Finding a Gardener in Sunningdale: When your beloved garden in Sunningdale is looking somewhat tatty and overgrown you will have to decide whether to put aside a few hours to do it yourself or take the lazy option and pay someone else to do it for you. It's often easy to just bring in the "bloke down the road" who does odd jobs and gardening on the side, but think carefully, would a proper gardener be a better choice? While a proper gardener may not have any qualifications he or she will know a bit more than that "guy down the road".
Your garden is precious and you don't want it ruined by somebody who doesn't know how to appreciate it. So, be certain to locate a gardener in Sunningdale who you know you can trust. This is even more important if you have plants or trees in your garden which need specialist care. Don't get stuck with rogues and cowboys, hire a proper gardener.
The routine jobs which need doing in the garden are likely to be much the same regardless whether your garden is small or big. Such jobs require even more attention during spring and summer when rain and heat generates increased growth. While the jobs that people in Sunningdale need doing in their gardens are many and varied the most common are general tidying, mowing lawns, trimming hedges and weeding. Most Sunningdale gardeners will also take on jobs like laying patios, waste clearance, driveway cleaning and repairing fences.
Professional gardeners do not of course come cheap and while the "bloke down the road" may be happy to charge £10 to £15 an hour, a figure of £20 per hour is more usual for professionals. It would be unfair to expect any gardener to whip your garden into shape in just a single hour, so count on it taking longer than this. Visits spanning 2 to 3 hours are about the average for Sunningdale gardeners. This is to allow for travel, unloading tools and waste disposal.
Asking for money up front is not normal for gardeners (unlike builders), so be extra careful if they do. Large projects like patio laying would be an exception to this rule, when a deposit for materials will be requested. Gardeners will often prefer to be paid in cash, although only once the work is finished. Irrespective of what kind of payment you agree with your gardener, always ask for a receipt as proof that he/she has been paid.
Giving a clear understanding of just what needs doing before work begins, will better help your gardener meet your expectations. It isn't always easy for you to know which plants will grow best in your garden, the advice of your gardener will be invaluable. Check that your gardener will remove any waste such as lawn trimmings and branches, some do not. Except when you have a use for it, such as building a compost heap with your lawn trimmings.
It doesn't hurt to offer your gardener a drink during their toils, after all gardening is thirsty work. Acts of kindness such as this will make your gardener feel appreciated and he or she will work all the harder for it. In order to build a friendly rapport with your gardener and to pick their brains for gardening tips, go out for a natter from time to time. But don't hold them up with incessant chatter, this will only hinder them and may result in inferior or incomplete work.
Garden Clearance Sunningdale
Whilst some gardeners will be willing to do a certain amount of garden clearance in Sunningdale, the vast majority of them will not have a "Waste Carrier Licence", and will therefore be restricted in the amount of waste they can remove. If only small quantities of waste are involved it may be possible to dispose of most of it by using your council garden waste bin (if you've got one), otherwise you'll need additional help.
If your garden in Sunningdale has become piled up with all kinds of rubbish, and not merely green waste, you'll probably have to contact a certified Sunningdale garden clearance expert, who'll be used to dealing with and recycling such waste materials. If you have a good amount of junk in your garden you might also think about renting a mini-skip. Taking this route would make it possible for you to perhaps have a clear out in your shed, your garage and possibly even your loft, together with your garden waste.
Essentially logs, shrubs, hedge clippings, wood chippings, turf, twigs, tree branches, lawn trimmings, soil and dead plants, will be thought of as "green" waste.
