Gardener Plymouth Devon

Finding a Gardener in Plymouth: If your garden is looking overgrown and untidy you should think about calling in some help if you don't have the inclination or time to tackle it on your own. That help should come in the shape of a professional Plymouth gardener with a bit of experience, and not the "chap down the street" who knocks on your door and offers to jet wash your patio. The chances are that "guy down the street" will not have much gardening knowledge, while the professional garder will probably have horticultural qualifications.

The thing about gardening is that there are always jobs that need doing routinely, even on small gardens. Gardener visits will generally need to be more regular in spring and summer, with jobs being done more frequently. In general lawn mowing, weeding, hedge pruning and general tidying are the common jobs that people in Plymouth need doing in their gardens. It is likely that your gardener will also help you with garden fencing, waste removal, laying patios and driveway cleaning.

Professional gardeners do not of course come cheap and while the "geezer down the street" may be happy to charge £10 to £15 an hour, a figure of £20 per hour is more usual for professionals. 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. Generally gardeners would prefer to spend a minimum of 2 - 3 hours to make it worthwhile. This is not greed or stretching the job out, but simply making allowances for travel, unloading and waste removal when necessary.

It is not the norm for Plymouth gardeners to demand money up front, be very suspicious of anyone who does this. "Cash is king" as they say, and most gardeners prefer this type of payment, but only once the work is complete of course. Agree on an acceptable form of payment before work starts and always get a receipt once the bill has been paid.

Make out a list of gardening jobs that require attention and be transparent about your expectations before the work starts. Planning out exactly what goes where in your garden is important, the help and guidance of your gardener will help you to get it right. Verify that any garden waste resulting from the work will be taken away, not all gardeners will do this. Give preference to gardeners who agree to take away all the garden waste.

If you are at home while the gardening is being done, keep your gardener supplied with drinks. Small things like this will help make the gardener happy in his/her work and a contented gardener may work harder on your behalf. 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 stand there all day twittering on however, which only results in a frustrated gardener and an incomplete garden.

Plymouth Garden Design: It should not be automatically assumed that a gardener who mows your lawn or trims your hedge will be good at garden design. Certain Plymouth gardeners welcome the challenge of designing but many are happier just to do your routine garden maintenance. A brief discussion about this aspect of gardening should soon establish if your gardener is willing to take it on. If not it will be a case of finding an expert.

Some Plymouth gardeners will also help with composting, shrub planting, bedding plants, potting out, digging, leaf clearance, tree surgery, plant selection, water features, artificial turf, garden design, nature gardens, pond cleaning, winter maintenance, snow clearance, irrigation, garden trellis, garden pest control, bush trimming, greenhouse assembly, raised beds, garden electrics, disease identification, soil health checks, hedge planting and other gardening projects in Plymouth, Devon.
