gardening for a living

Lots of people do make a living at it Kevin.

I don't know how knowledgeable a gardener you are or will be but I'd try and set up as a bit more than someone who mows, cuts hedges and weeds. Learn how to prune properly rather than cutting back to fit. Know what plants are and how to treat them. You'll then get a good reputation among people who want more than a square lawn and 'a bit of colour' which will make it more interesting for you

roots in soil

Hi eddm, welcome to the forum

I'd remove some of the roots, you'll break them when you dig anyway.

Soil next to a wall tends to be rather dry. I suggest you make that border quite a bit wider so you don't need to plant close to the wall. It will be better for the plants and look less 'mean'

Give it a good dig and get some muck/compost in there if you can.
