Gardener Cranbrook Kent

Finding a Gardener in Cranbrook: Even though you may enjoy doing the gardening you can sometimes get so behind that it becomes overgrown and a bit of a mess. This might be the right time to bring in someone else to help you. That help should come in the shape of a professional Cranbrook gardener with a bit of experience, and not the "fellow down the street" who knocks on your door and offers to jet wash your patio. Whilst a professional gardener might not necessarily have qualifications he/she will likely know considerably more than that "geezer down the street". The final decision is of course yours.

Gardens are all about routine maintenance, with jobs to be done fortnightly or monthly, even with smaller gardens. The frequency of visits by your gardener will increase throughout the spring and summer and may not be necessary at all in winter. The more commonplace place tasks that need doing in Cranbrook gardens are likely to be weeding, lawn mowing, general tidying and trimming hedges. It is unlikely that your gardener will refuse tasks such as decking installation, driveway cleaning, repairing fences and waste clearance.

While that "fella down the road" might quote you ten to fifteen pounds an hour to "do" your garden, an experienced gardener will come at a considerably higher price (£20 per hour maybe). Certainly for the first visit you should reckon on your gardener needing more than an hour to get the job done. Many gardeners might even insist on a minimum visit time of at least two hours or so. The reason for this is that they have to allow time for travel, waste disposal and getting tools on and off their truck.

If a gardener asks for payment up front you should be very wary, as this is not normal practice. Gardeners will often prefer to be paid in cash, although only once the work is finished. Always insist on a receipt whether you pay by card, cheque or cash, proof of payment is important in case of any future arguments.

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. 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.

Spare a thought for your gardener toiling away on your property with no facilities at hand. Offer them the use of your toilet and perhaps provide a drink. Small things like this will help make the gardener happy in his/her work and a contented gardener may work harder on your behalf. Try to have a regular dialogue with your gardener, during which you can swap ideas, gain some knowledge and forge a friendly rapport at the same time. You should not however take this to the extreme, and stand there chattering all day long, which will only hold up your gardener and make the job take longer.
