Ideal first business or 'add on'

Ref: C 923

Tenure: Home Based

A rare opportunity has arisen to purchase a well established and profitable garden maintenance business covering domestic gardens throughout the York general area.  The business could be run by one person, probably requiring part time assistance during the summer months and is concerned with general garden maintenance including grass cutting, hedge trimming, weeding etc.   Many clients take out annual maintenance plans which guarantees monthly income whilst others use the services provided on a monthly or ad hoc basis.  In addition to the usual maintenance tasks referred to, there are always opportunities for additional income from work such as patio cleaning, tree pruning, lawn treatments etc.

The business has been established for over 9 years and we are informed that the income for the 2017 to 2018 year was around £30,000 net of VAT. Overheads are minimal – transport, machinery maintenance and repair, insurance and subsistence so we estimate that net income will be around £24,000 to £25,000 excluding any staffing costs.

The business operates on a fortnightly rota split into particular areas for ease of operation, and areas covered include Huntington, Haxby and Wigginton, Strensall, Fulford, Stockton Lane etc. There really is no limit to the areas which could be covered if required.

In our opinion, this is an ideal business for a gardening enthusiast who wishes to turn a hobby into a thriving business or for someone already in a similar business who is looking expansion.


Only £12,500 for the full customer list. The current owner will ensure there is a smooth handover period including introductions to all customers.
