Gardener Yarmouth Isle of Wight

Finding a Gardener in Yarmouth: If you have a garden that is looking tired and overgrown, the time has come to get it back in shape. If you are too busy or too idle to do it yourself you are going to have to call in some help. That help should come in the shape of a professional Yarmouth gardener with a bit of experience, and not the "bloke down the road" who knocks on your door and offers to jet wash your patio. The thing is that the "chap down the street" will know how to trim your hedge and mow your lawn, but probably not much else, whilst a professional will have more in depth knowledge. The choice is yours at the end of the day.

Find Yourself a Gardener in Yarmouth

Gardens are all about routine maintenance, with jobs to be done fortnightly or monthly, even with smaller gardens. You will need to book in more regular visits by your gardener in the spring and summer as these jobs pile up. While the jobs that people in Yarmouth need doing in their gardens are many and varied the most common are general tidying, mowing lawns, weeding and trimming hedges. Most Yarmouth gardeners will also take on jobs like cleaning driveways, fence repairs, waste clearance and laying patios.

Professional gardeners do not of course come cheap and while the "guy down the road" may be happy to charge £10 to £15 an hour, a figure of £20 per hour is more usual for professionals. 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. You might find that your gardener will not be interested in visits of less than two hours. 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.

Asking for money up front is not normal for gardeners (unlike builders), so be extra careful if they do. When the work has been completed to your satisfaction it would not be unusual for your gardener to ask for payment in cash. You don't want any arguments about payment in the future, so be sure to get a receipt.

Before the gardener gets to work on your garden make sure he or she is clear about your requirements, a list of expected tasks might help. Any self-respecting gardener will be more than happy to help you get your garden in order, use this help and guidance wisely. The removal of the waste that has been generated isn't something that all gardeners are prepared to do, make sure that yours does. Unless of course you have a compost heap and want to keep it for that.

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. Your gardener will be grateful for such kindness. Engage in some conversation with your gardener whenever you get the chance so that you can build a friendly relationship and benefit from their knowledge and ideas. Constant interruptions should however be avoided.

Yarmouth Garden Design: If you are fed up with how your garden looks and would like it to be altogether re-designed, you should not automatically assume that your gardener will be able to manage this. Generally the average gardener prefers to stick to routine gardening tasks, leaving garden design to the experts. See if your gardener is happy doing this. It might just be a case of searching for somebody else who specialises in this field.
