We’re currently looking for Flower Power Garden Care franchisees to join the team.
Freedom & flexibility
When you choose a Flower Power Garden Care franchise, you’re entering into a lifestyle that allows you to work when you want in a territory you choose. Spend less time commuting and more time with family and friends. Put in the hard yakka one day and knock off early the next. It’s up to you.
More than just mowing
AAs a Flower Power Garden Care franchisee, you offer your clients a complete gardening service – from garden maintenance, planting and irrigation to entire garden makeovers. Flower Power is a trusted, well-loved retail brand and each week hundreds of customers visiting our stores want to know how they can take advantage of our great service around their home.
Grow without limit
There’s limitless income potential as a Flower Power Garden Care franchisee. A turnover of over $150,000 is a realistic goal, but many of our established franchisees turnover up to $300,000 a year. Many began on their own with one trailer and now have several trailers and employees working for them, all with ongoing training and support from Flower Power. With no restrictions on the number of employees or vehicles you can have, you can grow without limit. We also offer a genuine 12-week income guarantee period on commencement, which you can take advantage of to help you focus on building your business in a positive, measured manner.
No experience necessary
From finance and manufacturing to the service industry, our franchisees have made the tree change from all walks of life. But they all have three things in common: a can-do attitude, a willingness to learn and a desire to take control of their work and life.
Work close to home
We offer a range of territories in the Sydney metro area, all with ample room for you to grow your business. Most of our franchisees choose an area that’s close to home to give them flexibility and reduce running costs.
Low entry cost
A low entry cost of $24,000 plus $5,000 – $9,000 for your trailer and equipment (depending on trailer size) will give you everything you need to start your business. We don’t charge for leads or a percentage of your turnover. Instead, we offer a flat-rate monthly service fee, giving you the security of fixed costs and leaving you free to go about growing your business.
Support from Australia’s largest retail garden centre business
With 10 Flower Power garden centres across Sydney, you’re never too far from great products and advice. As a Flower Power franchisee, you’re given preferential service, delivery and pricing across all stores and our wholesale growing nursery, Arborglen. This equals minimal downtime and the opportunity to make a margin on products over and above the labour costs billed to your clients. In addition, you have direct access to a fantastic support network of qualified landscapers, garden designers and horticulturalists.
It can be daunting going into a business on your own but we’re with you every step of the way. In your first few months, we’ll work closely with you. Even as your business grows, we’re only ever a phone call away for guidance and support. Unlike many other franchises, we also provide hands-on support. If you need a hand on a job, we’ll be there with our sleeves rolled up ready to help, because your success is our success.

What does a typical day look like?
There’s no such thing as a typical day as a Flower Power Garden Care franchisee, and that’s the beauty of this business. One day you may be redesigning a garden, the next you may be maintaining a strata property or doing scheduled garden maintenance, irrigation or turfing.
Do you offer finance?
Yes, finance is available to approved applicants, which we are happy to discuss with you upon your application.
Do you provide professional advice?
We highly recommend you see your solicitor and accountant before signing the Franchisee Agreement. If financing, you will also need to consult with your business planner to ensure you’re financially prepared.
Do you offer a trial?
Yes. Before you undertake a Garden Care franchise, we give you the opportunity to do a trial. This trial period can be anywhere from four hours to two weeks, and involves spending time on the job with our franchisees to get a feel for the business and ensure it meets your expectations.
What kind of training do you provide?
Once you’ve signed your Franchisee Agreement, you’ll undergo a two-week formal training program, which includes:
Residential and commercial garden maintenance
Plant identification and culture
Pest identification and culture
Soil and landscape supplies
General handyman requests
Bookkeeping, quoting, invoicing and maintenance
Small landscaping projects
I wish to further my industry knowledge. Will you support my study?
We’re always here to teach and guide you, but we also welcome the opportunity for you to expand on your knowledge of the industry so that you can better your business.
How long before I’m up and running?
Within four weeks, you’ll be ready to do business. From your first in-person interview with us, we give you two weeks to discuss the franchise with your solicitor and accountant. After this two week period, you’ll be the proud owner of your own Flower Power Garden Care franchise. This will be followed by a two-week training program.
