A gardening service maintains the gardens of residential and business premises. Services range from cleanup, cutting and mowing to pruning and pest control. Here is how to start and run a gardening service.

Getting Started
To start this business you need to have some gardening skills or hire people who has. Even if you do have the skills that does not mean you will be doing the hard labour yourself, most gardening service owners have labourers that do the physical work and then they just manage things.

Services
This business offers various services:
Grass cutting services
Garden cleanups
Pruning and trimming
Pest management
Weed control
Fertilising
Lawn edging etc.
There are also supplementary services you can offer such as irrigation and roll on lawn or artificial grass.

Business Model
To turn this into a profitable and sustainable business you must go from doing an occasional lawn now and then to weekly, fortnightly or monthly contracts. This will ensure recurring income. To grow this business you must focus on the management and maintenance of corporate and housing estate gardens. Many of these places don’t want the burden of a full time gardener they want someone to come in maybe twice a month. If you can secure this type of work this can be a great business, it does not require a lot of skill and it does not require a lot of capital but it is hard work.

Equipment needed
To start this business you will need a bakkie or a car and a trailer, then you will need equipment:
Lawnmower
Weed Eater
Chainsaw
Hedge Trimmer
Wheelbarrow
Garden Pitchforks
Garden Spades
Garden Rakes
Poison Spray cans
Blower

The quantity will depend on how much work you have and how many guys you have working for you.

Target Market
As mentioned in business model the ideal way to grow this business is to focus on housing estates, apartment blocks and corporate gardens. But this does not mean you cannot target the average homeowner, you can but you have to go to the more affluent areas. For people in poor areas to hire a gardener it is a luxury, but in more affluent areas people have more disposable income and less time and inclination to spend on cleaning their own gardens.
