About Spring-Green Lawn Care

Founded in Naperville, Illinois, in January 1977, Spring-Green has always been a neighborhood-based lawn and tree care service company. Today our organization services over 14,000 neighborhood communities around the country.

Spring-Green Lawn Care is recognized as a Top 100 company by Lawn & Landscape Magazine and an industry leading lawn care organization. Spring-Green offers high-quality, fertilization and weed control services as well other regionally appropriate services such as mosquito control, aeration, seeding and irrigation maintenance to residential and commercial establishments across the country.

Spring-Green is focused on identifying and recruiting only the best green industry business owners, to operate a Spring-Green business in conjunction with their existing business. Spring-Green brings 40 years of experience, national buying power, industry leading marketing and technology as well as a dedicated team of professionals committed to create profitable growth. This strategic-partnership creates a tremendous competitive advantage locally allowing the owner and their team to be hyper focused on providing superior customer service.

“No matter how we cut it, without Spring-Green’s resources, we couldn’t do marketing as effectively…” – Chris Casselberry, Green Seasons Lawn & Pest Services, Spring-Green Lawn Care, Baton Rouge.

Spring-Green finds its greatest success in partnering with existing green industry business owners who see the value in diversifying their services and partnering to grow this area of their business further and faster than they could do on their own.

Through diversification, Spring-Green owners build an economically resilient, recurring revenue stream while reducing their labor burden. This diversification sets the stage for successful retirement planning, succession planning or future sale of the recurring customer base and revenue.

Why Spring Green?

No matter your current green industry company’s focus — landscape, pest control or commercial/residential mowing & maintenance — adding Spring Green Lawn Care to work in conjunction with your existing operation can grow revenue and financial strength faster and more securely than doing it on your own.

It’s called diversified growth, and the recurring revenue could be the secret to lowering your current business risk and building greater financial freedom for you and your family.

First, our proven marketing systems find, grow and retain customers, often while you sleep. Your local market already wants, uses and needs our services. We think they should get them from you. In addition, our ongoing operational support structure is the key to scaling a business quickly.
