About Greensleeves

The Greensleeves franchise opportunity

The typical job of a Greensleeves franchisee is to analyse, advise and treat their customers lawns, visiting at least five times per year to ensure the lawns are lush, green and healthy.

Even if you don’t have a background in lawn care or any previous experience running a business do not worry – all the support you need is at hand.

The last two years have been a rollercoaster ride for most businesses, and whilst many were hit hard by the pandemic, Greensleeves’ franchisees are riding the wave of a booming market with a huge increase in their revenue over the last 12 months.

In January 2021 - already a record breaking year - they took £500k across the network. This January, it was £800k – an incredible growth in revenue of 62% year-on-year.

Greensleeves has forecast a further 12.7% growth in 2022, with a further huge uptake of new customers by the end of the year.

So, why not make 2022 the year you get in on the action, and transform your life for the better with a brand that is always ahead of the game?

The ideal Greensleeves franchisee

You don’t need lawn care experience

Greensleeves franchisees don’t necessarily have a background in horticulture, or being outdoors. What our network shares, is a desire to build a business which gives them control over their working week. Being fully invested in what they do and thriving from the Greensleeves franchise model, our franchisees are working to create the future they want to live.

An absolute commitment to customer service is the most important skill you will possess.

It is important to us that you have the appetite to grow a business to its full potential and maintain the high levels of customer service that we currently provide to our many thousands of existing customers.

You will be somebody who is not work shy and take on the challenges that running your own franchise business brings. Franchisees need to be able to manage a daily routine that requires a degree of semi-physical activity. You need to be flexible and self-motivated; very few business opportunities offer success without hard work, commitment and long and often unsocial hours.

Greensleeves' history

For more than 23 years, Greensleeves has provided top quality lawn treatments to gardens across the country. With over 100 franchises throughout the UK, and more due to launch this year, we are going from strength to strength. 

This is also due to the enormous potential within the lawn care market with the industry showing healthy growth at over 30%. With an estimated 18,000,000 lawns in the UK at present and growing, there is more than enough opportunity to establish a successful franchise in this sector. We have repeat business with over 90% of our customers and recommendations are the main source of new business for an established franchise.

Case studies

John & James Bushrod


“We found Greensleeves to be very approachable and flexible throughout the joining process. Their staff were always available to answer and deal with the many questions we had and they were and still are extremely accommodating and accessible at all times. The friendly and helpful relationship was invaluable during the early stages and has continued unchanged through our early months of operation”

David Mason

South Lincolnshire & Newark

“The initial support and training were excellent and the ongoing support is there for you, but not invasive. In particular David Truby and Cheryl Harper, have been great and are, just as they appear to be, passionate and professional, with a desire to help you build the business and brand. It is key to have a plan and work with it, striving in both short, medium and long term goals. This business works well, but planning, marketing, work ethic and people skills are all required to drive it to maximise its opportunity.”

James Crossman


“Once I had decided to buy a franchise I was unsure which direction to take, all became clear when I met Greensleeves. The business model is solid and combined with the experience and personalities of the head office team I knew that a Greensleeves lawn treatment franchise was for me. I love being my own boss and the satisfaction I get from transforming a customer’s lawn is fantastic. The support that I have received has been second to none, it is reassuring to know that I have a team of business experts at my fingertips. ”

David Fortune


“After 38 years in the corporate world, I was looking for an opportunity to run my own business. I wanted a professional company that would leave me alone to get on with it but always be there to offer advice and support when it was required. With the passion, enthusiasm and honesty of David Truby I knew that Greensleeves was a firm I could work with. I have subsequently discovered that Cheryl Harper and the support team are even more incredible and nothing is too much trouble.”
