BASIS who regulate the scheme describe it as follows:
The aim of BASIS Lawn Assured Scheme is to independently raise professional standards within the lawn care sector and does this by ensuring all Lawn Assured companies are meeting a consistent standard of performance when managing lawns and applying Plant Protection Products.
This scheme is widely recognised as the benchmark of best practice within lawn care by the UK government and industry bodies such as the Amenity Forum.
Why should I look for a Lawn Assured provider?
The Lawn Assured Scheme has been created to help to ensure a consistent and high standard of practice in the professional lawn care sector. Members of the scheme have undergone a voluntary accreditation including on site inspection to demonstrate good practice and application disciplines.
As a home owner would you employ a gas engineer or electrician that isn’t correctly trained and accredited? Employing the services of a Lawn Assured approved contractor gives you that extra confidence.
In future years this may change to compulsory accreditation.
Which business are Lawn Assured registered?
BASIS Lawn Assured is supported by a number of Independent lawn care companies and other major franchise operating in the UK lawncare market.
Companies that meet the requirements of the Lawn Assured Scheme have demonstrated they are following best practice and are managing lawn care in a safe and sustainable way.
