Starting a gardening business can be a rewarding venture for those with a green thumb. However, one critical question often arises: Do I need a trailer to start a gardening business? The short answer is no, but utilising garden trailers can significantly simplify your operations. Garden trailers are essential in efficiently transporting gardening supplies, tools, and oversized items such as ride-on mowers, push mowers, whipper snippers, blower vacs, brooms, and rakes. Additionally, they provide ample space for disposing of garden and lawn clippings, making them an indispensable asset for your gardening business.
Why Garden Trailers are a Game-Changer
Ease of Transport: Garden trailers offer a convenient solution to haul all your gardening necessities in one trip. This efficiency is crucial, especially when working with multiple clients or large properties.
Space Management: With a garden trailer, you can manage space effectively, carrying both your tools and the green waste you collect. This dual-purpose utility makes garden trailers an excellent investment.
Professionalism: Utilising a garden trailer enhances your professional image. It shows your clients you are well-equipped and serious about your gardening business. They can even be painted to match your business branding and logo and then sign-written to promote your business name, services and contact details.
Exploring Garden Trailer Options
For aspiring garden businesses, there are three main choices when choosing a garden trailer:
Standard Design Garden Trailers:
These are typically box trailers with a cage, cage cover, and aluminium ramps. They are versatile and can cater to many basic gardening needs.
Purpose-Built Garden Trailers:
These are usually box trailers with a tilting mechanism and ramp, allowing easy loading of ride-on mowers. Hot dip galvanised models are popular for their durability. These trailers can be accessorised with items like a trailer cage, ladder rack, and toolboxes, providing more specific solutions for gardening requirements.

Custom Designed and Built Garden Trailers:
For those with specific needs, custom garden trailers are ideal. Features might include a large box at the back, a tool box at the front, side access with a ramp for loading push mowers, split rear ramps for loading mowers and rubbish, internal tie-down points, a swing-out barn door, drop axle, cage, and even a jerry can holder for mower fuel and a mower tray at the front.
