Gardener Port Ellen

Gardens are all about routine maintenance, with jobs to be done fortnightly or monthly, even with smaller gardens. These jobs will need doing more regularly in the spring and summer and perhaps not at all in the winter. In general weeding, general tidying, lawn mowing and hedge pruning are the common jobs that people in Port Ellen need doing in their gardens. It isn't unusual for professional Port Ellen gardeners to help you out with repairing fences, decking installation, cleaning driveways and waste clearance.

Who you hire may be dependent on your budget and whilst that "geezer down the road" might only charge you £10 to £15 per hour, a seasoned professional is going to set you back nearer to £20 for an hours gardening. You shouldn't expect too much from your gardener on his/her first visit, because gardening takes time and dependant on the amount of work that needs doing, several hours may be required. The majority will generally prefer to spend 2 to 3 hours on each visit. The reason for this is that they have to allow time for travel, waste disposal and getting tools on and off their truck.

It should never be necessary to pay your gardener in advance of doing the work, give short shrift to anybody who asks for this. Don't be surprised if your gardener asks for cash payment, this isn't unusual, but of course only when the work is finished. Once you have paid your gardener get a receipt, so there are no disputes about unpaid bills.

Always explain exactly what your needs are, a list of projects will make things clearer for the gardener. Ask your gardener about your specific garden conditions and get advice about the best plants to grow to get the perfect results. Not every gardener is prepared to remove all the green waste, it would pay you to verify that yours is happy to do this.

It pays to be thoughtful and supplying your gardener with a drink or two will help his/her day along. Your gardener will be grateful for such kindness. Pop out for a chat with your gardener from time to time so you can benefit from their ideas and keep a friendly rapport. However, don't follow them around all day, generally getting in their way and bombarding them with constant questions.
