Finding a Gardener in Henstridge: If your Henstridge garden is in need of some attention and nobody in your household is willing to tackle it, don't be afraid to ask for a little help and assistance. Now, you should be looking for the "right" kind of help in the shape of a professional gardener rather than the "fella down the street" who puts his hand to anything. Though now and again you will find that "chap down the road" has some reasonable gardening knowledge, a professional gardener in Henstridge will generally be more qualified in horticultural matters. You will have to decide what is best for your situation.
You need your cherished garden to be given a degree of respect by whoever is looking after it. So, try to find a local Henstridge gardener who is trustworthy and reliable. If you have a garden containing certain trees and shrubs, the importance of this is even more apparent. Don't put up with "rogue trader" gardeners, choose a dependable one.
No matter whether your garden in Henstridge is large or small the jobs keep piling up. During spring and summer such gardening jobs need attending to more frequently. Typical jobs that folk with gardens in Henstridge require are lawn mowing, weeding, general tidying and trimming hedges. Other jobs that professional gardeners will usually handle include: waste removal, fence repairs, cleaning driveways and laying patios.
An hourly rate of around £20 is what you should expect to pay for a decent gardener. Generally a professional gardener will want to spend more than one hour on your garden. Generally gardeners would prefer to spend a minimum of 2 - 3 hours to make it worthwhile. If you think that this is just to stretch the job out, think again. They have to travel to and from your home, they have to unload mowers and garden tools, and they will probably have to load your waste onto their trailer and take it to a nearby rubbish tip.
Asking for money up front is not normal for gardeners (unlike builders), so be extra careful if they do. Once the work is completed, it's not unusual for the gardener to ask for payment in cash rather than a cheque. No matter what form of payment you agree on, be sure to get a receipt so there are no arguments later on.
Be clear about your expectations from the very beginning, prepare a list of work you need doing. The layout of your garden is something any decent gardener will be able to help you with, they will know which plants perform best where, don't be scared to ask for guidance. It might be sensible to verify that your gardener disposes of any waste materials as part of the service, not all Henstridge gardeners do. You don't want your garden cluttered with garden waste that is difficult to get rid of.
If you are at home while the gardening is being done, keep your gardener supplied with drinks. You may be repaid for thoughtfulness like this by a better service and a happier gardener. In order to benefit from his/her knowledge and to keep a friendly rapport going, pop out for a chat now and again. This is not to say you should stand there all day gabbing, this will merely hinder your gardener and stop him/her from doing their job.
