Enjoying Local Life - Nigel's gardening business - and surrounding area


Tired of the extensive travelling in his wholesale business and an increasingly difficult business environment Nigel started to consider the alternatives. "One day I found myself whistling and realised I was really happy doing this gardening kind of work. I knew then that I would love to do this for a living but was worried about generating the work and making the numbers stack up."Nigel said, "There are many 'bit players' in the Sussex area I've noticed since starting. Many with no corporate identity and working from the back of an old estate car. Fine if you're happy to work small scale but I like the idea of having an image that is recognisable and a reputation to match, a chance to develop an area and expand the work force. This professionalism surely raises my business to a higher level and as such my earnings potential.""I started looking at gardening franchises as their business models are tried and tested and this makes it all less risky. I remembered seeing an Ed's Garden Maintenance van.""I went along to an Ed's Discovery Day to find our more. Ed's Garden Maintenance really stood out from the others. I decided this was clearly the business for me."
