Gardener Lizard Cornwall

Finding a Gardener in Lizard: Calling in some outside help to get your bedraggled garden back into shape, isn't something to be ashamed of if you never seem to have enough time to do it yourself. Now, some Lizard people choose to fetch in a professional gardener while others plump for the "fella down the street" who tinkers around with gardens. 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. The decision as they say is yours.

Gardens are all about routine maintenance, with jobs to be done fortnightly or monthly, even with smaller gardens. The warmth of spring and summer increases the frequency with which these jobs need to be done. Most people in Lizard who have gardens will typically need tasks done like weeding, grass cutting, hedge pruning and general tidying. More involved tasks might include: cleaning driveways, repairing fences, laying patios and waste removal.

Gardeners rates vary, but professionals will probably set you back around £20 per hour, with that "chap down the road" accepting perhaps £10 or £12 for the same time period. Most Lizard gardeners will not want to do just one hours work. It would not be that unusual for a gardener to have a minimum visit time of 2 to 3 hours. It is not just a case of working on your garden, they need to allow for travelling time and visits to the local rubbish tip.

You should never expect to have to pay any gardener in advance. Paying a deposit for materials might be appropriate for bigger jobs like decking or fencing. Once the work is completed, it's not unusual for the gardener to ask for payment in cash rather than a cheque. Don't forget to ask for a receipt irrespective of if you pay by card, cheque or cash, having proof of payment prevents later quarrels.

Giving a clear understanding of just what needs doing before work begins, will better help your gardener meet your expectations. In order for you to get the most out of your gardener, you should always be willing to ask for advice and help. Make sure that all twigs, weeds and lawn cuttings will be removed and disposed of afterwards, certain gardeners don't do this. Unless you have a garden waste bin and you can fit it in that.

While most gardeners bring their own food and refreshments it doesn't hurt to ask if they would like a cup of tea or coffee while they are working. This type of kindness is always welcome and your gardener may show his/her gratitude by doing a great job on your garden. So that you can forge a friendly relationship with your gardener it is often a nice idea to pop out for a chat now and again. This also helps you to gain some additional gardening knowhow and useful tips. Don't overdo this though, because constant nattering will slow down the whole process and may put your gardener off returning.
