Finding a Gardener in Hove: Bringing in some outside assistance to knock a tired and bedraggled garden back into shape is something many busy people have to do these days, especially after a long and blustery winter. That help should come in the shape of a professional Hove gardener with a bit of experience, and not the "guy down the road" who knocks on your door and offers to jet wash your patio. While you don't need horticultural qualifications to be a gardener, most professional gardeners in the Hove area will have a lot more knowledge than that "fella down the street" is likely to have. The choice is yours at the end of the day.

Find a Decent Gardener in Hove

Your garden is precious and you don't want it ruined by somebody who doesn't know how to appreciate it. Therefore you should be careful that you choose a gardener in Hove who can be relied upon. The importance of this cannot be stressed enough, when certain shrubs and trees are involved. Don't settle for any old gardener, get a decent one.

Gardener Hove East Sussex

There is a seemingly endless list of jobs to be done in the garden, even if it is relatively small. It is essential to get these jobs done even more frequently when spring and then summer arrives. The more commonly required jobs that need doing in Hove gardens are mowing lawns, weeding, general cleaning and hedge trimming. Many quality gardeners in Hove will also be willing to assist with driveway cleaning, waste removal, garden fencing and patio installation.

Professional gardeners do not of course come cheap and while the "chap down the road" may be happy to charge £10 to £15 an hour, a figure of £20 per hour is more usual for professionals. 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. At least two to three hours work is often the minimum that gardeners will wish to put in each time. Remember, they have to travel to and from your house, and maybe also get to the tip with your rubbish.

If a gardener asks for payment up front you should be very wary, as this is not normal practice. However, you might expect to pay a deposit for large jobs such as garden fencing. Ensure you have some cash to hand on gardening day because most gardeners prefer this kind of payment when they have finished. Irrespective of what kind of payment you agree with your gardener, always ask for a receipt as proof that he/she has been paid.

Always explain exactly what your needs are, a list of projects will make things clearer for the gardener. Knowing which plants are most suitable for your garden's condition isn't always easy, so ask your gardener for advice on this. Verify that any garden waste resulting from the work will be taken away, not all gardeners will do this.

Spare a thought for your gardener toiling away on your property with no facilities at hand. Offer them the use of your toilet and perhaps provide a drink. You can expect your gardener to very much appreciate gestures like this and to repay you with increased output. It helps to keep things friendly, so popping out for a chat every now and again will help to do this and also give you the chance to get some tips from your gardener. As with most things in life, moderation is the key. Keep chats short and to the point so that they can get on with what they are there for.

Garden Clearance Hove

Garden Clearance Hove

If you allow green waste and general junk to accumulate in your garden, a time will arise when you'll need to call in a garden clearance service. A few Hove gardeners will be ready to do this, but unless they have a "Waste Carriers Licence", they will be restricted on the amount and form of waste they can remove. If only minimal volumes of waste are involved it might be possible to get rid of most of it using your council garden waste bin (if you have one), otherwise you will need some specialist help.

Of course, many gardens in Hove are piled up with all manner of garbage, and not merely green waste, so for this form of clearance you will probably have to contact a certified Hove garden clearance expert. There are other possibilities you could consider if you have a significant quantity of rubbish in your garden, renting a mini-skip may be an alternative you could look at. This would make it possible for you to dispose of not just garden waste, but maybe also clear out your shed, your garage and possibly even you attic.

Generally pruned branches, hedge clippings, logs, turf, wood chippings, dirt, twigs, lawn trimmings, weeds and bushes, will be thought of as "green" waste.
