Any ideas where I can get a basic contract to start, just to get some ideas as to what I should be looking at?

Thanks very much for your words of encouragement Dave, they are much appreciated.

My main issue is setting out the written contract as it is something I have never had to do as my maintenance gardens which I have are all by verbal agreement and ongoing communication between myself and the client/s hence the reason I am looking for help in this area.

Hi All,

 

I run a small gardening business caring for small domestic gardens and have recently been given the opportunity to attain a larger scale garden maintenance contract for to high end gardens, I have the necessary experience and qualifications to maintain the gardens and manage a team of people large enough to undertake the works but have never had to put together a maintenance schedule/contract.

Can anyone on here assist me with this or provide me with a sample from which I can then work, there are approx 10 acres of garden per property to include various shrub beds, a forest area, various shrub and flower beds near the main house, a wetland area, vast lawn areas and gravel/paved drives and paths all of these are fairly mature with a large array of planting and vegetation.

 

The gardens have been neglected for a while and our current agreement is to come in for a week to get the gardens to a stage where they will then become more manageable thus requiring less man power on a weekly basis.

 

Any help will be highly appreciated.

 

Regards

Thanks to all for your help and advice, I am happy to confirm that we have made a decission on a planting scheme and will begin with the flower beds during the summer holidays, having the gardens ready for the start of the new school year in September.

 

Regards

Thanks all for the bits and bobs of advice. The school caters for boys aged 11 upwards and currently has some of the plants mentioned by Julie Stakes in the Heads garden area which is a main throughfare for visitors and students alike.

This is my first school contract and thus far they are overwhelmed with what we have done at the school but I am very wary about the Litigious society we now live in and this is why I seek advice on some shrubs that would blend in well as a herbacious border and still not make the current roses etc look out of place.

Many Thanks

This much is true but unless you have good soft soil a tiller will just bounce off the top and all good things come to those who create by working on it.

Hi, does anyone have an idea of where one could buy a descent digging fork as all seem to be really flimsy these days and the tines just bend easily?
