Finding a Gardener in Dalkeith: If you wake up one day and realise just how untidy and overgrown your garden has become, it might be appropriate to call in somebody to help you out, unless you can find the time in your busy life to tackle it yourself. Now, you might be tempted to bring in the "fellow down the street" who you have heard does some gardening, or more sensibly contact a proper Dalkeith gardener. It is the job of any self-respecting gardener in Dalkeith to have the necessary knowledge to look after your garden, while that "bloke down the road" is just in it for a few quid on the side. You will have to decide what is best for your situation.
It should certainly go without saying that any gardener you hire should be informed enough to care for your garden and the contents within it. Make sure you locate a dependable Dalkeith gardener who'll do a real good job. The importance of this cannot be stressed enough, when certain shrubs and trees are involved. Find yourself a decent Dalkeith gardener, not just any guy who knocks on your door.
The thing with gardens is that the jobs that need doing are routine, the same things need doing perhaps weekly, fortnightly or monthly. The frequency of visits by your gardener will increase throughout the spring and summer and may not be necessary at all in winter. You'll not be surprised to learn that the most commonly requested gardening jobs are grass cutting, general tidying, hedge trimming and weeding. Tasks such as garden fencing, waste removal, cleaning driveways and patio installation are other things that your gardener will probably help you with.
While that "guy down the street" 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). Depending on the state of your garden it is likely that your gardener will need more than just one hour to make an impression. Certain Dalkeith gardeners will want 2 or more hours work each time they visit your garden. 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.
Be wary of "gardeners" who ask for payment in advance, no genuine Dalkeith gardener would do this. 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. It is not unusual for gardeners to ask for payment in cash, but only after the work is done. You don't want any arguments about payment in the future, so be sure to get a receipt.
Right from the start and before any work commences, ensure your gardener has a clear understanding of exactly what needs doing. It is nice to have an expert on hand to help whip your garden into shape, make sure you exploit their knowledge to the full. Make sure that all twigs, weeds and lawn cuttings will be removed and disposed of afterwards, certain gardeners don't do this.
Gardeners are used to providing their own refreshments, but this shouldn't stop you from offering them a cup of tea or even a cold drink on a hot summer's day. This is always appreciated by gardeners and they will repay you by doing an extra fine job. Engage in some conversation with your gardener whenever you get the chance so that you can build a friendly relationship and benefit from their knowledge and ideas. In doing this, don't prevent them from getting on with their work, because this will make the job take longer and cost you more money in the long run.
