Gardener Westergate West Sussex

Finding a Gardener in Westergate: Calling in some outside help to get your bedraggled garden back into shape, isn't something to be ashamed of if you never seem to have enough time to do it yourself. That help should come in the shape of a professional Westergate gardener with a bit of experience, and not the "fellow down the street" who knocks on your door and offers to jet wash your patio. Whilst formal qualifications are not a requirement for gardeners, a professional is likely to have a wider range of knowledge than that "fellow down the road" and will have a reputation to uphold. You will need to decide which gardener is most suitable for your requirements.

Even if your garden is relatively small, there are a handful of jobs which need attending to on a routine basis. More frequent visits will be necessary in the spring and summertime and maybe none at all during the wintertime. You'll not be surprised to learn that the most commonly requested gardening jobs are weeding, grass cutting, hedge trimming and general cleaning. Additional tasks like waste clearance, cleaning driveways, patio installation and garden fencing will also be within the capabilities of most experienced gardeners.

On the subject of price, this can vary with areas and gardeners, but charges of about twenty pounds per hour are normal and may be even higher. Certainly for the first visit you should reckon on your gardener needing more than an hour to get the job done. For it to be worth their while, gardeners generally favour doing 2 or 3 hours at a stretch. 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 Westergate gardener who requests money up front before doing the job. Big projects such as patio laying may be an exception, because materials have to be bought and a deposit may be required. Payment in cash is not unusual for gardeners, though this will be requested after all work is completed and approved. Whether you pay by card, cheque or cash, insist on a receipt, this will prevent later disputes over payment.

Right from the start and before any work commences, ensure your gardener has a clear understanding of exactly what needs doing. The layout of your garden is something any decent gardener will be able to help you with, they will know which plants perform best where, don't be scared to ask for guidance. Taking away all the garden waste such as hedge clippings and lawn trimmings may not be included in the service, therefore you should establish whether your gardener will do this or not.

Though usually a gardener will bring along a flask or bottle of water, it is nice to offer him/her a cup of tea while working hard on your garden. Such kindnesses are much appreciated and will likely be repaid by extra efforts on your behalf. In order to benefit from his/her knowledge and to keep a friendly rapport going, pop out for a chat now and again. As with most things in life, moderation is the key. Keep chats short and to the point so that they can get on with what they are there for.

Westergate Garden Design: While a gardener may be a genius when it comes to looking after your garden, it might be a different "kettle of fish" when it comes to garden design. Some gardeners in Westergate branch out into this area of gardening whilst other concentrate on the more routine jobs. Establish if your gardener is one of those who relish garden design. If not you'll have to look for a specialist.
