I find as soon as may arrives i am sruggling on my own,i have weekly commercial contracts i manage and mix of a few flats and residential gardens, all can be alot of pressure and alot of grass cutting and bushes . Ive run a buinsess for 9 years , only do maintenance.
At minuite i am liturally grass cutting all day not much time to do much else in the gardens. I either cut back work and take it a bit easyier. Or think about employing but i think that will eat my profits and dont actually earn a huge amount myself after all the expenses etc. . Where do i go....
I did try employing years back on tmporary basis, but then i had loads more residential 2 hour jobs, it become a day of driving and tools in and out rush rush to get the jobs done. didnt really work now ive moved on from these smaller type jobs and gained more commercial contracts through word of mouth.
I lost a few big sites last year 7k of work, felt the pressure i suppoe i cant do everything and keep everything tip top on my own. Should i think about employing temporary staff?
Im 38 now and my interest is planting and creating a garden really rather than grass cutting and bushes. Can get sole destroying on your own all day long thinking more grass. Ive even thought of giving it all up to be a head gardener postion as dislike the driving everywere involved and problems of mowers breaking ...
I feel my skills are more a trained horticulture than just a grass cutter.
