Gardener Dunkeld Perth and Kinross

Finding a Gardener in Dunkeld: When your beloved garden in Dunkeld is looking somewhat tatty and overgrown you will have to decide whether to put aside a few hours to do it yourself or take the lazy option and pay someone else to do it for you. Now, you should be looking for the "right" kind of help in the shape of a professional gardener rather than the "chap down the street" who puts his hand to anything. The chances are that "bloke down the road" will not have much gardening knowledge, while the professional garder will probably have horticultural qualifications. The final decision is of course yours.

Even if you only have a small garden, there are lots of jobs that need doing on a regular basis. The warmth of spring and summer increases the frequency with which these jobs need to be done. The most common jobs that people with gardens need doing in Dunkeld are weeding, lawn mowing, general cleaning and hedge cutting. It is unlikely that your gardener will refuse tasks such as cleaning driveways, laying patios, garden fencing and waste removal.

Experienced gardeners don't come cheap and if you are being charged around £20 per hour, that is about average. Don't expect miracles, especially on the first session, and count on it taking more than a single hour for your gardener to make much difference to the look of your garden. Certain Dunkeld gardeners will want 2 or more hours work each time they visit your garden. This is understandable when you factor in travelling time, loading/unloading, and waste disposal.

Asking for money up front is not normal for gardeners (unlike builders), so be extra careful if they do. When the gardener has finished working you may be asked for payment in cash, this is not at all unusual. Irrespective of what kind of payment you agree with your gardener, always ask for a receipt as proof that he/she has been paid.

Giving a clear understanding of just what needs doing before work begins, will better help your gardener meet your expectations. Don't be afraid to ask for advice, your gardener is the best person to tell you which plants are best for your garden. Check that your gardener will remove any waste such as lawn trimmings and branches, some do not. Being lumbered with a big pile of garden waste is not a good idea.

It never hurts to be polite to those working on your property, therefore you should always offer them a drink. This type of kindness is always welcome and your gardener may show his/her gratitude by doing a great job on your garden. It's important that you and your gardener have a friendly relationship with each other. Pop into the garden for regular chats to discuss gardening ideas and plans. As with most things in life, moderation is the key. Keep chats short and to the point so that they can get on with what they are there for.

Dunkeld Garden Design: A gardener who clips your hedge or mows your grass may not necessarily be good at designing a garden.
