Finding a Gardener in Sanquhar: Bringing in some outside assistance to knock a tired and bedraggled garden back into shape is something many busy people have to do these days, especially after a long and blustery winter. Think carefully before you hire someone because lots of people in Sanquhar do gardening, some are professional gardeners and some just dabble. The problem is that "guy down the street" will probably know very little about gardening, whereas a professional will have a wide spectrum of knowledge. The decision is of course up to you.

Even if your garden is relatively small, there are a handful of jobs which need attending to on a routine basis. These repeat jobs will have to be done a lot more often in springtime and summer, dying off to nothing by winter. Among the most common jobs needing to be done in Sanquhar gardens are hedge trimming, mowing lawns, weeding and general cleaning. The majority of Sanquhar gardeners will also be more than happy to deal with bigger tasks like waste removal, patio installation, garden fencing and cleaning driveways.

Expect to shell out something like £20 per hour for hiring the expertise of a professional gardener, the "chap down the road" will be a bit cheaper. One hour in your garden is not very much and the average gardener will need to spend more time than that to get much done. It's possible that your gardener will not be prepared to work for periods of less than 2 hours or more. This isn't surprising when you appreciate that they have to get to and from your house, load/unload, and resposibly dispose of your waste at the local recycling centre.

Be extremely suspicious of any Sanquhar gardener who requests money up front before doing the job. This rule may not apply with larger projects such as landscaping when payment of some money for materials is normal. Many Sanquhar gardeners favour payment in cash, very few will take cards, they will only ask after you have approved their work. No matter if you pay your gardener with cash, cheque or card, ask for a receipt, you don't want any disputes or arguments about payments down the road.

Be clear about your expectations from the very beginning, prepare a list of work you need doing. Your gardener is there to help you, so if you have any doubts about plants or their positioning, ask for advice. Getting rid of your lawn trimmings and hedge clippings won't always be part of the service so ensure that in your case it is. It is unfair to leave you with piles of garden waste.

Gardening is hard work, so remember to ask if your gardener wants a drink at some point during the day. This sort of kindness is always very much appreciated. Don't be afraid to wander out and have a chat with your gardener when circumstances permit, this will help build a friendly connection with the gardener and encourage a sharing of ideas. Don't overdo this though, because constant nattering will slow down the whole process and may put your gardener off returning.
