Finding a Gardener in Haslingden: When your Haslingden 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 Haslingden gardener or the "geezer down the street" who does gardens cheap? The problem is that "geezer down the road" will probably know very little about gardening, whereas a professional will have a wide spectrum of knowledge. This is a choice that you alone will have to make.

Large and small gardens alike need routine maintenance with various jobs that need attending to. The frequency of visits by your gardener will increase throughout the spring and summer and may not be necessary at all in winter. As a rule lawn mowing, weeding, general cleaning and trimming hedges are the typical gardening jobs that need doing on a regular basis. It is likely that your gardener will also help you with garden fencing, waste removal, driveway cleaning and decking installation.

While that "geezer down the street" might quote you ten to fifteen pounds an hour to "do" your garden, an experienced gardener will come at a considerably higher price (£20 per hour maybe). It would be unfair to expect any gardener to whip your garden into shape in just a single hour, so count on it taking longer than this. It's possible that your gardener will not be prepared to work for periods of less than 2 hours or more. This is not excessive if you consider that they have to drive to your house and back and might need to take your waste to the local rubbish tip, which could be miles away.

You should never expect to have to pay any gardener in advance. Exceptions to this rule could be in respect of large projects such as decking installation where considerable amounts of materials are needed. It is quite normal for a gardener to request cash payment, rather than card or cheque, so make sure you have some to hand. Having proof of payment is essential to avoid quarrels about unpaid bills, so make sure you get a receipt.

Before the gardener gets to work on your garden make sure he or she is clear about your requirements, a list of expected tasks might help. Ask your gardener about your specific garden conditions and get advice about the best plants to grow to get the perfect results. Verify that any garden waste resulting from the work will be taken away, not all gardeners will do this.

Gardening is thirsty work, so don't forget to make a hot or cold drink for your gardener to keep his/her spirits up. You can expect your gardener to very much appreciate gestures like this and to repay you with increased output. Having regular discussions with your gardener helps you to keep abreast of the latest ideas, and also develop a friendly relationship. Don't stand there all day twittering on however, which only results in a frustrated gardener and an incomplete garden.
