    Well its easy you should consentrate 100% on your windows

    but saying that i worked with a company last year who had 2 weeks of gardening and 2 weeks of windows he said he likes the change and we was flat out from march onwards lol
    but to do gardening proper is expensive petrol things brake ect ect more

    i dont see anything wrong with doing a few gardens if you need the cash and the jobs come around easy but i wouldnt go looking for a strimming round myself

    if you really need some stable income mate look at cleaning jobs 10-12hrs a week youll get £70-80 a week then and you can do the windows after that ull prob only work 1-2 hrs a day and its easy money and stable

    I would focus mainly on windows, but nothing wrong with a bit of add on work if you want it.

    I only do windows, but just finished my day today with 2 gutter cleans, and one of them wanted a tiny bit of hedge trimmed and something stuck up on the wall. You may aswell do it while you're there- extra money & customer is happy.

    ive got a landscape business and let me tell you when its good it good and when it bad its sh1t lol,can make tons of cash in the summer but winter is dead most of the time,at some point im thinking of going pure windy as money comes fast and is you pick up work better than any other job.

    plus theres alot of so called landscapers that set up and do stuff cheap as chips so you have some comp.

    id so do it but do it as a weekend thing money for old rope;)

    Wierd, I've been asked to do a garden today and I got the time so thinking about it. Bloke only wants overgrown grass cutting down and mowing then mowing bi-weekly through summer and his landlords willing to pay well. I say while ya rounds building up every little helps and ya can always jack it in later.

    You may aswell Gav get you a few extra quid and keep you busy. I get asked all the time about doing different things, I wouldn't do anything I wouldn't feel confident of doing a good job but most the time I'd take the opportunity.. Or if I didn't have time I'd just pay someone else to do it and still make a few quid too lol
