Finding a Gardener in Bishop Auckland: You shouldn't be afraid to ask for some assistance if your garden in Bishop Auckland is in a bit of a mess and you don't really have the time to do it yourself. Now, some Bishop Auckland people choose to fetch in a professional gardener while others plump for the "chap down the street" who tinkers around with gardens. The problem is that "guy down the road" will probably know very little about gardening, whereas a professional will have a wide spectrum of knowledge.
Everyone likes their garden to be looked after properly and by a gardener who knows his/her stuff. This means that finding a local Bishop Auckland gardener who does a good job and can be trusted should be your aim. This is even more important if you have plants or trees in your garden which need specialist care. Avoid settling for any old chancer, find yourself a decent gardener.
The jobs that need doing on a routine basis are much the same with both large and small gardens in Bishop Auckland. During spring and summer such gardening jobs need attending to more frequently. People with gardens in Bishop Auckland most often want jobs done like hedge trimming, lawn mowing, general cleaning and weeding. Jobs like cleaning driveways, laying patios, fence repairs and waste removal are also something most Bishop Auckland gardeners will tackle.
Expect to shell out something like £20 per hour for hiring the expertise of a professional gardener, the "guy down the road" will be a bit cheaper. Gardening takes time and one hour will not be enough for most gardeners to make much progress on your garden. In order for them to do all the neccessary work they may need to put in at least two or three hours. 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.
You should be suspicious of any gardener who demands payment in advance. An exception to this rule of thumb would be with more extensive tasks for example hard landscaping when being asked for a deposit for materials is quite normal. When the work has been completed to your satisfaction it would not be unusual for your gardener to ask for payment in cash. Irrespective of what kind of payment you agree with your gardener, always ask for a receipt as proof that he/she has been paid.
Be clear what your requirements are before the gardener begins work, have a list of jobs that need doing. Your gardener is there to help you, so if you have any doubts about plants or their positioning, ask for advice. Ensure that the gardener will take away lawn cuttings, weeds and twigs afterwards, not all do this.
Though usually a gardener will bring along a flask or bottle of water, it is nice to offer him/her a cup of tea while working hard on your garden. Your gardener will be grateful for such kindness. To keep a friendly rapport going with your gardener and to gain the maximum benefit from their knowledge, pop out for a chat whenever you get the chance. This doesn't mean you should stay there chattering all day though, you will be simply delaying their progress.
