The Importance of Business Insurance for Landscape Gardeners

As a landscape gardener, your focus is on creating and designing outside spaces for a range of clients, from homeowners to commercial organisations.

Watching a project come to fruition is undoubtedly satisfying, but it isn’t without its risks, so comprehensive insurance cover is essential. Working in all weather conditions with potentially dangerous equipment leaves you vulnerable to risks. The tools and equipment you use are potential hazards to the general public and could potentially leave you facing a liability claim in the event of an accident. Tools don’t come cheaply either, so theft or accidental damage could leave you unable to work until they’ve been replaced.

You face enough challenges in your working day without leaving yourself vulnerable to claims. Your work is so specialised, which means you require insurance cover to match.
