More than Garden maintenance, - How do you get started on the road to extra profit?

Part 1

As well as your time and effort, what else can you sell to your customers?

 

I firmly believe that the secret to success is to be passionate and knowledgeable about what you do.

 

Unfortunately that isn't the easy part.

Your customers need to know how much you know, and they need to depend and trust in you to get them the right solutions for their garden.

 

Think about all the extras you need for a garden to make it really good,…

on-going team effort!

I posted a blog about this garden 6 weeks ago, and since then the build has continued well. Saying that, I think all builds go through phases when they seem to be taking shape really fast, and others when you wonder if it will ever be finished, and I get the feeling that just now the energy on-site has faded slightly, and they're not yet at that stage when they're so close to finishing that it gets exciting again. Clients get tired of living surrounded by builders and mess, and just want it…

Time for a Clean Up

How often have you seen a tarmac sports surface, at a school or perhaps in a park, looking redundant through lack of care and maintenance? A bit tired and faded where vibrant lines once marked out netball and tennis courts? Suffering from excess moss caused by the shade of overhanging trees? Even if it’s just once, that’s one too many times as far as Technical Surfaces, the UK’s leading artificial surface maintenance providers, is concerned. But such surfaces need not remain…

Resin bound surfacing and the urban landscape

Garden Fencing & Security

Many people don’t bother to look at maximising security

measures for their home and garden until something happens, but there are many

simple things that we can do to make our home secure and it is one thing that

we already have that can be extremely helpful, our garden fence. When looking

to make your garden more secure, garden fencing provides you with something that

can be both practical and attractive. It can serve its purpose, acting as a

deterrent, but can also…

Ways to use your garden fence

Many of us simply see our garden fence as a divide

between us and our neighbours, a marker that sets out what is ours from what is

theirs, or as protection from unwanted animals or intruders. The truth is that

they do not have to just serve a purpose. Instead they can be used to decorate

your garden and can also be used in a number of other interesting ways.

Garden fencing may well be there in order to give you privacy and as a

security measure, but that doesn’t…
