Things You Will Need
To closely follow the guidelines listed in this article on how to start a garden maintenance business.
The first step to starting a garden maintenance business is to research the area where you plan to start the business. You will want to set up your garden maintenance business in an affluent area where people tend to have bigger gardens and also have the money to pay someone to maintain them. This type of business would be discretionary spending for someone. If they run low on money your services would probably be one of the first things they cut out of their budget, so make sure you go to an area where people can afford your services
The second step to starting a garden maintenance business is to advertise a specific area where you have expertise. For example, if you have a vast knowledge of organic gardening this could be a great selling point. Organic gardens are very popular, and if you emphasize your skill in this area you can fill this niche and grow your business.
The third step to starting a garden maintenance business is to build your word of mouth advertising. Garden maintenance is a business that can be grown largely through word of mouth advertising(and there is nothing better than free advertising) if you treat your customers right. So to grow your business through this type of advertising offer your current customers a discount if they refer a new customer to you. Then print business cards and display your referral discount so that all your current customers who have your business card are aware of the discount to them.
