Finding a Gardener in Foxton: When your Foxton garden starts looking rather droopy and under the weather, it is either time to get your gardening togs on or time to call in some expert help. Should you hire a professional Foxton gardener or the "fellow down the road" who does gardens cheap? The problem is that "fellow down the street" will probably know very little about gardening, whereas a professional will have a wide spectrum of knowledge. The decision is of course up to you.
Gardeners who know their stuff will have respect for your garden and treat it much as they would their own. So take care to track down a local Foxton gardener who can be trusted to do a decent job. Even if in your trees and plants are pretty ordinary they still need to be handled with care and dedication. Don't settle for second best, get a professional gardener.
The thing with gardens is that the jobs that need doing are routine, the same things need doing perhaps weekly, fortnightly or monthly. Such jobs require even more attention during spring and summer when rain and heat generates increased growth. While the jobs that people in Foxton need doing in their gardens are many and varied the most common are hedge trimming, lawn mowing, general tidying and weeding. Additional tasks like waste clearance, fence repairs, cleaning driveways and decking installation will also be within the capabilities of most experienced gardeners.
Getting your garden done by a professional isn't cheap and you are likely to be paying close to £20 per hour for the priviledge. 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. For it to be worth their while, gardeners generally favour doing 2 or 3 hours at a stretch. This is understandable when you factor in travelling time, loading/unloading, and waste disposal.
If a gardener asks for payment up front you should be very wary, as this is not normal practice. It isn't uncommon for a gardener to ask to be paid in cash, though only after the gardening work is completed to your satisfaction. Irrespective of what kind of payment you agree with your gardener, always ask for a receipt as proof that he/she has been paid.
Don't just leave them to get on with it, make sure your explain your exact requirements before they start. 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. 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. Unless you need it for your compost heap in which case you might want to keep it.
While most gardeners bring their own food and refreshments it doesn't hurt to ask if they would like a cup of tea or coffee while they are working. Such thoughfulness will be appreciated and should ensure that your gardener does the best job possible. To keep a friendly rapport going with your gardener and to gain the maximum benefit from their knowledge, pop out for a chat whenever you get the chance. Most gardeners will not however want you standing over them all day nattering.
