Finding a Gardener in Binsted: When your beloved garden in Binsted is looking somewhat tatty and overgrown you will have to decide whether to put aside a few hours to do it yourself or take the lazy option and pay someone else to do it for you. It's often easy to just bring in the "bloke down the street" who does odd jobs and gardening on the side, but think carefully, would a proper gardener be a better choice? The chances are that "bloke down the street" will not have much gardening knowledge, while the professional garder will probably have horticultural qualifications.
It is never a good idea to have somebody looking after your garden who doesn't know what they're doing. This means that finding a local Binsted gardener who does a good job and can be trusted should be your aim. It is important that your plants and trees are looked after correctly, even if they are mostly run of the mill. Take your time and get a proper Binsted gardener.
The thing with gardens is that the jobs that need doing are routine, the same things need doing perhaps weekly, fortnightly or monthly. In spring and summer you should organise more frequent gardener visits as the jobs that need doing increase. The more commonplace place tasks that need doing in Binsted gardens are likely to be weeding, hedge pruning, lawn mowing and general tidying. Most Binsted gardeners will also take on jobs like driveway cleaning, decking installation, garden fencing and waste clearance.
Professional gardeners do not of course come cheap and while the "guy down the road" may be happy to charge £10 to £15 an hour, a figure of £20 per hour is more usual for professionals. One hour in your garden is not very much and the average gardener will need to spend more time than that to get much done. You might find that your gardener will not be interested in visits of less than two hours. This isn't surprising when you appreciate that they have to get to and from your house, load/unload, and resposibly dispose of your waste at the local recycling centre.
Be extremely suspicious of any Binsted gardener who requests money up front before doing the job. When the gardener has finished working you may be asked for payment in cash, this is not at all unusual. Irrespective of what kind of payment you agree with your gardener, always ask for a receipt as proof that he/she has been paid.
Make out a list of gardening jobs that require attention and be transparent about your expectations before the work starts. Once your gardener starts you will have an expert at your fingertips, make the most of it and get plenty of advice and guidance. Removing and disposing of lawn and hedge clippings isn't always part of the service so make sure that your gardener will do this for you. You want to avoid being left with large quantities of garden waste that you cannot get shot of.
Gardening is hard work, so remember to ask if your gardener wants a drink at some point during the day. This type of kindness is always welcome and your gardener may show his/her gratitude by doing a great job on your garden. Building a friendly relationship with your gardener is always a good idea, it enables you to soak up a little of their knowledge and ideas. This is not to say you should stand there all day gabbing, this will merely hinder your gardener and stop him/her from doing their job.
