Gardening and outdoor franchises can turn your love of the open air into a business.
“You could start a gardening business on your own, but a franchise is likely to be less risky”, says Sarah Whaley, who invested in an Ed’s Garden Maintenance franchise six years ago.
” I was working in sales, but, I wanted my own business,” sayes Sarah, from London.
‘I decided the franchise would be a good start because I had no business experience and Ed’s provided training, support, group marketing help and a known brand from day one,” she sayes.
Sarah, now 29, has grown her business to 45 regular customers and she employs three staff.
Ed Mauleverer, founder of Ed’s sayes:”Anyone can start a gardening service, but a franchise gives you a welcome helping hand.”
“You get the marketing and business know-how to turn it into a professional business that returns a good income rather than living hand to mouth. Investment is Â£10,000 plus van and equipment.

Ed’s Garden Maintenance have been set the challenge of making sure bamboo is removed from a front garden and will not return. As you can see a digger has been required as the depth of excavation required is 700mm to make sure all the roots are removed.
