Tradesman Saver’s Public Liability Cover For Gardeners
Our standard cover is:
- Up to £5 million cover for public and products liability
- £10,000 cover for any financial loss (£50K cover optional)
- Worldwide liability cover for temporary work abroad for up to 14 days (excluding the USA and Canada)
There are many insurance options which would benefit your gardeners business, and public liability is one of the most significant. This protects you if your work ends up damaging a client’s property or injuring a client or member of the public. For example, you may need to pay compensation if a client trips over your tools and is injured or you accidentally damage a customer’s carpet with your muddy work boots.
Claims such as this can cost a small fortune but having public liability cover means you won’t be responsible for paying any of the resulting expenses. You can purchase this as part of our automatic package, which also covers you for financial loss, legal expenses, and more.
Other relevant insurance policies for a gardeners business include employer’s liability, which is a legal requirement for anybody who employs staff, and professional indemnity insurance. Here at Tradesman Saver we have all the coverage you may need as a gardener and you can get your quote online in minutes.

Gardener’s Public Liability Insurance
Finding the right insurance to suit your gardening business can be tricky – especially with the large variety of insurance terms being thrown around. And with so much information to digest, it can be easy to get lost and end up thoroughly confused. However, it doesn’t have to be this way. Although there are a whole bunch of covers you should consider when taking out your insurance, the one you really need to know about is public liability insurance. Public liability insurance is absolutely vital as it basically acts as the glue that holds your whole insurance policy together. It provides cover for a host of accidents and incidents you might come up against, protecting you from any claims resulting from injury to third parties and damage to their property. It covers both claims from clients and members of the public alike and provides comprehensive all-round cover to ensure your business is protected, no matter what happens.
It Shouldn’t Happen To A Gardener
Here are some examples of claims:
You’re working on a garden and your employee is cutting the hedges on a ladder. The ladder is faulty and breaks while your employee is stood on it and they are injured in the fall. Your employee then decides to make a compensation claim against you. This is a situation where your employer’s liability insurance could save you from a massive pay out – with this cover, your insurer would cover the costs of the compensation, saving you from paying it out of your own pocket.
You’re mowing a client’s lawn. As you’re mowing, a stone chips up from the mower and cracks your client’s window. They make a claim against you for the costs of repair. Fortunately, your public liability insurance is there to save the day – your insurer pays out the cost of fixing the window, leaving you free to continue focusing on your business.
