What can I say, tired, not rich, but every day when I go home I feel as if I have achieved something and a happy customers thanks for the effort I have put in is worth more than money. I get cut, bruised, and thorns are a regular hazard, but I'm happy and can sleep at night.
I will cut lawns,hedges and minor hard landscaping, but I'm a gardener not Love Your Garden or Ground Force and I make that clear before I start. I tell them the truth of what they need or don't need, what will live and what won't. Sometimes they don't like what I say, but if your'e honest and give good frank advice with an explanation, they will understand and 99% do.
So choose your area, and don't make promises you can't keep or offer something you can't deliver.
That's what I do and I stick to it and my customers are happy.
