Finding a Gardener in Dover: 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. So, you could contact the "chap down the street" who somebody told you about or alternatively get in touch with a professional Dover gardener who will likely do a better job. Although many professional gardeners don't have any formal qualifications, they generally have more relevant knowledge than that "fella down the road" does. The final decision is of course yours.
Having your garden treated with the respect it deserves is something your should be able to expect from any gardener. So, finding a trustworthy and reliable Dover gardener is something you should take care in doing. Some plants and trees need special care, in which case this is even more important. Don't settle for less than the best.
Routine maintenance is the key with all gardens, whether small or large, with a seemingly endless list of jobs to do. Gardener visits will generally need to be more regular in spring and summer, with jobs being done more frequently. Typical jobs that folk with gardens in Dover require are hedge trimming, weeding, general cleaning and mowing lawns. Additional tasks like decking installation, cleaning driveways, fence repairs and waste removal will also be within the capabilities of most experienced gardeners.
Decent gardeners do not come cheap, the "guy down the road" might do your gardening for £10 or £12 an hour, but a professional will probably charge nearer to £20 per hour. You should anticipate your gardener needing more time than one hour is he/she is to get your garden looking good again. Sessions of 2 or 3 hours are standard for many gardeners in Dover. This is to allow for travel, unloading tools and waste disposal.
Trustworthy Dover gardeners will never ask for money in advance, so be distrustful of anybody who does. You might however expect to pay a deposit for materials with larger tasks such as fencing or decking. When the work has been completed to your satisfaction it would not be unusual for your gardener to ask for payment in cash. No matter what form of payment you agree on, be sure to get a receipt so there are no arguments later on.
Make out a list of gardening jobs that require attention and be transparent about your expectations before the work starts. Knowing which plants are most suitable for your garden's condition isn't always easy, so ask your gardener for advice on this. 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.
Gardening is hard work, so remember to ask if your gardener wants a drink at some point during the day. Treating your gardener well could easily result in you getting some extra work done at no additional charge. Having regular discussions with your gardener helps you to keep abreast of the latest ideas, and also develop a friendly relationship. But you should not hinder their work with endless talking, they may rush to catch up and not do the job properly.
