Markel offers coverage specifically designed for lawn care professionals .

Your business is all about growing healthy lawns and landscapes. But if you want to help your business bloom with healthy growth, you need insurance coverage specifically created for professional lawn care and landscaping companies.

Why is insurance for lawn care businesses important?

You've probably spent more than one sleepless night thinking about the many ways your business could get sued. If you misapply chemicals, damage your client’s property while mowing or get in an accident with your truck that causes toxic liquids to spill, you could be responsible for paying these out of your own pocket if you don't have the proper insurance.

Lawn care insurance can help you protect yourself and your business if something goes wrong and can help you cover your property, tools and equipment, general liability, professional liability, excess liability, plus many other coverages specific to your business that you never thought about.

What we offer

Markel offers a wide-range of coverages designed for the following types of lawn and landscape businesses: 

  • Lawn care and maintenance
  • Pesticide and herbicide application
  • Tree, shrub, plant installation

Our coverages can include:

General liability
Commercial general liability insurance coverage is for unforeseen claims and lawsuits. It can cover settlements, awards, and the legal cost to defend you, your organization and your employees.

Professional liability
Professional liability coverage for your employees is included at no additional cost with your commercial general liability insurance.

Excess liability
Can cover losses that may exceed your policy limits. Catastrophic losses such as death, a major chemical spill, an injured worker or an auto accident can result in awards that are greater than the typical policy limit.

Commercial property insurance can cover your property – buildings, sheds, offices. Enhancements you can add to this coverages can include small tools and equipment coverage, and more.

Business income
This type of coverage is invaluable if your business is temporarily closed due to a covered loss. This insurance can cover your lost income and continuing expenses during the “period of restoration.” With this important coverage, your lawn care operation can receive the revenues it would have earned had there been no loss.

A workers compensation policy can cover expenses resulting from on-the-job injuries including lost wages and benefits, medical care and rehabilitation services, and legal representation and compliance services.
