Finding a Gardener in Drayton: If your garden is looking overgrown and untidy you should think about calling in some help if you don't have the inclination or time to tackle it on your own. When you take the plunge and do this, be careful who you choose. Do you call the "fellow down the road" or an established local Drayton gardener? The chances are that "guy down the street" will not have much gardening knowledge, while the professional garder will probably have horticultural qualifications.
You do not want your precious garden to be spoilt by someone who doesn't have to knowledge to look after it properly. So, your main objective must be to find a trustworthy Drayton gardener who has a reputation for doing an excellent job. When you've got shrubs and trees requiring specialist care, this becomes even more vital. Avoid settling for any old chancer, find yourself a decent gardener.
Large and small gardens alike need routine maintenance with various jobs that need attending to. Of course such jobs will be more regular during the spring and summer months. Typical jobs that Drayton people need doing in their gardens include: general cleaning, lawn mowing, weeding and hedge pruning. Other jobs like waste clearance, fence repairs, driveway cleaning and patio installation are also within most gardeners remit.
Professional gardeners do not of course come cheap and while the "guy down the road" may be happy to charge £10 to £15 an hour, a figure of £20 per hour is more usual for professionals. The average gardener in Drayton will not be satisfied with doing your garden in one hour sessions. Certain Drayton 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.
It should never be necessary to pay your gardener in advance of doing the work, give short shrift to anybody who asks for this. An exception to this rule of thumb would be with more extensive tasks for example decking or fencing when being asked for a deposit for materials is quite normal. Once your garden is finished you should expect to be asked for payment in cash, because most gardeners prefer this. Make sure that you get a receipt, no matter what type of payment you agree on, this will avoid arguments down the line.
Right from the start and before any work commences, ensure your gardener has a clear understanding of exactly what needs doing. Most gardeners will be happy to offer guidance and advice on various aspects of gardening, make use of this help whenever you can. If there is going to be a lot of waste produced by your gardener, double check they he/she will take it away afterwards. Unless you need it for your compost heap in which case you might want to keep it.
It doesn't hurt to offer your gardener a drink during their toils, after all gardening is thirsty work. You can expect your gardener to very much appreciate gestures like this and to repay you with increased output. It is useful to always have a friendly relationship with your gardener, so try to have regular chats with him/her, sharing ideas and opinions. This does not mean you should pester them with constant wittering which will simply hinter them and slow down the work rate.
Garden Clearance Drayton
If you permit green waste and general trash to build up in your garden, the time will come when you will need to call in a garden clearance service. Several Drayton gardeners will be able to do this, but unless they have a "Waste Carrier's Licence", they'll be limited in the amount of waste they can remove. If you've got a local council garden waste bin (you generally have to pay extra for these), you may be able to get rid of the majority of it gradually, if the volumes of waste are only relatively small.
If your garden in Drayton has become stacked up with all sorts of junk, and not merely green waste, you'll probably need to contact a registered Drayton garden clearance expert, who'll be familiar with managing and recycling such waste. You could also consider renting a mini-skip if you've got a lot of waste in your garden. This would make it possible for you to get rid of not just garden waste, but maybe also clear out your shed, your garage and perhaps even you loft space.
Generally twigs, topsoil, turf, tree branches, shrubs, dead plants, hedge clippings, lawn trimmings, logs and wood chippings, will be thought of as "green" waste. (Tags: Garden Clearance Drayton, Garden Clearances Drayton, Waste Removal Drayton).
