Five years ago, I moved from South Africa where I cultivated two acres. Now I am back outdoors. After working as a carpenter and handyman in the UK, I found the Ed's Garden Maintenance franchise. I worried about the amount of work, but I have plenty of referrals from current customers and new leads..
