UKLCA History

Established in January 2016,  the association was created from the UK Lawn Care Network which was established in January 2005.  The UK lawn network was created for the independent lawn care sector, the purpose was to help each other, generating leads and sharing experiences and advice.

The network grew steadily over the next few years, but in 2016, the members felt that additional resource was required to build and promote the network, consensus was the task ahead was too much for one person with limited resource.

The UK Lawn Care Association was formed in 2016.  The committee was co-opted from lawn business around the country and committee members voluntarily provide their time, knowledge and enthusiasm for the good of the industry, Association and its members.

In 2018 membership elected UKLCN founder Richard Salmon as Honorary President.

It doesn’t matter whether you are an established successful business or just starting out, if you are an independent lawncare business and operate within UKLCA code of conduct you are welcome to join us.

A Collective Voice

A need for the Association has never been greater; as individuals we are powerless but as a group we can be recognised.

Brexit, Covid-19 pandemic, a changing financial climate, increasing restrictions on the professional products are all challenges for the lawn care sector.

The UKLCA is the community to exchange ideas and experiences to help you grow you and your business, this is complemented by a proactive working relationship and membership of the  Amenity Forum

One of the most impressive things about this community is its willingness to share its expertise so both new joiners and mature firms can access a wealth of knowledge and experience.
