Gardener Stevenage Hertfordshire

Finding a Gardener in Stevenage: 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. Now, you might be tempted to bring in the "fellow down the road" who you have heard does some gardening, or more sensibly contact a proper Stevenage gardener.

You will need to decide which gardener is most suitable for your requirements.

No matter what size your garden is there will always be jobs that require attention as part of a routine. With the arrival of spring the frequency with which such tasks need attending to increases. You'll not be surprised to learn that the most commonly requested gardening jobs are hedge cutting, grass cutting, general tidying and weeding. Other jobs like patio installation, driveway cleaning, repairing fences and waste removal are also within most gardeners remit.

When hiring a professional gardener you are paying for his/her expertise, so expect to pay in the region of £20 for each hour worked. 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. It is often not worth their while to do much less than two hours gardening at a time. This is not greed or stretching the job out, but simply making allowances for travel, unloading and waste removal when necessary.

It would not be normal for a genuine Stevenage gardener to ask for payment in advance, so be wary if this happens to you. More involved tasks like fencing or decking can be considered an exception, since expensive materials need to be obtained and quite rightly a deposit will be requested. If your gardener asks to be paid in cash after the job is complete, this is not something to be worried about and is normal within the trade. No matter what form of payment you agree on, be sure to get a receipt so there are no arguments later on.

Don't just leave them to get on with it, make sure your explain your exact requirements before they start. Make the most of having a specialist on hand and follow their guidance with regards to your choice of plants and shrubs. Removing and disposing of lawn and hedge clippings isn't always part of the service so make sure that your gardener will do this for you. You really do not want to be stuck with a huge mound of garden waste that is difficult to dispose of.

If you are at home while the gardening is being done, keep your gardener supplied with drinks. You can expect your gardener to very much appreciate gestures like this and to repay you with increased output. To keep a friendly rapport going with your gardener and to gain the maximum benefit from their knowledge, pop out for a chat whenever you get the chance. This is not to say you should stand there all day gabbing, this will merely hinder your gardener and stop him/her from doing their job.
