I agree with Salsachica - if you register for 'garden services' rather than as a 'gardener' I think you're OK, but limited to basic non-specialist stuff like cutting grass and trimming hedges. If you want weed, or grow plants, or do anything you might need 'specialist' knowledge for, you need to do things differently.

There is an alternative but it has its limitations.  Look into the CESU system but which applies only to those services 'aide à la famille' and depends upon certain basic conditions where the 'employer' is registered with URSSAF; the limit/amount of work involved without being in competition with local 'artisans' (as described by salsachica); your SS contributions are paid by the 'family' but it does not give you the satisfaction (or not) of being an independant 'entrepreneur'.

Our accountant registered my husband under property maintenance which covers gardening but not landscaping or anything like that as that's paysgiste (I'm not sure if I spelt that correctly!) which is an artisan's role. He can do garden clearance and maintenance eg grass cutting and cutting back brambles, hedge cutting etc.
