Gardener Fulham Greater London

Finding a Gardener in Fulham: Calling in some outside help to get your bedraggled garden back into shape, isn't something to be ashamed of if you never seem to have enough time to do it yourself. You could ask the "guy down the road" who does a bit of gardening or you could call on a professional Fulham gardener. The problem is that "fellow down the road" will probably know very little about gardening, whereas a professional will have a wide spectrum of knowledge.

There is a seemingly endless list of jobs to be done in the garden, even if it is relatively small. It goes without saying that regular garden maintenance is needed more frequently during the spring and summer months with a decline in the winter. The list of the most common gardening jobs will come as no surprise and includes the likes of weeding, hedge pruning, grass cutting and general cleaning. It is unlikely that your gardener will refuse tasks such as cleaning driveways, fence repairs, waste removal and patio installation.

How much you pay depends on who you hire, the hourly rate for a professional gardener will be at least £20, while you might get away with £10 - £15 if you take a chance on that "bloke down the street". In order to make much difference to your garden, most gardeners will need to invest more than an hour of hard graft. The majority will generally prefer to spend 2 to 3 hours on each visit. 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.

Be extremely suspicious of any Fulham gardener who requests money up front before doing the job. Payment in cash is not unusual for gardeners, though this will be requested after all work is completed and approved. No matter if you pay your gardener with cheque, card or cash, ask for a receipt, you don't want any disputes or arguments about payments down the road.

Be transparent about your requirements before any work begins, give the gardener a rota of tasks that you would like to be done. Knowing which plants are most suitable for your garden's condition isn't always easy, so ask your gardener for advice on this. It might be sensible to verify that your gardener disposes of any waste materials as part of the service, not all Fulham gardeners do.

It doesn't hurt to offer your gardener a drink during their toils, after all gardening is thirsty work. Keeping a gardener "sweet" with little acts of kindness like this may be repaid by increased efforts on their part. It helps to keep things friendly, so popping out for a chat every now and again will help to do this and also give you the chance to get some tips from your gardener. Do not take this to the extreme however, and impede their work with constant babbling, they may become frustrated and not do a proper job.

Fulham Garden Design: A gardener who clips your hedge or mows your grass may not necessarily be good at designing a garden. You might find that your gardener is not necessarily the best person for this job, though they will probably know somebody who can help. Find out if your gardener has a history of garden design and can show you a portfolio. Otherwise it will simply be a case of finding a specialist in this field.
