Our Jim’s Mowing
Who are we?
Jim’s Mowing is the world’s largest home-based mobile lawn and garden maintenance organisation. With over 3,400 franchise owners in Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the UK, we specialise in providing a truly all-year-round garden maintenance service to both domestic and commercial clients. Started by Jim Penman in Melbourne over 25 years ago, he established a brand reputation based on high quality customer service for both the garden owner and the franchisee.
Many people say ‘Oh well, it would work in Australia because of their weather’ but in actual fact the average lawn is cut more times a year in the UK than it is in Australia as we have more moisture and less intense heat. So much so that we can point to one of our most recent recruits, Ben Locking (Jim’s Mowing Isle of Man) who earned more in his first week as a Jim than he would have if he was still in employment! There is also Rob Chisholm (Jim’s Mowing Northwich) who has earned more in his first year than he would have as a Marketing Manager, and is so pleased as Jim’s Mowing has not only improved his lifestyle but has also ‘financed his lifestyle’.
Jim’s Mowing Franchise Package

Basically, everything you need apart from your work trousers and your boots!
Who are we looking for?
Jim’s Mowing franchise owners come from a variety of backgrounds. For sure, we have a few experienced gardeners, landscapers and tree surgeons, but we also have people who have been a publican, a taxi driver, police officers, army officers, as well as middle and senior management in office jobs. The common bond has been a love of the outdoors, not afraid of hard physical work, a desire to do something for themselves and an interest in gardening. Jim’s Mowing can teach the rest.
Why Jim’s Mowing?
Many franchise organisations claim to be the best, or a ‘cut above the rest’ however, we believe that it’s irrelevant what we think, it’s what you think that really matters, and we’d love to hear from you.
