HOME & GARDEN aims to offer a one-stop-shop for access to local traders.

Is your garden neglected, is your home in need of some tender loving care; do you need things fixing, repairing or completely rebuilt? Then Home & Garden can put you in touch with reliable traders who can help you do the job!

Home & Garden is the brain-child of David Freer (35) from Hedon. David says:

“I’d been around for over 12 months doing handyman work for lots of people in Hedon and surrounding Villages. It started after helping out an elderly lady in Keyingham who had been ripped off, it really made my blood boil knowing that a rogue trader had taken advantage of this vulnerable old lady.” 

On this occasion the lady managed to get things sorted and David was called in to help with some of the smaller jobs the lady had. However, generally as a handyperson David found himself being asked to do other jobs too.

“Because of the popularity of my handyman service, I started getting jobs I wasn’t in a position to take on such as gas and electric or specialist trades like plastering and tiling, so rather than refusing the job I subcontracted them to local qualified and trusted tradesmen and that’s how I started the management side of things and set up the ‘one-stop-shop’.

“The new sub-contracting business began to take up most of my time, and in the last six-weeks it’s become what is now known as Home & Garden connecting customers with reliable and reputable traders.  

“I currently have over 50 traders on my books from decorators, roofers, cleaners and tilers right over to landscape gardeners, electricians and plumbers all local and fully qualified however I’m still looking for more of the above and trades of all descriptions.”

In a new development Home & Garden is also aiming to provide services for local estate and letting agents.

Home & Garden is yet another example of an entrepreneurial approach that uses Facebook to reach its customers, but the company can also be contacted via e-mail and mobile.

  1. Good thinking Dave. As a regular customer of ours you’re probably aware that we too are happy to recommend trustworthy local tradesmen, usually ones that we’ve used ourselves. But a ‘one-stop’ service is an excellent idea – there’s a few bad apples around! If you want to drop us in some flyers or help publicise your venture just pop in and see me at Johnson’s.
