Here is another neat niche within the green industry. This article is about Fareeda whos business mainly takes care of garden plants. It is an interesting line of work. I would guess you wouldn't need to make too much investment in equipment. I would like to know how they charge.

Have you run into any other businesses locally like this one? What do you think of the concept and business model?

She specialises in the care of garden plants (http://www.stabroeknews.com/index.pl/article_business?id=54408265) - For just about a year now she has been working to extend her market share in a still unheralded but continually growing sector which she believes will one day bring her the entrepreneurial success that she so earnestly seeks.

Fareeda is the major partner in Professional Plant Maintenance Service, a fledgling horticultural service that specializes in the care and treatment of garden plants, the creation and maintenance of gardens and lawns and the landscaping of open spaces. It is as much a labour of love as a profession for a woman whose modest Thomas Street cottage is almost concealed behind a thicket of vegetation and garden plants which she says she tends "purely for the love of it."

Her venture into a business of her own came after 11 years of experience as an employee of a private sector agency that offered the same service. "I had reached a point where I thought that I may as well do it for myself," Fareeda told Stabroek Business.
