As the owner of a lawn care business in the UK there is one thing that you cannot afford to forgo – training your staff to do proper lawn care and maintenance. If you use untrained people they will do a lousy job and may end up costing you clients. In fact, even staff who have already been trained need to get refresher courses if they are going to keep up with developments in the industry. The only problem is, where is the best place for you to send employees to receive training?
There are many outfits set up to provide lawn care and landscaping training but it is very hard to know which one will be effective. The one thing you should know is this – unless you send them to be trained by a facility that has experience mowing lawns then they will not get the practical experience that is needed. In order to be able to landscape properly one must get out there and actually handle a lawnmower. You have to know everything that goes into landscaping and there is only so much that you can learn in a classroom setting.
The best place to send your employees is to a lawn care company that has a training services – there are some that offer training as part of their package. This means that your employees will get all the practical and other learning needed to be effective in their job. The company will send them out there to see how more experienced landscapers work and as time goes on they will be given small tasks to complete and eventually big ones. By the time they come back to you they will know everything that they need to help your business succeed.
One such company is Pro Lawn Care UK. Although they do regular landscaping, part of their business is providing lawn care technician training. They provide a well-rounded curriculum that covers all areas of landscaping. They charge very reasonable costs but if you cannot pay upfront you can talk to them about paying in instalments.
