Lerwick Gardening & Landscaping Services

Finding a Gardener in Lerwick: If you wake up one day and realise just how untidy and overgrown your garden has become, it might be appropriate to call in somebody to help you out, unless you can find the time in your busy life to tackle it yourself. That help should come in the shape of a professional Lerwick gardener with a bit of experience, and not the "bloke 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 Lerwick area will have a lot more knowledge than that "bloke down the road" is likely to have. Ultimately, you will have to choose what is best for your garden.

Find Yourself a Gardener in Lerwick

The thing with gardens is that the jobs that need doing are routine, the same things need doing perhaps weekly, fortnightly or monthly. You will need to book in more regular visits by your gardener in the spring and summer as these jobs pile up. The list of the most common gardening jobs will come as no surprise and includes the likes of weeding, grass cutting, general tidying and trimming hedges. Most Lerwick gardeners will also take on jobs like garden fencing, waste removal, driveway cleaning and laying patios.

Professional gardeners do not of course come cheap and while the "bloke down the road" may be happy to charge £10 to £15 an hour, a figure of £20 per hour is more usual for professionals. One hour in your garden is not very much and the average gardener will need to spend more time than that to get much done. Certain Lerwick gardeners will want 2 or more hours work each time they visit your garden. Don't forget, they have to get to and from your location, they have to unload and load their van and they may have to dispose of your waste which could mean a trip to the local tip.

If a gardener asks for payment up front you should be very wary, as this is not normal practice. Of course gardeners often ask for payment in cash after the work is completed. Always insist on a receipt whether you pay by cheque, card or cash, proof of payment is important in case of any future arguments.

Be clear about your expectations from the very beginning, prepare a list of work you need doing. Don't be afraid to ask for advice, your gardener is the best person to tell you which plants are best for your garden. Ensure that the gardener will take away lawn cuttings, weeds and twigs afterwards, not all do this.

Gardening is thirsty work, so don't forget to make a hot or cold drink for your gardener to keep his/her spirits up. Considerations like this will always be appreciated and will often result in a better standard of work. Having regular discussions with your gardener helps you to keep abreast of the latest ideas, and also develop a friendly relationship. Do not take this to the extreme however, and impede their work with constant babbling, they may become frustrated and not do a proper job.

Lerwick Garden Design

You might need to find a specialist Lerwick garden designer if you are planning to totally re-design your garden. While some gardeners in Lerwick will have a go at garden design they may not be the best people to help with this. The best way to find out if your gardener does garden design is to have a chat with them. Otherwise you'll have to search for an expert in the field of garden design.

If you permit "green" waste and general junk to build up in your garden, a time will transpire when you will need to call in a garden clearance specialist. Some Lerwick gardeners will be able to do this, but unless they have a Waste Carrier Licence, they will be restricted on the amount of waste they can take. If the quantities of waste are modest they might be able to get rid of a lot of it by using your council garden waste bin (if you've got one).

If your garden in Lerwick is piled up with all manner of rubbish, and not just green waste, you will possibly need to get in touch with a certified Lerwick garden clearance expert, who'll be familiar with dealing with and recycling such waste materials. There are other options you could think about if you have a large quantity of waste in your garden, hiring a mini-skip may be an alternative you could look into. Adopting this course will enable you to perhaps clear out your shed, your garage and possibly even your attic, along with your garden waste.

Typically "green" garden waste will be things like: bushes, twigs, topsoil, hedge clippings, pruned branches, dead plants, lawn trimmings, turf, logs and wood chippings.
