Finding a Gardener in Irthlingborough: Nobody likes to see their garden looking a little the worse for wear, so fetching in some outside help is always a possibility if you can't find the time to spare. Think carefully before you hire someone because lots of people in Irthlingborough do gardening, some are professional gardeners and some just dabble. While a proper gardener may not have any qualifications he or she will know a bit more than that "guy down the road".
If you cherish your garden you will want a gardener with some savvy, who appreciates what you have and looks after it correctly. So make sure you find a gardener in Irthlingborough who you can trust to do a good job. Trees and shrubs may require expert management, meaning this is more important than ever. Don't put up with "rogue trader" gardeners, choose a dependable one.
Gardens are all about routine maintenance, with jobs to be done fortnightly or monthly, even with smaller gardens. Of course such jobs will be more regular during the spring and summer months. You'll not be surprised to learn that the most commonly requested gardening jobs are grass cutting, weeding, general cleaning and hedge pruning. Many quality gardeners in Irthlingborough will also be willing to assist with laying patios, waste removal, fence repairs and cleaning driveways.
When hiring a professional gardener you are paying for his/her expertise, so expect to pay in the region of £20 for each hour worked. 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. It's possible that your gardener will not be prepared to work for periods of less than 2 hours or more. 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.
Give short shrift to any Irthlingborough gardener who expects to be paid up front before doing any work. Paying a deposit for materials might be appropriate for bigger jobs like hard landscaping. It is quite normal for a gardener to request cash payment, rather than card or cheque, so make sure you have some to hand. No matter if you pay your gardener with cash, card or cheque, ask for a receipt, you don't want any disputes or arguments about payments down the road.
Before work starts prepare a plan of expected tasks with the gardener, this will help them to live up to your expectations. Don't be afraid to ask for advice, your gardener is the best person to tell you which plants are best for your garden. 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. You really do not want to be stuck with a huge mound of garden waste that is difficult to dispose of.
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. There is no telling what advantages may be gained by you for such little acts of kindness. By having a quick chat with your gardener every once in a while, you can pick up some tips while also building a friendly rapport. Don't overdo this though, because constant nattering will slow down the whole process and may put your gardener off returning.
