I am based in West Herefordshire Claire & yes you are on to a good idea. I have spoken to a couple of lady gardeners this week as well as a chap today who does a lot of commercial mowing, he just happened to be over the road with his fancy shredder. They all have my card & I suggested we help each other out in the future.
Claire Brown said:Where are you based? (your profile doesn't say, as most people on this site are UK, maybe put your county even if you don't want your town known)- I love doing weeding and pruning and won't do lawn mowing and hedgetrimming - why not partner yourself up with someone like me, !
Would the strap line 'Garden, Countryside & Woodland Services' sound ok? It sums up what I do & am geared up for.
without reading other comments:
im called gardens 4u !!
i have always put : maintenance , landscaping & design (in different orders)
for years , so many calls 'do you do weeding?' or that was the job required.
eventually (never my favourite, as bending all week isnt too good on my neck)/back....
i either charged £15 now £20 an hr or i said i can spray it (weed control) , do bark/weed supressant, gravel?
then my brother did it - sometimes i made a few pounds an hr from the job, maybe £1 an hr.
sometimes i just said ' not really' , but usually 98% i went to look.
when i turned up , i arranged my brother (knowledgable), or ended up mowing, spraying, doing a bit and got asked to cut hedges etc (bigger jobs)
do you have all the kit : prof , petrol. new big and reliable machinesready to do the 'bigger' jobs???
if so : tell them what you do, but you end up gradually getting more and bigger jobs each year basically.
good luck, (sometimes you have to sell your self / and your price)
