The nation’s public greenspaces, sports grounds and gardens have never been more valuable. And this new emphasis on making more of outdoor spaces is set to continue, as the Government has announced plans to increase the understanding of how important the natural environment is to society as a whole, but also to the UK economy. Landscaping services for homeowners can cash in on the new trend to 'improve, not move' during economic uncertainty. According to one survey, nine out of ten homeowners now 'go big' when landscaping their gardens, primarily to create outdoor living space. But alongside that are substantial landscaping contracts for schools, hospitals, hotels, commercial properties and sports facilities. A further niche can be found in landscaping for environmental protection projects or private estates and stately homes.
So where does this leave someone who dreams of starting their own landscaping business, or an ambitious entrepreneur seeking to set up in more than one location to secure lucrative public and private sector contracts? The time is certainly right to go ahead, but the branding and business management backing of a franchiser can ensure your start-up has 'fertile ground'. This includes vital help with the compliance and indemnity issues surrounding the provision of landscaping services. Also, preferential rates on equipment and support with the technology websites you need to grow a business. Countrywide Grounds Maintenance is an award-winner also looking for new franchisees. Alternatively, you could opt for a more general franchise partner, offering landscaping alongside other gardening help, such a Ed's Garden Maintenance. You could even consider Lawn Keeper, an interior landscaping business seeking new partners.
