Gardener Huntingdon Cambridgeshire

Finding a Gardener in Huntingdon: 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. It is tempting to call on the "fellow down the road" who helps out your neighbour, or you could actually bring in a proper Huntingdon gardener. Whilst formal qualifications are not a requirement for gardeners, a professional is likely to have a wider range of knowledge than that "fella down the road" and will have a reputation to uphold.

No matter what size your garden is there will always be jobs that require attention as part of a routine. During spring and summer such gardening jobs need attending to more frequently. People with gardens in Huntingdon most often want jobs done like weeding, lawn mowing, general cleaning and hedge pruning. More involved tasks might include: repairing fences, driveway cleaning, waste removal and patio installation.

Gardeners rates vary, but professionals will probably set you back around £20 per hour, with that "chap down the street" accepting perhaps £10 or £12 for the same time period. Generally a professional gardener will want to spend more than one hour on your garden. In order for them to do all the neccessary work they may need to put in at least two or three hours. This is not greed or stretching the job out, but simply making allowances for travel, unloading and waste removal when necessary.

Give short shrift to any Huntingdon gardener who expects to be paid up front before doing any work. It isn't uncommon for a gardener to ask to be paid in cash, though only after the gardening work is completed to your satisfaction. Remember to get a receipt whether you pay the gardener by card, cheque or cash, this negates later disputes.

Make out a list of gardening jobs that require attention and be transparent about your expectations before the work starts. Once your gardener starts you will have an expert at your fingertips, make the most of it and get plenty of advice and guidance. Grass cuttings and hedge clippings can be a pain to get rid of, so make certain that your gardener includes the disposal of these as part of the service. Except when you have a use for it, such as building a compost heap with your lawn trimmings.

It is polite to offer your gardener a drink or two throughout the day, they can build up quite a thirst with all that hard graft. Keeping a gardener "sweet" with little acts of kindness like this may be repaid by increased efforts on their part. Wander out and have a chat with your gardener whenever the situation allows, this helps to develop a friendly connection and gives you the chance to share ideas. Having said that, don't hold your gardener up by wittering on all day and preventing him/her from getting on with the job.
