Gardener Portree Highland

Finding a Gardener in Portree: If your garden is in a bit of a state and you don't have the time to sort it out yourself, there is no shame in calling in some help. That help should come in the shape of a professional Portree gardener with a bit of experience, and not the "bloke down the street" who knocks on your door and offers to jet wash your patio. Whilst even professional Portree gardeners don't always have formal qualifications, they can usually be relied upon to have more horticultural knowledge than any "bloke down the street" is apt to have.

Whether your garden is large or small, there will always be jobs that need attending to on a routine basis. The frequency of visits by your gardener will increase throughout the spring and summer and may not be necessary at all in winter. The list of the most common gardening jobs will come as no surprise and includes the likes of general cleaning, hedge trimming, weeding and mowing lawns. It isn't unusual for professional Portree gardeners to help you out with laying patios, cleaning driveways, fence repairs and waste clearance.

An hourly rate of around £20 is what you should expect to pay for a decent gardener. Gardening takes time and one hour will not be enough for most gardeners to make much progress on your garden. Most will want to put in at least 2 to 3 hours at a time to make it worth their while. 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.

If a gardener asks for payment up front you should be very wary, as this is not normal practice. Large projects like hard landscaping would be an exception to this rule, when a deposit for materials will be requested. It is not unusual for gardeners to ask for payment in cash, but only after the work is done. Agree on an acceptable form of payment before work starts and always get a receipt once the bill has been paid.
