Hilton Smythe is delighted to present to the market this well established turn-key trading opportunity. This highly regarded professional business is an owner-run gardening maintenance business with over 11 years trading history. The current owner employs 2 full time members of staff and trading hours are generally Monday to Friday 08:00 to 17:00.

There is a reliable, long-standing customer base included in the sale and the majority of the workload is repeat and regular custom on either a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis. There is great potential to increase the turnover as the business regularly receives enquiries to undertake additional one-off and repeat work. Under current regulations the business is not affected by Covid restrictions and it was able to continue throughout previous lock-downs.

The successful business offers a varied level of services which includes –

Lawn mowing and care
Flower border maintenance and planting
Shrub pruning and shaping
Garden development and advice

The business caters for customers requiring a one-off service, however most of the workload are repeat and regular custom, either fortnightly or monthly.

The ‘turn-key’ all-year-round trading opportunity is now being made available for sale due to our clients' wish to pursue another opportunity. A full business handover will be offered as part of the sale.
