Benton Landscapes are registered gardeners/garden designers covering everything from ground maintenance to landscaping. We visited gardener Charlie Benton onsite at a job to find out how he grew his business and client base.
Charlie Benton has been into landscaping and gardening since he was a little boy. Having spent a lot of time outdoors growing up, gardening soon turned into a passion which developed into a career as a gardener.
To build up his client base and start getting regular work, he turned to Rated People. One of the job leads he chose didn’t have much of a description but he took a gamble and that gamble paid off.
“I found the job, I phoned the client. It turned out three years later I’m still here – same job, repeat work, full-time gardening through every season.”
Watch his story in the video below:
For Charlie, being a member means he’s in charge of his work. “I feel like I can jump in when work’s a little bit slack and then I can step back when I’m busy. I feel like I’m always in control so it gives me the flexibility of managing my own schedule”.
