- Local & national footprint
This is a unique opportunity to acquire a multi-award-winning landscaping business, which designs, creates, and installs playground equipment bespoke outdoor environments for schools, in the Northeast and throughout the UK. Established in 2010, the long-running multi-award-winning business has grown rapidly over the years and has gained an excellent reputation and a loyal customer base in the education sector.
The company prioritises providing their clients with a wide range of services, including playground equipment installation for primary schools, general landscaping for the community, maintenance of school grounds and a very popular School gardening workshop for pupils. The company’s clientele is primarily in the education sector, with 90% of sales derived from primary schools throughout the UK. There is a proven Franchise model already existing within the sale with franchise agreements and operations manuals in place for the business to sell franchises across the UK and overseas. The company then charges franchisees for ongoing assistance, the use of branding, logos, and its proven business model.
The seller emigrated five years ago, which is the cause for the low sales figures, turnover and net profit. This can be turned around by a new buyer, as the education sector within the landscaping industry is highly sought-after. The seller is willing to stay on for six months to hand over the business, ease the transition and help generate sales enquiries for the new owner.
Multi award-winning brand with a credible website domain that generates organic enquiries and sales, existing email signatures set up with a recognised Registered Trademark Logo. There is a franchise model in place for extra growth. Also included is a full email database of 90,000 UK schools and educational establishments with an equipment supplier and surfacing sub-contractor database will transfer over with the sale.
There are no premises included with the sale of this business, although there is a Commercial Unit of 360m2 based in the North East that could be included subject to discussion. This business is fully relocatable, which should give the new owner a great deal of flexibility. However, it may be worth remaining within the North East, as there is a loyal clientele in this area but not essential. There is NO Equipment included in the acquisition, so the new owner will need to supply or purchase this for themselves.

This would be the ideal business for someone who has previous landscaping or manual experience. The owner can employ these people with the necessary skillset and run the business themselves dealing with the site visits and sales side of things whilst a team of 2 carry out the installations, then growing with further teams.
There is huge potential for growth with this business, as previously the business was turning over more than £400,000 a year. However, the vendor has now relocated to Malta and has been managing the business remotely using sub-contractors. A new owner, who has more time to dedicate to the business could easily return to the fantastic turnover figures that were formerly achieved, the current sale price reflects the recent turnover figures but the opportunity is so much bigger. Furthermore, there is huge scope to grow the business through franchise expansion and increasing maintenance contracts.
