5.0 out of 5 stars excellent book 18 Sep 2007
I started my own business up in May this year and wish I'd bought this book alot earlier. It is excellent and anyone wanting to start up their own business should buy it. The advice given is great and from my own experience I know exactly where he is coming from. It has been through more luck than judgement that I did set up the business the way he suggests in the book. Personally, I wouldn't have set it up any other way because it really gives you a foundation to start from. It has certainly given me alot of ideas to work on and I know I'll always be rereading this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good practical advice 8 Nov 2009
This book is packed with excellent advice both from a business perspective and a horticultural one. Particularly useful is the monthly "What can you offer your clients?" chapter. Helps you to think beyond the obvious lawn care and weeding of borders to help you to offer a complete garden service. If you're thinking of setting up your own enterprise don't start without reading this book.

My wife and I have followed this book to a tee and have found that it covers all bases in starting your own gardening business, right down to the accountancy side of it. We are now at the point where work is starting to come in and we are about to go at it full-time.

Thanks for your help Paul.
