It’s likely that garden maintenance could be seen as seasonal, especially in the UK where climates are so variable. But with most seasonal gardening work, whether it’s a lawn mowing service or lawn care service that’s being offered, when the sun is shining, the gardener is stretched to capacity and managing the admin tasks of the business often gets overlooked.
For patio designers and hedge cutters alike, this is exactly why pocket PA was created. It was designed specifically for any micro business owner who is fantastic at what they do but just doesn’t have spare time to waste doing all the boring admin tasks that are required to run a profitable and thriving business.
