Landscaping, also known as the green industry, is huge with more than $99 billion in revenues annually. Industry publications estimate annual growth of four to five percent. More importantly, the green industry is an open market where the top 50 companies generate only about 15% of the available revenue. That means it is fair game for anyone to grab a share of the market. Including you.
Better yet, by focusing on the most efficient and profitable segment of this burgeoning industry, the commercial market, U.S. Lawns sets itself apart from the competition. We have spent the last three decades building a business that appeals to commercial property owners and property management professionals and have developed systems, tools and resources that drive value to our franchise owners cross the United States.
The green industry, and especially the commercial segment, has proved to be fairly recession resistant. Grass grows even when the economy shrinks and commercial customers generally consider landscape maintenance to be a budgeted item rather than a discretionary expense. This allows our franchisees to build a sustainable business that generates a consistent and dependable revenue stream in all economic conditions.

“There’s no way that I could have grown my company as quickly and as big as I’ve gotten it in this amount of time. If I did not have the support and if I didn’t have the name behind me, I wouldn’t be getting jobs that I’m getting.” – Ben Harrell, franchisee, Lowell, AR
