Finding a Gardener in Stoke Gabriel: 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. Should you hire a professional Stoke Gabriel gardener or the "bloke down the road" who does gardens cheap? Whilst even professional Stoke Gabriel gardeners don't always have formal qualifications, they can usually be relied upon to have more horticultural knowledge than any "fella down the street" is apt to have. If you don't know who to choose, keep reading.
If you cherish your garden you will want a gardener with some savvy, who appreciates what you have and looks after it correctly. This means that finding a local Stoke Gabriel gardener who does a good job and can be trusted should be your aim. Some plants and trees need special care, in which case this is even more important. Don't put up with chancers, seek out a good gardener.
No matter whether your garden in Stoke Gabriel is large or small the jobs keep piling up. These jobs will need doing more regularly in the spring and summer and perhaps not at all in the winter. Typically people with gardens in Stoke Gabriel need jobs done like hedge trimming, grass cutting, general tidying and weeding. Tasks such as driveway cleaning, waste clearance, garden fencing and patio installation are other things that your gardener will probably help you with.
Gardeners rates vary, but professionals will probably set you back around £20 per hour, with that "bloke down the road" accepting perhaps £10 or £12 for the same time period. One hours work is not enough to make much impression on your garden, so you should reckon on them needing to spend more time than this. Most will want to put in at least 2 to 3 hours at a time to make it worth their while. Remember, they have to travel to and from your house, and maybe also get to the tip with your rubbish.
Avoid any "gardener" who demands money up front, no trustworthy Stoke Gabriel gardener will expect this. Big projects such as patio laying may be an exception, because materials have to be bought and a deposit may be required. Gardeners will often prefer to be paid in cash, although only once the work is finished. Whatever kind of payment you and your gardener agree on, get a receipt to avoid later arguments.
Prior to work commencing give the gardener a clear picture of what you're expecting to be done. Your gardener is there to help you, so if you have any doubts about plants or their positioning, ask for advice. Make sure that all twigs, weeds and lawn cuttings will be removed and disposed of afterwards, certain gardeners don't do this. A big pile of waste that you can't get rid of is not something that you want left in your garden.
While most gardeners bring their own food and refreshments it doesn't hurt to ask if they would like a cup of tea or coffee while they are working. You may be repaid for thoughtfulness like this by a better service and a happier gardener. Try to have a regular dialogue with your gardener, during which you can swap ideas, gain some knowledge and forge a friendly rapport at the same time. Constant interruptions should however be avoided.
