U.S. Lawns Franchise Information: 

Commercial Landscape Management since 1986
Commercial landscape management is one of the most sustainable new businesses you can start.  Mother Nature is on your side. Grass and plants grow every day. Commercial property landscape must be maintained. And that’s where you come in. Over 200 franchisees have started right where you are now, some with a landscaping background, some without, but all with one thing in common: the desire to succeed as a business owner.

Low Investment/Overhead 

Avoid the expensive build outs that many concepts require. You acquire office space, and add labor and equipment as you grow your commercial clientele.


Commercial customers provide substantial revenue, even more importantly, they provide recurring revenue. These properties need to be maintained year round. As a U.S. Lawns franchisee, you will have only commercial customers. No residential. We pursue the following:

  • Commercial office complexes
  • Retail centers & malls
  • Banks
  • Medical facilities
  • Apartment complexes
  • Condo associations
  • Homeowner associations
  • Assisted living facilities
  • Restaurants
  • Hotels and resorts
  • Municipalities 


• Full service landscape management  –  mow, edge, weed, prune, trim, debris removal

• Irrigation management  –  design, repair, adjust, inspect

• Fertilization & pest control  –  fertilizer, pest management

• Seasonal color design & installation  –  bed preparation, plant, pinch & prune

• Arbor care management  –  properly prune for natural growth & location

• Select services  –  mulch, landscape renovation, aerate, dethatch, custom services

• Snow & ice management  –  pre-treatment & clear walkways & parking lots

No Prior Experience Necessary

Our comprehensive training program and ongoing support provides you with the tools to get your business off the ground. Our experienced industry professionals will support and train you to use your sales and management abilities to build the business, while your crews service the properties.
