Finding a Gardener in Brantham: Bringing in some outside assistance to knock a tired and bedraggled garden back into shape is something many busy people have to do these days, especially after a long and blustery winter. Now, some people in Brantham opt for the "fellow down the street" who can put his hand to anything, while others choose a professional gardener with an established reputation. The chances are that "guy down the street" will not have much gardening knowledge, while the professional garder will probably have horticultural qualifications. Perhaps this article will help you make your choice.
Everyone likes their garden to be looked after properly and by a gardener who knows his/her stuff. Always ensure that you locate a gardener in Brantham who you can rely on to do a nice job. When you've got shrubs and trees requiring specialist care, this becomes even more vital. Don't put up with chancers, seek out a good gardener.
There is a seemingly endless list of jobs to be done in the garden, even if it is relatively small. With the arrival of spring the frequency with which such tasks need attending to increases. Most people in Brantham who have gardens will typically need tasks done like hedge cutting, general cleaning, lawn mowing and weeding. Other jobs like cleaning driveways, waste clearance, laying patios and fence repairs are also within most gardeners remit.
Who you hire may be dependent on your budget and whilst that "fellow down the street" might only charge you £10 to £15 per hour, a seasoned professional is going to set you back nearer to £20 for an hours gardening. Generally a professional gardener will want to spend more than one hour on your garden. Many gardeners might even insist on a minimum visit time of at least two hours or so. When you take into consideration travelling time, getting equipment on and off the van, and going to the local tip with your garden waste, this is understandable.
You should never expect to have to pay any gardener in advance. When the gardener has finished working you may be asked for payment in cash, this is not at all unusual. Whether you pay by card, cash or cheque, insist on a receipt, this will prevent later disputes over payment.
Before any work commences make sure your gardener is clear about what needs to be done and has a plan of action to complete it. Your gardener is there to help you, so if you have any doubts about plants or their positioning, ask for advice. Not all gardeners like to take away the waste and lawn clippings, so check that yours does. When they have done a good job of tidying your garden they should really take away the rubbish.
Working in the garden can get cold in winter and hot in summer, so spare a thought for your gardener and keep him/her supplied with a drink. You may be repaid for thoughtfulness like this by a better service and a happier gardener. 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. As with most things in life, moderation is the key. Keep chats short and to the point so that they can get on with what they are there for.
