I know this is an old thread, but i like the red rovers, had one since 1985, & got another new one last october. The new one is a bit "flash" compared to the old boy, but is slightly larger at 21". Never had a missed beat from the old one, though it was only domestic use, but i did use it from last october to cut lawns commercialy. Just changed the oil & cleaned the plug today & it started up.
I joined the forum a couple of weeks ago ,after coming across it while looking for info on tripod laddes(now got one.) Started trading last october(after taking early retirement), & have been fortunate to bid for & get a commercial contract, & now also have 4 regular domestic maintanence jobs, & other work is coming in slowly.
Hi Eleanor, I started out after studying at Writtle, and to be honest it can take a while to get things going but after people know your hard working and dedicated then suddenly you will get a flock of clients. However I would as others have mentioned don't go too cheap, I don't know about Cambridge, but if your going to be a sole trader then have prices for pruning, weeding etc and others for hedgetrimming, as tools can cost a small fortune. This site is a awesome place for information and friendly help
has any one got any costing for different types of mowers .i am trying to work out running costs ie repair costs, fuel costs ,servicing, i seen the costings in prolandscaper mag sept 2013 but i like other peoples views
Hi all I'm looking for some advice . How much can I charge per hour for pressure washing ? I've got a petrol pressure washer . Many thanks Andrew .
I know it's a cliché, but there is no such thing on here as a stupid question on this forum. Try and read as much as you can here, there is so much real world information from people out doing the job day in day out.
Don't be afraid to look up old threads they are worth their weight in gold.
Hi Eleanor I've been up and running a couple of years now - don't worry that you won't get any clients - you'll soon be fending them off (!). Don't price yourself too cheaply. This site is a wealth of info - search on anything and you'll find loads of top tips :)
Hi Eleanor. Lots of useful info on this site. Search for any topics you like and find a wealth of practical street-smart info from people in the trade. I would say the horticulture is the easy (ish!) part. Concentrate on being excellent at operating the business side of things and you will be successful. Good luck!
Welcome to LJN...I do hope you find it useful:)
Without wishing to put you off asking questions (because we welcome that:) there is also a search bar situated at the top of the site.
You'll find many topics on garden maintenance and business.
I'm also here to help (that goes for anyone else) so please don't hesitate to shout.
Don't be afraid to say NO to work you don't want or if you smell trouble!
