Gardener Stanstead St Margarets Hertfordshire

Finding a Gardener in Stanstead St Margarets: If you wake up one day and realise just how untidy and overgrown your garden has become, it might be appropriate to call in somebody to help you out, unless you can find the time in your busy life to tackle it yourself. Now, some Stanstead St Margarets people choose to fetch in a professional gardener while others plump for the "fella down the road" who tinkers around with gardens. Although many professional gardeners don't have any formal qualifications, they generally have more relevant knowledge than that "fellow down the street" does. The decision is of course up to you.

Even if you only have a small garden, there are lots of jobs that need doing on a regular basis. As you can imagine the need for this regular maintenance is more necessary in spring and summer. People with gardens in Stanstead St Margarets most often want jobs done like weeding, lawn mowing, general tidying and hedge trimming. Many gardeners will also be happy to take care of jobs like waste removal, driveway cleaning, fence repairs and laying patios

While that "guy down the road" might quote you ten to fifteen pounds an hour to "do" your garden, an experienced gardener will come at a considerably higher price (£20 per hour maybe). Gardening takes time and one hour will not be enough for most gardeners to make much progress on your garden. You might find that your gardener will not be interested in visits of less than two hours. If you think that this is just to stretch the job out, think again. They have to travel to and from your home, they have to unload mowers and garden tools, and they will probably have to load your waste onto their trailer and take it to a nearby rubbish tip.

You should be suspicious of any gardener who demands payment in advance. Having said that, a deposit for materials may be required for bigger projects like fencing or decking. Once the work is completed, it's not unusual for the gardener to ask for payment in cash rather than a cheque. Whether you pay by cash, cheque or card, insist on a receipt, this will prevent later disputes over payment.

Be transparent about your requirements before any work begins, give the gardener a rota of tasks that you would like to be done. Always ask your gardener for advice, he or she will know exactly what plants are best suited to your garden conditions. It is always a good idea to check if your gardener includes the removal of waste in his/her service, this is not always the case. Garden waste is not the easiest stuff to get rid of, so make sure they take it away.

Gardening is hard work, so remember to ask if your gardener wants a drink at some point during the day. Your gardener will be grateful for such kindness. Go out and talk to your gardener now and again to keep a friendly rapport going and also to pick their brains. However, avoid incessant prattling which will only annoy the gardener and impede his/her progress.
