Do I need experience to become part of Fantastic Gardeners?
Yes, the minimum we'll need from you is practical gardening experience, sufficient command of English, knowledge of some basic gardening terminology, and the ability to perform a variety of jobs. We offer packages which include equipment purchase or hire and vehicle leasing, too.
What tools do I need to start?
You can start with a basic pack of tools for garden maintenance: such as scissors, hedge trimmer, petrol mower, strimmer, weeder, jet washer etc. and extend it in the future as your franchise, qualification and service portfolio grow.
What happens in the winter?
Our customers keep us busy up to Christmas - we continue to do garden clean up, hedge trimming, tree surgery, basic lawn care etc in December. Once you become part of Fantastic Services, you can also provide gutter cleaning, jet washing or Christmas trees delivery and decoration during the winter season. Most partners take a holiday in January, as it is the best time to take a break before the start of the busy spring season.
I want to start but can’t afford to buy equipment/vehicle for the type of service I need?
We can help you get started easily. We offer a number of options for rental or lease of equipment, and a vehicle if delivering your service requires one. All you need to do is let us know and we'll be happy to discuss it with you. Vehicles though, are only available to partners, who are able to provide finance details for the annual payroll and wageroll and are subject to credit check before getting acceptance on a funding deal.
