Gardener Hadleigh Essex

Finding a Gardener in Hadleigh: 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. When you take the plunge and do this, be careful who you choose. Do you call the "fella down the street" or an established local Hadleigh gardener? 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. You will need to decide which gardener is most suitable for your requirements.

The jobs that need doing on a routine basis are much the same with both large and small gardens in Hadleigh. These jobs will need doing more regularly in the spring and summer and perhaps not at all in the winter. As a rule mowing lawns, general cleaning, hedge pruning and weeding are the typical gardening jobs that need doing on a regular basis. The majority of Hadleigh gardeners will also be more than happy to deal with bigger tasks like decking installation, driveway cleaning, fence repairs and waste clearance.

Gardeners rates vary, but professionals will probably set you back around £20 per hour, with that "chap down the road" accepting perhaps £10 or £12 for the same time period. One hour in your garden is not very much and the average gardener will need to spend more time than that to get much done. It's possible that your gardener will not be prepared to work for periods of less than 2 hours or more. This is not greed or stretching the job out, but simply making allowances for travel, unloading and waste removal when necessary.

Steer clear of gardeners who request payment in advance. Exceptions to this rule could be in respect of large projects such as patio laying where considerable amounts of materials are needed. 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. Remember to get a receipt whether you pay the gardener by card, cash or cheque, this negates later disputes.

Be transparent about your requirements before any work begins, give the gardener a rota of tasks that you would like to be done. 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. Not every gardener is prepared to remove all the green waste, it would pay you to verify that yours is happy to do this. This should really be part of the service.

Working outdoors can be tough and thirsty work, so make sure that there is the offer of a cold or hot drink to help the day along. This type of kindness is always welcome and your gardener may show his/her gratitude by doing a great job on your garden. Try to have a regular dialogue with your gardener, during which you can swap ideas, gain some knowledge and forge a friendly rapport at the same time. However, avoid incessant prattling which will only annoy the gardener and impede his/her progress.
