Finding a Gardener in Highnam: 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. Now, you might be tempted to bring in the "bloke down the street" who you have heard does some gardening, or more sensibly contact a proper Highnam gardener. Though quite often you will find that a professional gardener in Highnam doesn't hold any horticultural qualifications, he or she will probably be considerably more knowledgeable than your average "bloke down the street". Hopefully, reading this article will help you in your decision.
You definately need to get a gardener who knows how to treat your garden and its contents. So, be certain to locate a gardener in Highnam who you know you can trust. If you have a garden containing certain trees and shrubs, the importance of this is even more apparent. Avoid settling for any old chancer, find yourself a decent gardener.
There are plenty of jobs that require regular attention even if you've only got a small garden. Spring is the busiest time with jobs needing to be done more frequently than during the rest of the year. The more commonly required jobs that need doing in Highnam gardens are hedge trimming, general cleaning, weeding and mowing lawns. Many gardeners will also be happy to take care of jobs like laying patios, garden fencing, driveway cleaning and waste removal
Gardeners rates vary, but professionals will probably set you back around £20 per hour, with that "guy down the street" accepting perhaps £10 or £12 for the same time period. One hours work is not enough to make much impression on your garden, so you should reckon on them needing to spend more time than this. Visits spanning 2 to 3 hours are about the average for Highnam gardeners. 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.
Steer clear of gardeners who request payment in advance. You might however expect to pay a deposit for materials with larger tasks such as garden fencing. After the completion of your garden it would not be at all uncommon for your gardener to ask to be paid in cash. No matter what form of payment you agree on, be sure to get a receipt so there are no arguments later on.
Before any work commences make sure your gardener is clear about what needs to be done and has a plan of action to complete it. 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. If there is going to be a lot of waste produced by your gardener, double check they he/she will take it away afterwards. A big pile of waste that you can't get rid of is not something that you want left in your garden.
It doesn't hurt to offer your gardener a drink during their toils, after all gardening is thirsty work. There is no telling what advantages may be gained by you for such little acts of kindness. In order to build a friendly rapport with your gardener and to pick their brains for gardening tips, go out for a natter from time to time. Occasionally is the key word with this approach however, don't hold them up by standing over them and nattering all day long.
