My name is Robert and I started Young's Gardening Services in 2013.
It all started with a second hand lawnmower I bought which had seen better days. Along with this, I had some second hand tools passed onto me from my partner's grandfather. Armed with these, I set out with an advert on social media offering garden maintenance services.
I had the bare minimum of tools and had to borrow a strimmer from my father-in-law and used our family car to get around. It started out on a part time basis, doing odd jobs as and when I could, growing slowly taking on jobs after work and weekends.
The first brand new tool I bought was a mattock which was used on a job to remove old bushes from a large raised planter on a farm house driveway. This was one of the first jobs we ever carried out; afterwards we started getting work in slowly and getting bigger jobs. The largest project I had up to the summer was a patio which can be seen in the gallery.
In August 2013 I went full time after being laid off from my full time job. Rather than looking for another job, I took the the plunge and went full time and its paid off thanks to help and advice from the Prince's Trust and the Fredericks Foundation, along with Start Up UK. I no longer had to keep going around with a Vauxhall Corsa and a borrowed trailer, I now had a van. All businesses have to start from somewhere and I started with everything borrowed and second hand.
Today we are still growing, our customer base is constantly growing, I have many repeat customers and all are satisfied with work carried out.
