Pest Control & Lawn Care
A Natural Fit
Are you considering diversifying your services? Lawn care is often a natural choice for pest control business owners. Thanks in part to similar science and licensing requirements, pest control and lawn care often come together seamlessly.
Advantages of Diversification with Lawn Care
- Increased service offerings can help pest control business owners meet the growing needs of their customers
- Tremendous cross-marketing opportunities
- Easy scheduling and maximized productivity, as services are outdoors and customers do not need to be home
- Regular industry growth at an average rate of 20 percent anually
Lawn care is perceived as a low-cost, high-value service. With the average annual cost of service near $300 per year, lawn care is a small slice of the consumer's disposable income and one of the last budget items to be cut. As a result, Weed Man franchisees enjoy an annual customer renewal rate of 75-80%, allowing business owners to focus their marketing efforts on net growth rather than repeat sales.
