3. Growth Opportunities

Once you’ve established yourself as a successful garden business owner, whether you perform services yourself or manage your own team, you will be given the option to consider expanding your business to other areas and hire more gardening teams.

As Fantastic Services is not limited to gardening services only, neither are you. We have other franchise opportunities available for the following services, in case you’d like to extend your service portfolio:

4. Flexibility of Work

What this means is that you pick the areas you’d like to practice your gardening skills in. Your working hours and jobs per day will depend on your personal schedule preferences. Find your perfect work/life balance that matches your individual and business needs.

No matter what your schedule is, we will strive to provide you with gardening appointments. Typically, an experienced gardening team can complete from 4 to 5 jobs per day, and the average cost of a gardening service exceeds £100.

5. Easy to Use Integrated Systems

You can easily manage your business online, whether it is on your computer or smartphone at any time.

Our BFantastic app sends you current information about jobs in your schedule directly to your mobile device. The software is designed to simplify your daily work and connect you faster with Customer Service and/or the client via predefined text messages, take and send photos of the property and record the time spent on each task.

A convenient custom made CRM (Customer Relationship Management) system helps manage your jobs and keep your pulse on all bookings: track your earnings, team performance, and services performed.
