Gardener Haddington East Lothian

Finding a Gardener in Haddington: You should never be ashamed to ask for assistance if your Haddington garden is a bit lacklustre and you simply cannot find the time to tackle it yourself. That help should come in the shape of a professional Haddington gardener with a bit of experience, and not the "geezer down the road" who knocks on your door and offers to jet wash your patio. The chances are that "guy down the street" will not have much gardening knowledge, while the professional garder will probably have horticultural qualifications. That of course is a decision that you will have to make.

Gardener Haddington in East Lothian

Whether your garden is large or small, there will always be jobs that need attending to on a routine basis. Gardener visits will generally need to be more regular in spring and summer, with jobs being done more frequently. People with gardens in Haddington most often want jobs done like hedge trimming, weeding, general tidying and mowing lawns. It isn't unusual for professional Haddington gardeners to help you out with fence repairs, driveway cleaning, laying patios and waste clearance.

The rates charged by professional gardeners varies widely but if you are paying an hourly rate of about £20, that is reasonable. You shouldn't expect too much from your gardener on his/her first visit, because gardening takes time and dependant on the amount of work that needs doing, several hours may be required. The majority will generally prefer to spend 2 to 3 hours on each visit. Don't forget, they have to get to and from your location, they have to unload and load their van and they may have to dispose of your waste which could mean a trip to the local tip.

Be wary of "gardeners" who ask for payment in advance, no genuine Haddington gardener would do this. You might however expect to pay a deposit for materials with larger tasks such as decking or fencing. Of course gardeners often ask for payment in cash after the work is completed. You don't want any arguments about payment in the future, so be sure to get a receipt.

Make sure your gardener is clear about your requirements, give him/her a list of jobs before they begin. 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. Gardening tends to generate a lot of waste, so verify that your gardener is going to dispose of this when they are finished.

If you are at home while the gardening is being done, keep your gardener supplied with drinks. Such kindnesses are much appreciated and will likely be repaid by extra efforts on your behalf. 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. Having said that, don't hold your gardener up by wittering on all day and preventing him/her from getting on with the job.

Haddington Garden Design: While a gardener may be a genius when it comes to looking after your garden, it might be a different "kettle of fish" when it comes to garden design.

Speak to your gardener and determine if this branch of gardening is something they are comfortable with. It might just be a case of searching for somebody else who specialises in this field.
