customer Base
  • Where many home services require infrequent visits, quality lawncare services are performed weekly, giving your business the chance to capitalize on repeat business.
  • You Lead People Who Care for Lawns An executive ownership model, your role is to lead your team of lawncare professionals while building lasting relationships with home and business owners in your community.
  • Year-Round Offerings While lawncare is often your “bread and butter” service, you may offer a variety of seasonal services to keep both residential and commercial customers happy year-round.
  • We Can Dig Deeper, Not Wider With so many service verticals to choose from, you are able to provide multiple services to the same customer.

You Don’t Have to Dig Deep for Bountiful Benefits

  • Work/Life Balance - Enjoy a family-friendly work week, with limited on-call or emergency work.
  • Simple Operations - We have a proven, customer service-focused model with few moving parts.
  • Small Footprint - Franchise owners enjoy low overhead, as no initial office space is required.
  • Prime Territories - We offer protected territories all across North America.
  • Recession-Resistant - Regardless of the economy, grass will continue to grow.

Your Business Support Starts from the Ground Up

From the minute you are awarded a franchise, your training and support system come to life. These are the support branches you’ll likely lean on most.

  • Sure Start Business Training Our Sure Start training is a 4-6 week program combining classroom-style business operations, sales, and marketing training. You won’t be mowing lawns, you’ll be running a business, and we’ll help ensure you know how.
  • GG Pro Management Software All-in-one tool to manage operations including frontline service and support, customer satisfaction, recruiting and retention, marketing and sales, and financial awareness of your unique overhead needs.
  • Franchise Business Coach + Industry Experts You’ll have a business to run, and we have ongoing best practices to share. You’ll receive visits from your seasoned FBC plus access to our staff of 30-yr landscape industry veterans for advice.
  • Branded Marketing & Awareness Customers enjoy the assurance that comes with hiring an internationally known brand. From our vehicles to tech uniforms, we look professional. And with a marketing machine in place, the brand is everywhere you turn.
  • A Mind for Business Meets a Heart for Service

    Let’s face it. You’ve always had one of the nicest yards on the block. You take pride in the appearance of your home and your entire neighborhood. You and your family are already involved in the community, but always looking for ways to make a bigger impact.

    While your job has afforded a comfortable life, it has come at the cost of a lifestyle you don’t always have control over. You’d prefer to call the shots and put your business acumen to work for yourself.

    Those that thrive within our system are process-driven and hardworking. They have experience developing and leading teams and have a knack for operations. They are generous with their time and resources because they realize these qualities always generate a return. These qualities are also inherent in born leaders – which our top-performing franchise owners can identify with.
