Our gardening franchise is about more than cutting grass

5 things you might not know about Jim’s Mowing

Jim’s Mowing does far more than just cut grass, just as the big Coffee brands sell much more than Coffee! As a franchisee you have multiple revenue streams to keep you busy all year round! Here are some of the main ones:

Lawn Mowing

Professional lawn cut provides the best possible finish for your customers lawn including professional edging of entire lawn area including around trees and other garden features. You can provide advanced lawn care through weed and pest control, top dressing, fertilising, aeration, coring, and turf laying and repair. Ride on mowing is available for all properties and slashing is also available for larger properties.

General Garden

A well maintained garden provides a great look and feel to any home and increases the appeal of your customers property. You can tailor a garden maintenance program to suit each garden’s needs or simply provide a once off visit.

Hedging & Pruning

Careful and regular hedging, pruning and trimming of gardens is essential to its maintenance and includes roses, plants, shrubs, fruit trees and small trees. This service also includes the removal of small shrubs and trees. For large jobs you can arrange for a Jim’s tree specialist to undertake this task (take the training and you could be doing it yourself!).


Gutters need to be cleared regularly to avoid water build up and overflow that causes damage to roofs and houses. Navigating your way around gutters can be dangerous and you may risk damage to the roof itself, so you can assure your customers that your staff has the equipment and training that will ensure their gutters are cleaned quickly without leaving a mess or damaging the roof or gutters.

Garden Clean Ups

Customers won’t always have the time, tools or ability to keep their garden looking neat and tidy. Ask them what they want to achieve, give them your professional advise and then come up with an affordable solution – whether that’s a simple tidy up or a complete overhaul.

Commercial Customers

This service is designed for Real Estate Agents and Commercial Properties. For Real Estate Agents, as a business involved in property management, reliable and high quality garden maintenance will be important. A full lawn and garden care service is tailored to meet landlords needs on a regular or once off basis.

So you see, there’s much more to running a Jim’s Mowing franchise than you might have thought. I’ll be sending out a new fact each day this week until Saturday so look out for the email and please feel free to get in touch with the team for an informal chat about starting your own business with us!

Have a great week!
