Unrivalled support and individually tailored territories set the Lawnscience franchise head and shoulders above the rest!
We provide our customers with an annual program of treatments after a technical review of their lawn is undertaken. The program consists of regular treatments such as weed control and fertilisation and additional treatments such as scarification and aeration which is carried out throughout the year.
We continually monitor and assess our customer’s lawns so we can identify any existing problems or future threats to the well being of the lawn. We can then offer additional preventative and curative treatments to avoid any serious long lasting damage.
Because we provide the most extensive range of professional treatments there are very few lawns that are beyond redemption, so even the worst lawns will quickly benefit from our treatment programs. Our customers are loyal and we are highly recommended, therefore a high volume of our business comes from referrals, providing our franchisees with a solid customer base that continually grows.
