For whatever reason, you are looking for a change.

No matter your "why," U.S. Lawns has a plan to help you reach your financial and lifestyle goals.
The Landscaping Franchise Industry
Getting involved in landscaping and lawn care creates a rewarding career. Why? Because working in nature, enjoying the look and smell of green things, and creating something beautiful is more meaningful than working in an office. Plain and simple, working outdoors can make you happy.
Landscaping is a huge industry—currently worth $88 billion—and growing. Becoming the owner of a landscaping franchise is a smart way to get your piece of this pie. Take a look at some of the ways this industry is thriving, especially for new franchise owners like you. Landscaping is an open market because no single company dominates the industry. Lawn care is an important part of the industry, with landscape and mowing maintenance, lawn care, and chemical application making up 54% of the average company's gross revenue. Confidence in the industry is high, with 77% of landscaping professionals feeling confident in their company's future growth. Even in cold climates, landscaping presents year-round opportunity with franchisees transitioning to snow and ice management during the winter months to keep their businesses thriving. Because grass and foliage grow continuously, this industry offers a lot of security.
The U.S. Lawns Difference
U.S. Lawns is the #1 commercial landscape maintenance franchise in the country, with more than 250 franchises in operation from coast to coast. The decision to focus on commercial customers is simple: larger customers create higher and more consistent revenue.
Commercial customers need to keep their landscapes crisp, clean, and safe, and quality landscape maintenance is essential to that goal. That's why U.S. Lawns has such an avid following among companies looking for commercial landscaping.
Our customers enjoy a host of benefits from having well-maintained properties, and it is easy to see why! A beautiful landscape—as small as a parking strip or as big as a corporate campus—creates a friendly and safe environment that tenants and consumers love. As a result, well-kept landscapes yield 7% higher rental rates for commercial spaces.
