  • If you are talking about lawn weed and feed programmes for domestic customers, then you need a lot of customers to make it pay well.

    • We have a lot of customers but mainly just grass cutting they are after but not sure whether to put a programme forward to a lot of them as we have a lot of holiday homes.
  • I did the maintenance thing when I first started what a pain in the arse compared with lawn care. You can make money at it but customers generally want a pound of flesh for there money. I mostly cut grass the good thing is once it's cut its done and there is no quibles. If most of your work is grass cutting the lawn treatments have merit if you have the tickets. I do well out of it and it ties in well with my grass round
  • We do all year round garden maintenance services and up-sell lawn treatments, aeration and scarifying to some customers.

    It can be a nice little add-on. If you do the aeration and scarifying early Winter - early Spring, it can help fill in the the less busy period.

    A way to price lawn treatments is to cost the amount of material + labour then multiply that by 3.

    I do a bit of everything really.
    12 hours a week at a wedding venue which is doing all sorts.
    Two biggish places where the customers do a lot, I mainly do the grass there but help out with all sorts too which includes all the way through winter.
    I then have a days worth of just lawn mowing and 3 customers of border maintenance.

    I know I could make more just grass cutting but I quite like the variation.

    I am getting used to what I don't want to do though so I'll probably adapt and streamline as I go on.
