A MID Cheshire resident has opened up a new franchise gardening business for the area and the surrounding villages.

Rob Chisholm has signed a deal to be the 'Jim’s Mowing' franchisee for mid Cheshire.

He still lives in the area with his wife and two children and has worked and has lived here in the area all of his life.

Rob told the Guardian that the 'Jim’s Mowing' franchise has been an ideal move.

“It enables me to fulfill my dream of running my own business, but also to have a fantastic network of support and training,” he said.

“I also like to be part of a brand that fits in with the same ethos I have of wanting to deliver the highest levels of customer service.”

With more than 20 years experience in gardening, also gaining RHS qualifications along with the licenses to provide lawn treatments, Rob decided to start 'Jims Mowing' in Northwich.

All Jim’s mowers are only selected after they have shown the skills and experience needed to provide a professional service.

Rob added: “All of Jim’s are fully insured and qualified including cpc checked to ensure all the customers garden needs are fully fullfiled with peace of mind.”

Rob told the Guardian passionate about his business and is looking forward to sharing his knowledge with his new customers.

“I have recently been working in some of the finest RHS gardens in the country helping me to add and provide a similar service to my customers,” he said.

“I enjoy all aspects of garden care, love working outdoors and am passionate about delivering the highest level of customer satisfaction. Nothing pleases me more than to get a ‘Wow’ from a customer after doing a thorough garden clear up, or the sight of a freshly mown healthy lawn.

“It pleases me even more of course if I get a personal referral from a happy customer.”

Rob will also be sharing some of his knowledge each month to the readers of the Guardian, with his new 'gardeners diary' feature, helping you plan out your gardening for the year ahead.
