Finding a Gardener in Alloa: 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. Think carefully before you hire someone because lots of people in Alloa do gardening, some are professional gardeners and some just dabble. Although many professional gardeners don't have any formal qualifications, they generally have more relevant knowledge than that "fella down the street" does. That of course is a decision that you will have to make.
Your garden is precious and you don't want it ruined by somebody who doesn't know how to appreciate it. So, be certain to locate a gardener in Alloa who you know you can trust. Some plants and trees need special care, in which case this is even more important. Don't allow a cowboy to ruin your garden, hire a decent one at the outset.
The jobs that need doing on a routine basis are much the same with both large and small gardens in Alloa. It goes without saying that regular garden maintenance is needed more frequently during the spring and summer months with a decline in the winter. Typical jobs that folk with gardens in Alloa require are general tidying, mowing lawns, trimming hedges and weeding. Tasks such as driveway cleaning, patio installation, garden fencing and waste removal are other things that your gardener will probably help you with.
Experienced gardeners don't come cheap and if you are being charged around £20 per hour, that is about average. Certainly for the first visit you should reckon on your gardener needing more than an hour to get the job done. It would not be that unusual for a gardener to have a minimum visit time of 2 to 3 hours. This is to allow for travel, unloading tools and waste disposal.
Asking for money up front is not normal for gardeners (unlike builders), so be extra careful if they do. It is not unusual for gardeners to ask for payment in cash, but only after the work is done. Whatever kind of payment you and your gardener agree on, get a receipt to avoid later arguments.
Make out a list of gardening jobs that require attention and be transparent about your expectations before the work starts. Getting the full benefit of your gardeners expertise is something you should always seek to do. Check that your gardener will remove any waste such as lawn trimmings and branches, some do not. You don't want to get left with a big pile of waste that you can't get rid of.
If you are at home while the gardening is being done, keep your gardener supplied with drinks. There is no telling what advantages may be gained by you for such little acts of kindness. In order to benefit from his/her knowledge and to keep a friendly rapport going, pop out for a chat now and again. But don't hold them up with incessant chatter, this will only hinder them and may result in inferior or incomplete work.
