Finding a Gardener in Alfold: Calling in some outside help to get your bedraggled garden back into shape, isn't something to be ashamed of if you never seem to have enough time to do it yourself. It is tempting to call on the "geezer down the street" who helps out your neighbour, or you could actually bring in a proper Alfold gardener. While you don't need horticultural qualifications to be a gardener, most professional gardeners in the Alfold area will have a lot more knowledge than that "geezer down the street" is likely to have.
Your beloved garden deserves to be treated with respect by someone who has pride in their work and the knowledge to do it properly. Thus, your primary goal ought to be to find a gardener in the Alfold district who is known for doing a good job and is regarded as being dependable. Even if your garden has only run of the mill plants you will want them looked after correctly. Retain the services of the best you can afford and don't take chances.
The thing about gardening is that there are always jobs that need doing routinely, even on small gardens. In spring and summer you should organise more frequent gardener visits as the jobs that need doing increase. As a rule general cleaning, trimming hedges, lawn mowing and weeding are the typical gardening jobs that need doing on a regular basis. Other jobs that professional gardeners will usually handle include: garden fencing, laying patios, cleaning driveways and waste removal.
When hiring a professional gardener you are paying for his/her expertise, so expect to pay in the region of £20 for each hour worked. It might be the case that your chosen gardener will need more than an hour to whip your garden into shape. It is often not worth their while to do much less than two hours gardening at a time. They have to allow for other things such as disposing of your garden waste at the local rubbish tip, unloading tools and equipment, and actually getting to and from your home.
Respectable gardeners in Alfold would not dream of asking for payment up front for their services, therefore you should be very wary of anyone who makes this request. You might however expect to pay a deposit for materials with larger tasks such as fencing or decking. Ensure you have some cash to hand on gardening day because most gardeners prefer this kind of payment when they have finished. To avoid the possibility of disputes in the future always ask your gardener for a receipt.
Be transparent about your requirements before any work begins, give the gardener a rota of tasks that you would like to be done. It is nice to have an expert on hand to help whip your garden into shape, make sure you exploit their knowledge to the full. If there is going to be a lot of waste produced by your gardener, double check they he/she will take it away afterwards.
Remember to keep the gardener supplied with drinks if you are around while the gardening is being done. Gardeners are appreciative of gestures like this and will no doubt reward you by doing the best possible job. It helps to keep things friendly, so popping out for a chat every now and again will help to do this and also give you the chance to get some tips from your gardener. Most gardeners will not however want you standing over them all day nattering.
