Our History

Our Story


Since 1986, U.S. Lawns has dominated the commercial grounds industry by combining national brand strength with a network of locally owned franchises. Using this model, we set the standard for both performance and service in commercial landscaping.

From our home office in Orlando, FL, we proudly select and train community leaders to do business wearing the U.S. Lawns star. Today, a dedicated team of men and women in over 250 locations make up our franchisee network. All are equipped with the processes and standards you’d expect from a national chain. All are united by a passion for service to our neighbors. Your turf is our lawn.

Bold Lines


We never rest on past success. Our vision is 100% customer retention, as we build a stronger network every day. Looking to the future, we’re uniquely positioned to expand into all 50 states, serving all major and secondary markets with first-rate teams and commercial grounds care excellence. Our goal is to become the best in all we do, supported by a strongly connected network of all-star franchisees who work together to service customers of all sizes with properties nationwide.
