Hilton Smythe are delighted to present to the market a highly renowned family run garden maintenance business with over 10 years trading history.

The ‘turn-key’ opportunity is now being made available for sale due to ill health and our clients will ensure a full business handover will be offered as part of the sale.

The successful business offers a varied level of services which includes –

  • Lawn cutting and lawn care, shaping & advice

  • Flower border trimming, maintenance & planting

  • Pruning, potting & planting advice

  • Fencing, stone flagging, gravel/pebble features

  • General landscaping advice

  • Larger commercial maintenance work (inc offices & apartment blocks)

We are advised 60% of the work carried out is for residential customers and 40% for larger commercial customers.

There are over 75 registered customers, many of which require a fortnightly visit (especially through the spring/summer months).

Due to the ill health and very unfortunate personal loss, the turnover in recent years clearly shows the time taken away from the business which also included the use of more external staffing to keep the customer base serviced.

Our clients are constantly turning away work which any new owner will be able to capitalise on from the start.

There is a very loyal customer base to be included in this sale, as well lots of opportunity for any new owner to significantly increase the current turnover levels. We would advise any of the following would have an instant boost –

  • Improve the current website

  • Add a new Facebook / social media presence

  • Carry out a new customer leaflet drop

  • Extend the current area covered

  • Tender for more commercial work

  • Add patio, terraces & fixed garden features

Testimonials (customers)

"Before GAP came to look after our garden, it looked weary and the grass was in really poor condition. Now we have beautiful gardens and the lawns are lush and green, which are the envy of our neighbours. But now our neighbours use GAP so we all have great looking gardens. Thank you GAP." - Mr J Carson, Penwortham, Preston

"We are a care home in the community and we have a large extensive garden with lots of trees, shrubs and plants and it's too much for us to look after. GAP take very good care of the garden and they have the knowledge to know what to do with all the foliage and they keep the garden and grounds looking superb and safe for the girls." - House Manager, Nina, Burscough, Ormskirk

Very rarely do local business types of this size, location and opportunity come onto the open market and we therefore recommend early enquiry to avoid disappointment.
