Insurance for lawn care services

Markel Specialty offers specific types of coverage just for the lawn care business.

Only lawn care insurance can offer you the kinds of coverage your business needs.

General liability

Commercial general liability protects against unforeseen claims and lawsuits. It pays settlements, awards, and the legal cost to defend you, your organization, and your employees. It protects your operation’s reputation which is especially important if a lawsuit is brought against you.

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

Excess liability
Covers 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. Excess liability with pollution coverage is also available with limits up to $10 million.


Commercial property insurance covers your property – buildings, sheds, offices. Enhancements you can add on include small tools and equipment coverage, and more.

Business income
Coverage is invaluable if your business is temporarily closed due to a covered loss. This insurance covers 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.

Workers compensation

A workers compensation policy covers expenses resulting from on-the-job injuries including:

  • Lost wages and benefits
  • Medical care and rehabilitation services
  • Legal representation and compliance services

Available in select states. Check availability with your agent.
