Remember, they have to travel to and from your house, and maybe also get to the tip with your rubbish.

Make sure your gardener is clear about your requirements, give him/her a list of jobs before they begin. Ask your gardener about your specific garden conditions and get advice about the best plants to grow to get the perfect results. It is always a good idea to check if your gardener includes the removal of waste in his/her service, this is not always the case.

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. Having regular discussions with your gardener helps you to keep abreast of the latest ideas, and also develop a friendly relationship. Constant interruptions should however be avoided.

Blackridge Garden Design

If you are fed up with how your garden looks and would like it to be altogether re-designed, you should not automatically assume that your gardener will be able to manage this. Most regular gardeners in Blackridge prefer to concentrate on the day to day garden maintenance, leaving design and such like to the better qualified. Check with your gardener to see if they do or do not manage garden design. If worse comes to worst you might have to call on an expert.

Tree Surgery Blackridge

Tree Surgery Blackridge

If necessary, some of the better gardeners in Blackridge will be quite willing to do some basic tree surgery tasks, as the vast majority of them will have at least a fundamental knowledge of plants and trees. Whilst for any major work it is advisable to use the specialist services of a trained tree surgeon, for minor pruning and trimming, your local Blackridge gardener should have all the vital skills.

It's not at all uncommon for larger trees to overgrow and get out of hand, causing a real danger to power cables or even your house. Additionally sewer lines, footings, patio areas and drives can be seriously damaged by tree roots, so keeping a close eye on any trees that are growing on your land is crucially important. If you believe that these or some other issues are being caused by trees on your property in Blackridge, have a chat with your gardener first for advice.

Garden Clearance Blackridge

Garden Clearance Blackridge

Whilst some gardeners will be willing to do a limited amount of garden clearance in Blackridge, most of them will not hold a Waste Carrier's Licence, and will therefore be restricted in the amount and type of waste they are able to remove. If the levels of waste are modest you might be able to get rid of most of it using your council garden waste bin (if you have got access to one).

You'll possibly have to bring in a licenced garden clearance specialist, if like many property owners in Blackridge, you've got a garden which is heaped up with all kinds of garbage, and not only green waste. If you have a largish amount of rubbish in your garden you might think about renting a mini-skip. This will allow you to ditch not just garden waste, but maybe also clear out your shed, your garage and perhaps even you loft space.

In general "green" garden waste could be things like: lawn trimmings, hedge clippings, rocks, pruned branches, weeds, logs, bushes, dirt, twigs and turf. (Tags: Garden Clearance Blackridge, "Green" Waste Removal Blackridge, Garden Clearances Blackridge).
