Ed's Garden Maintenance

Company Overview

Ed’s Garden Maintenance provides a customer-focused garden service for business and domestic users aiming to provide the work on the same day. The services offered include lawn mowing, strimming, hedge cutting, garden clearance and pressure washing. Founded in 2003, Ed’s started franchising in 2007 and is constantly evolving to be the best it can be for both customers and operators. Ed’s has been running for over 7 years with a target growth of 3–5 operators a year.

Franchise Overview

Each operator is encouraged to build goodwill into their business such that it can be monetised when an operator chooses to move on. In recent re-sales, outgoing operators have doubled and in some cases quadrupled their initial investment as well as providing a decent income during their time with Ed’s. This has been enabled through developing real-time mobile technology to give instant visibility and through effective regional marketing spend. Marketing has delivered £18.00 in revenue for every £1.00 invested.
