Okehampton Gardening & Landscaping Services

Finding a Gardener in Okehampton: 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. Now, you should be looking for the "right" kind of help in the shape of a professional gardener rather than the "geezer down the road" who puts his hand to anything. Although many professional gardeners don't have any formal qualifications, they generally have more relevant knowledge than that "guy down the road" does.

It is never a good idea to have somebody looking after your garden who doesn't know what they're doing. So make sure you find a gardener in Okehampton who you can trust to do a good job. The importance of this cannot be stressed enough, when certain shrubs and trees are involved. Take your time and get a proper Okehampton gardener.

Gardener Okehampton

The jobs that need doing on a routine basis are much the same with both large and small gardens in Okehampton. In spring and summer you should organise more frequent gardener visits as the jobs that need doing increase. People with gardens in Okehampton most often want jobs done like hedge trimming, general tidying, lawn mowing and weeding. Many gardeners will also be happy to take care of jobs like decking installation, garden fencing, waste removal and cleaning driveways

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 "geezer down the road". It might be the case that your chosen gardener will need more than an hour to whip your garden into shape. At least two to three hours work is often the minimum that gardeners will wish to put in each time. Travel to and away from your home, bringing in and taking away mowers and tools, and the responsible disposal of your waste all have to be factored in.

Be cautious of anyone who demands payment for gardening services in advance. Paying a deposit for materials might be appropriate for bigger jobs like landscaping. Ensure you have some cash to hand on gardening day because most gardeners prefer this kind of payment when they have finished. Agree on an acceptable form of payment before work starts and always get a receipt once the bill has been paid.

Prior to work commencing give the gardener a clear picture of what you're expecting to be done. Once your gardener starts you will have an expert at your fingertips, make the most of it and get plenty of advice and guidance. Removing and disposing of lawn and hedge clippings isn't always part of the service so make sure that your gardener will do this for you.

Offer your gardener a hot or cold drink while they are at work and the use of a toilet is also helpful. Treating your gardener well could easily result in you getting some extra work done at no additional charge. In order to benefit from his/her knowledge and to keep a friendly rapport going, pop out for a chat now and again. This doesn't mean you should stay there chattering all day though, you will be simply delaying their progress.
