Start-Up Cost

Since its first franchise in 1967, Lawn Doctor has established itself as a leader in the lawn care services industry through innovative technology, its ability to satisfy the needs of consumers on a national level, and its development and expansion within the industry. Lawn Doctor specializes in treatment and conditioning services, such as fertilization, weed control, seeding, aeration and tree and shrub care. The Lawn Doctor brand has hundreds of locally owned and operated franchises and is the #1 ranked lawn care franchise in the United States. Lawn Doctor is a Entrepreneur Magazine’s 2024 Franchise 500 brand, ranking no. 129 for its financial strength and stability, unit growth and brand power.

Lawn Doctor's recurring revenue model has proven to be invaluable. By focusing on high-demand and repeat services like lawn fertilization, weed control, mosquito/tick control and more, one-time customer acquisitions consistently lead to repeat business. With the rise in dual-income homeowners and the do-it-yourself mindset falling to the wayside, the grass continues to look greener for Lawn Doctor's future.

The total investment necessary to begin operation of a Lawn Doctor franchise is $133,475 to $149,027. This includes between $118,950 to $122,500 that must be paid to the franchisor.


The Average Net Revenues (all territories combined) for 2023 was $1,114,402.
