Finding a Gardener in Little Dunmow: Even though you may enjoy doing the gardening you can sometimes get so behind that it becomes overgrown and a bit of a mess. This might be the right time to bring in someone else to help you. You could ask the "guy down the road" who does a bit of gardening or you could call on a professional Little Dunmow gardener. The thing is that the "fellow down the street" will know how to trim your hedge and mow your lawn, but probably not much else, whilst a professional will have more in depth knowledge. Ultimately, you will have to choose what is best for your garden.
If you cherish your garden you will want a gardener with some savvy, who appreciates what you have and looks after it correctly. So, your main objective must be to find a trustworthy Little Dunmow gardener who has a reputation for doing an excellent job. With gardens containing bushes, plants and trees requiring expert attention, getting the right gardener is even more critical. Get yourself a good gardener, don't just settle for any old one.
Gardens are all about routine maintenance, with jobs to be done fortnightly or monthly, even with smaller gardens. It goes without saying that regular garden maintenance is needed more frequently during the spring and summer months with a decline in the winter. Typically people with gardens in Little Dunmow need jobs done like weeding, trimming hedges, general cleaning and grass cutting. It is likely that your gardener will also help you with cleaning driveways, waste clearance, repairing fences and laying patios.
The rates charged by professional gardeners varies widely but if you are paying an hourly rate of about £20, that is reasonable. Don't expect miracles, especially on the first session, and count on it taking more than a single hour for your gardener to make much difference to the look of your garden. For it to be worth their while, gardeners generally favour doing 2 or 3 hours at a stretch. Bear in mind the fact that they have travelling time to and from your home, and they may need to visit the local dump to dispose or your garden waste.
Be cautious of anyone who demands payment for gardening services in advance. If your gardener asks to be paid in cash after the job is complete, this is not something to be worried about and is normal within the trade. To avoid any arguments later on, make sure you get a receipt no matter what kind of payment you agree on.
Before any work commences make sure your gardener is clear about what needs to be done and has a plan of action to complete it. Getting the full benefit of your gardeners expertise is something you should always seek to do. Not every gardener is prepared to remove all the green waste, it would pay you to verify that yours is happy to do this. This garden waste can build up and at some point you are going to need to get rid of it.
Gardening is hard work, so remember to ask if your gardener wants a drink at some point during the day. Considerations like this will always be appreciated and will often result in a better standard of work. Don't be afraid to wander out and have a chat with your gardener when circumstances permit, this will help build a friendly connection with the gardener and encourage a sharing of ideas. It is not however a good idea to pester them constantly which will have the effect of annoying them and slowing the work down.
