12 Oct 16
You’ve heard it all before, “only men can mow lawns”, “It’s too hard to find a local lawny!”
Well we're here to smash these myths plus many more!
Check out our eight local lawny myths!
Myth #1: Only lazy people need the help of a garden professional
We know what it’s like. It feels like there is never enough time to spend with your family or doing the things you love!
It hard to find the time with your long working hours and when you are home, your household chores.
You don’t have enough time for yourself, let alone your family and the things you love.
This is why people hire a lawn and garden professional. To give them back time in their life for the things they love.
Myth #2: Only men can mow lawns and maintain gardens!
Many people think only men can push a lawn mower, prune a rose, clean a gutter or maintain a garden.
Well, it’s simply not true, there are many women who love rolling up their sleeves and getting the job done.
Many of our Lawn and Garden Franchisees are female and do a fantastic job which their customers love!
Myth #3: Lawnys don’t know what they are doing
Many people think it’s easy to trim a hedge, kill weeds or tidy a garden.
The truth is it takes skill and training to ensure the right service is delivered each and every time.
It’s important to choose a lawny who know their stuff, has experience and has been trained, so that you know you in safe hands.
Myth #4: You can’t trust a lawny
It can be scary letting someone you don’t know onto your property and it is understandable why people are uncomfortable with the idea.
You hear stories of lawny’s being untrustworthy and this can put you off the idea of hiring the services of a lawn and garden professional.
This is why it is important to hire a lawn and garden professional who is police checked and fully insured (all of our franchisees are).
This protects you and your local lawny!
Myth #5: If you book a lawn service you must have your lawn and garden serviced every week
You have the option to choose a tailor made package to suit your needs. Whether it is a weekly, fortnightly, monthly, once off or a service of selected area in your garden, it’s absolutely up to you!
Myth #6: If you book a lawn and garden service anyone can just rock up
Make sure you go with a company that will be sending out the same lawn and garden professional each and every time. That way you know who will be on your property.
Our lawn and garden services are done by the same franchisee each time. The franchisees are owner operators, meaning they work both on and in the business. You will meet the franchisee during the quoting process and the franchisee will be the person performing the services in your home.
It’s important that you can feel comfortable knowing who is providing the services on your property at all times.
Myth #7: You have to know the exact service you require.
Every good lawn and garden maintenance professional should be able to come into your home and be able to tell what needs doing in your garden.
A trained lawny knows what needs to be done and how to do it and will be able to suggest these services to you.
