Finding a Gardener in Wick: Don't get stressed out if your garden in Wick is looking unkempt and you can never find the time to sort it out, there is always the option of calling in some outside help. Now you could call in a proper Wick gardener or you could try the "fella down the road". The thing is that the "chap down the street" will know how to mow your lawn and trim your hedge, but probably not much else, whilst a professional will have more in depth knowledge. At the end of the day you will have to choose.
It is never a good idea to have somebody looking after your garden who doesn't know what they're doing. So, your aim should be to find a gardener in the Wick area who can be trusted to do a good job on your garden. Some plants and trees need special care, in which case this is even more important. Don't put up with "rogue trader" gardeners, choose a dependable one.
Large and small gardens alike need routine maintenance with various jobs that need attending to. Of course such jobs will be more regular during the spring and summer months. People with gardens in Wick most often want jobs done like general cleaning, hedge trimming, lawn mowing and weeding. More involved tasks might include: driveway cleaning, fence repairs, waste removal and laying patios.
Regular garden maintenance can cost quite a bit of money because an experienced gardener will probably charge you something like twenty pounds per hour worked. Generally a professional gardener will want to spend more than one hour on your garden. It is often not worth their while to do much less than two hours gardening at a time. 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.
It is not the norm for Wick gardeners to demand money up front, be very suspicious of anyone who does this. Many Wick gardeners favour payment in cash, very few will take cards, they will only ask after you have approved their work. To avoid the possibility of disputes in the future always ask your gardener for a receipt.
Be clear about your expectations from the very beginning, prepare a list of work you need doing. Your gardener will be there to give you advice and guidance on any aspect of your garden, so make the most of his/her knowledge. Gardening tends to generate a lot of waste, so verify that your gardener is going to dispose of this when they are finished. When they have done a good job of tidying your garden they should really take away the rubbish.
Gardeners are used to providing their own refreshments, but this shouldn't stop you from offering them a cup of tea or even a cold drink on a hot summer's day. Acts of kindness such as this will make your gardener feel appreciated and he or she will work all the harder for it. Go out and talk to your gardener now and again to keep a friendly rapport going and also to pick their brains. 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.
