Finding a Gardener in Houghton: 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. It is tempting to call on the "fellow down the street" who helps out your neighbour, or you could actually bring in a proper Houghton gardener. While a proper gardener may not have any qualifications he or she will know a bit more than that "guy down the road".

Those monthly, fortnightly or even weekly gardening jobs are often necessary even if your garden is small. With the arrival of spring the frequency with which such tasks need attending to increases. As a rule weeding, general cleaning, trimming hedges and lawn mowing are the typical gardening jobs that need doing on a regular basis. The majority of Houghton gardeners will also be more than happy to deal with bigger tasks like driveway cleaning, repairing fences, patio installation and waste removal.

Regular garden maintenance can cost quite a bit of money because an experienced gardener will probably charge you something like twenty pounds per hour worked. It is unlikely that any gardener will be able to achieve very much in just one hour. At least two to three hours work is often the minimum that gardeners will wish to put in each time. This isn't surprising when you appreciate that they have to get to and from your house, load/unload, and resposibly dispose of your waste at the local recycling centre.

It should never be necessary to pay your gardener in advance of doing the work, give short shrift to anybody who asks for this. Payment of some money up front could be appropriate when bigger jobs are being done like patio laying. Once the work is completed, it's not unusual for the gardener to ask for payment in cash rather than a cheque. To avoid the possibility of disputes in the future always ask your gardener for a receipt.

Gardening tends to generate a lot of waste, so verify that your gardener is going to dispose of this when they are finished.

Having said that, don't hold your gardener up by wittering on all day and preventing him/her from getting on with the job.

Garden Clearance Houghton

Garden Clearance Houghton

Although most gardeners will be happy to do a certain amount of garden clearance in Houghton, most of them won't have a "Waste Carriers Licence", and will subsequently be restricted in the quantity of waste they're able to take. If you've got a local council garden waste bin (you normally pay extra for these), you may be able to dispose of most of it gradually, if the volumes of waste are only relatively small.

You'll probably have to contact a licenced garden clearance specialist, if like a lot of people in Houghton, you've got a garden that is stacked up with all manner of junk, and not only green waste.
