Ilkeston Gardening & Landscaping Services

Finding a Gardener in Ilkeston: 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's often easy to just bring in the "guy down the road" who does odd jobs and gardening on the side, but think carefully, would a proper gardener be a better choice? The problem is that "fellow down the road" will probably know very little about gardening, whereas a professional will have a wide spectrum of knowledge. This is a choice that you alone will have to make.

Find a Local Ilkeston Gardener

It is not too much to ask that any gardener treats your garden, plants and contents with a degree of respect.

With gardens containing bushes, plants and trees requiring expert attention, getting the right gardener is even more critical. Don't settle for any old gardener, get a decent one.

Gardener Ilkeston in Derbyshire

There are plenty of jobs that require regular attention even if you've only got a small garden. These routine jobs have to be done more frequently throughout the spring and summertime. The more commonplace place tasks that need doing in Ilkeston gardens are likely to be lawn mowing, general tidying, hedge trimming and weeding. It isn't unusual for professional Ilkeston gardeners to help you out with driveway cleaning, decking installation, garden fencing and waste clearance.

How much you pay depends on who you hire, the hourly rate for a professional gardener will be at least £20, while you might get away with £10 - £15 if you take a chance on that "bloke down the street". You shouldn't expect too much from your gardener on his/her first visit, because gardening takes time and dependant on the amount of work that needs doing, several hours may be required. Visits spanning 2 to 3 hours are about the average for Ilkeston gardeners. This is not greed or stretching the job out, but simply making allowances for travel, unloading and waste removal when necessary.

Asking for money up front is not normal for gardeners (unlike builders), so be extra careful if they do. You might however expect to pay a deposit for materials with larger tasks such as decking installation. Quite often a gardener will ask to be paid in cash once the work is complete and that is of course fine. Remember to get a receipt whether you pay the gardener by cheque, cash or card, this negates later disputes.
