Steve's gardening business

A new life at forty

Hersham and surrounding area.

Well, here I am coming up to my 10th anniversary as an Ed's Operator. My business and my children have certainly grown a lot but one thing stays the same - I still love cricket and, with Ed's, I've had the freedom to develop my youth cricket coaching in parallel with growing my Ed's business. I've recently got some prestigious awards for my coaching, which means a lot to me. I would never have had the freedom to achieve this in my previous job.

Maybe life does begin at 40. At 39, my career as a salesman in the motor industry was going nowhere. I loved gardening so I invested in an Ed's Garden Maintenance franchise. I liked the relatively low start-up costs and was given support in accountancy, marketing, business management and training. Within a year, I exceeded all my expectations. Five years later I have 70 regular customers and two staff and can afford to take time out to be a volunteer coach at a children's cricket academy. I've just signed up for my second five-year term with Ed's and my business supports the whole family, so my wife is considering leaving her job.

Grasping the nettle

Steve / Ascot

Well here I am, four years down the line! Being part of Ed's has been a real personal growth journey for me. I can't quite believe how much I have developed in confidence, never mind skills. It was as if, when I took on the responsibility of running my own Ed's business, I developed the confidence ..

20% return on investment

Zoran / Chelsea (London)

I recently acquired an established garden maintenance business from an existing Ed's Operator, who had spent five years growing a successful business and wanted to cash it in and do something different. I have a background in the service sector and wanted to buy my own business to run. I wasn't too ..
