Gardener Dundee Angus

Finding a Gardener in Dundee: Sorting out a dreary and overgrown garden is not everyone's cup of tea, so if you find yourself in this situation you should not be afraid to ask for some outside assistance. That help should come in the shape of a professional Dundee gardener with a bit of experience, and not the "fellow down the road" who knocks on your door and offers to jet wash your patio. Whilst formal qualifications are not a requirement for gardeners, a professional is likely to have a wider range of knowledge than that "geezer down the road" and will have a reputation to uphold.

You need your cherished garden to be given a degree of respect by whoever is looking after it. Always be certain to get hold of a local Dundee gardener who can be counted on. This will be even more critical for those of you with trees and shrubs in your garden. Don't allow a cowboy to ruin your garden, hire a decent one at the outset.

Routine maintenance is the key with all gardens, whether small or large, with a seemingly endless list of jobs to do. More frequent visits will be necessary in the spring and summertime and maybe none at all during the wintertime. The more commonly required jobs that need doing in Dundee gardens are trimming hedges, general tidying, grass cutting and weeding. Additional tasks like garden fencing, waste removal, driveway cleaning and patio installation will also be within the capabilities of most experienced gardeners.

The rates charged by professional gardeners varies widely but if you are paying an hourly rate of about £20, that is reasonable. Gardening takes time and one hour will not be enough for most gardeners to make much progress on your garden. Some gardeners may even insist on a minimum slot of two or three hours. This isn't surprising when you appreciate that they have to get to and from your house, load/unload, and resposibly dispose of your waste at the local recycling centre.

Don't pay any Dundee gardener in advance of the job being done, this is not the norm and they may disappear with your money. 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. Quite often a gardener will ask to be paid in cash once the work is complete and that is of course fine. To avoid any arguments later on, make sure you get a receipt no matter what kind of payment you agree on.

At the outset explain to your gardener what your exact requirements are, a job list is also helpful in setting out your priorities. Your gardener will be there to give you advice and guidance on any aspect of your garden, so make the most of his/her knowledge. 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.

It is customary to offer your gardener a hot or cold drink, though many bring their own refreshments. Acts of kindness such as this will make your gardener feel appreciated and he or she will work all the harder for it. By chatting with your gardener you can start to establish a friendly relationship, this should enable you to immerse yourself in their ideas and soak up some of their gardening knowledge. This is not to say you should stand there all day gabbing, this will merely hinder your gardener and stop him/her from doing their job.

Dundee Garden Design: If you are looking to have your entire garden re-designed it might be necessary to find a specialist Dundee garden designer. It might depend on exactly what you have in mind, simple re-designs will be within the capabilities of most professional gardeners. Ask your gardener if he/she is comfortable with this aspect of gardening. If not you'll have to look for a specialist.
