“At Kingsbury Lawn Care, We’ve been a member business of the UK Lawn Care Association (UKLCA) back to 2015 and have enjoyed extensive benefits in this four year journey to the established lawn treatment company we have become.
We use the UKLCA logo widely within our company to include vehicles, uniform and marketing materials. We feel this represents a mark of quality, and assurance for the customer that we’re well connected in the industry. The UKLCA contains leading lawn care businesses – company’s that we want to be associated with. Whereas the website generates a drip feed of leads for us, the logo use as a marketing tool helps us to attract and convert new customers. This added assurance is key given the volume of customers which become disillusioned with their current lawn care provider.
The UKLCA Annual Conference is a 2-day event that we clear the diary for without hesitation. Speakers / topics can range from soil science through to software systems, with everything in-between. Being across two days, there is ample time to network with like-minded business owners, with conversations on all manner of topics. The UKLCA is sponsored by several suppliers, which add great value to the conference with their product knowledge and practical experience.
The annual conference was a brilliant, motivational and inspiring event back in 2015 / 2016 as a sole operator. As I continue to benefit from the experience, employees continue to improve their knowledge, and benefit from a couple of days off the tools during the off-season. The annual conference benefits all businesses, from start up to established.
From our membership, we have established invaluable relationships with company’s both at a similar stage in their lives as ours, and company’s a little further ahead. We continue to exchange ideas all year around away from UKLCA events, mutually benefiting from knowledge and experiences. We hope to visit more UKLCA in the future to exchange tips on best practice both out in the field and in the office. We enjoy each others successes.
It is impossible that our business would be even close to where it is now without our membership of the UKLCA”
