About Lawnkeeper

Lawnkeeper is owned by Sam Langrick, who in the early days of the business was an employee. When he got the chance to buy the business, he grabbed the opportunity!
Sam initially grew the business in his own territory, operating a multi-van business servicing many clients in the Yorkshire, Cheshire and North Lincolnshire areas.
With the growth of the business through franchising, Sam now spends his time developing the overall business strategy for Lawnkeeper as well as providing support and advice to its franchisees. Lawnkeeper is proud of its high levels of customer service and its emphasis on providing a quality service at all times to its customers.
We provide all the full technical training in lawn care to our franchisees, especially in the safe use of professional grade fertilisers and weed killers which are not available to the general public. The safety of both our franchisees and our customers is of vital importance. As part of the Lawnkeeper team, you will develop a level of professional expertise which will ensure you can compete effectively in your territory.

What is Included in the Franchise Package?

Lawnkeeper franchise packages come in a variety of types to suit your needs and budget – our cheapest starter package costs just £12,900 plus VAT. Depending on which package you choose, this is what you can get in a Lawnkeeper franchise:

1. Large Protected Territory

Your own protected territory with a minimum of 100,000 potential customers with a high percentage of high earners.

2. The Lawnkeeper Van

Your van is one of the biggest adverts you have for your business so we provide a fully sign painted, silver Ford Transit Custom van. This means as well as giving you a professional appearance you’re driving an elegant, trouble free, and safe vehicle.

3. Two week initial training in lawncare

Your training starts with the NPTC PA1 and PA6A spraying course. This is a legal requirement for you to be able to spray chemicals in a commercial role. During our intensive training course, we will concentrate on giving you all the tools, skills and knowledge necessary to start running your own very successful Lawnkeeper Franchise.

4. A full range of high quality equipment, including:

  • Aerator
  • Fertiliser spreader
  • Scarifier
  • Sprayers
  • Fertiliser
  • Herbicide

5. Bespoke Franchise Management System

Our system is there to provide you with operational tools, document management, scheduling, CRM, invoicing and accounting, allowing you to spend time earning money, not doing paperwork.

6. Launch Marketing:

We will run a launch marketing campaign to get your business off to the best possible start. We guarantee that you will get your first 20 customers with this campaign – and in the highly unlikely event that this doesn’t happen, we’ll continue the launch campaign until you do! The campaign will include:

  • Your own fully optimised web page
  • A door to door leaflet drop targeting houses in your territory.
  • An advert in your local paper announcing your arrival.
  • Supply of leaflets for you to distribute.

7. Ongoing Technical and Sales & Marketing Support

Even though your training and the materials will give you everything you need to succeed in this exciting business, you’ll still need the support of the Lawnkeeper Head Office. Here’s the support structure you get from Head Office when you come on board as a Lawnkeeper Franchisee:

  • Continual development and updating of Lawnkeeper services and offerings
  • Availability of technical information on The Lawnkeeper ‘Extranet’
  • Participation in annual meetings and seminars
  • Support and development of sales and marketing strategies
  • Ongoing help with materials and equipment, purchased at prices lower than you could obtain in the open market.

What Our Franchisees Have To Say:

Paul Ewbank

East Yorkshire

"Lawnkeeper has been a great franchise to work with.

Sam’s support has been excellent, and despite the recession my business has continued to grow by maintaining good relationships with my customer base,
whilst constantly picking up new business."

Darren Morris

Peterborough

"We have been extremely pleased with the success of the business so far and have met or even exceeded the targets we set out to achieve. My wife Sam was able to leave her employment in March 2014 to fully concentrate on the business and in October 2014 we also employed another lawn technician, so we now have two Lawnkeeper vans on the road."

If you want to build a business of real value providing you with a steady, long term income – and you don’t mind getting your hands dirty – then a Lawnkeeper franchise could be the ideal choice.
