Lawn Mowing…and much more besides

Lawn Mowing and many other skills

Mark Stanton has just very recently set up his own gardening business in Ramsgate, providing lawn mowing and many other gardening services. We caught up with Mark to find out how he is getting on in the early days of his new venture. Over to Mark…

My Training

Spring Training Session

“Time really has flown since I decided to go ahead with setting up my Ed’s Gardening Business. Since starting, I’ve had great training on delivering all the core Ed’s services.  These services are  lawn mowing, hedge cutting, pressure washing, turfing etc. All my training needs have been rigorously covered and I’ve felt that I have been more than well-prepared for actually doing the job. In addition, I’ve found that the business skills training has been really good.

Ed’s Spring Training Session

I’ve been very lucky that an Ed’s Spring training session took place a couple of weeks ago. The timing for that was just perfect for me and the content was excellent. The training day gave me a great insight on how to grow my business successfully. In addition, I got the opportunity to meet a lot of other Ed’s Operators. The session really reinforced just what is achievable if you put the right building blocks in place as you go along.”

My Work

“I’ve had some really interesting gardening jobs already. I’m also meeting some really lovely customers and I’m thoroughly enjoying doing my absolute best to ensure that they are really happy with my work.”

A Huge Garden Clearance

“Recently, I’ve worked on a very large garden clearance as one of my first jobs. The garden had not been touched for almost twenty years and it was a big job with a high level of challenge. It’s definitely true that I got huge satisfaction from completing this job. It was a very physical job but immensely rewarding. “

“It was actually a really interesting job for me, a bit like a jigsaw puzzle. To start with, it was impossible to see what the layout of the garden was . It was just one big jumble with layers upon layers of years of growth. Gradually the footprint of the garden started to appear and I could see the care that had initially been taken it laying it all out and adorning it with garden seats and planters. To be honest, it was a bit like a mini Lost Garden of Heligan!”

“I really enjoyed the work but by far the best bit was the fact that the customer was hugely appreciative of the work I did. “

My Five star reviews

“* * * * * Mark has done a fantastic job at my father in-law’s and has brought the garden back under control ready for regular maintenance, would recommend for all garden services.”

The value of a job well done

“I’m finding that I’m getting strong recommendations from happy customers already, which is wonderful for my confidence. I think that’s the best accolade you can get for your work, someone recommending you to a friend, family member or neighbour because you have made a great impression by doing a brilliant job for them. I get huge satisfaction from that.”

My thoughts for the future

“I suspected I would love doing gardening for a living and I do. It’s lovely to see spring all around and I can’t wait to develop my business as much as I can in the season ahead.”

“I know that the lawn mowing season is just beginning. I’m really looking forward to developing lawn mowing and hedge cutting and building u my regular customer base. “
