Starting a Garden or Landscape Business by John Mason

With Mason's flair for presenting horticultural and agricultural advice in simple but comprehensive format, this book tells you how to get started in a gardening or landscaping business. 

There are numbers of specialised areas within gardening and landscaping which offer expanding business possibilities in our increasingly busy society. Mason gives a run-down on equipment and contract conventions as well as general comments on services such as lawn mowing, pruning, tree lopping, and weeding, pest control, rubbish control and landscape contracting. His advice includes commonsense evaluations of pitfalls to avoid, safety issues, licence requirements and time commitments.
